|With invention of 4 colors CGA in early 1980s, newly founded Sierra Company produced King Quest I, a first title in "King Quest", "Space Quest" and "Police Quest" series. These games gave world fame to Sierra and actually became standard in quest and adventure games crowd.
Company Sierra prevailed in the market of quest games for nearly fifteen years, until in 1998 quests development group was purchased by one of the divisions of Vivendi Universal company. The first part appeared in 1984, and represents almost same text adventure, but with the use of graphics and interactive interface - you can control your character with the arrow keys on the keyboard, and enter text commands as well. Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy suggested the idea of ??creating quest, parodying some popular fiction movies of the time - "Star Wars”, “Star Trek," "Back to the Future", etc. First game of series came in 1986, under the title Space Quest I: Roger Wilco in the Sarien Encounter. In mid-1980's, a retired police officer Jim Walls had the idea to realize his knowledge of the policeman in a computer game. So in 1987 the year was born the first part of Police Quest series.
Even more surprising was Sierra’s decision to start “Leisure Suit Larry” series. Throughout all seven parts, he tried to seduce busty beauties and quality of his adventures has evolved from the primitive graphics and input commands from the keyboard in the Leisure Suit Larry I: In the Land of the Lounge Lizards to a chic animated in the seventh leg of the series called Leisure Suit Larry 7: Love for Sail! . Jokes in the game were, of course, vulgar, but, nevertheless, do not seem much to be platitudinous and obscene. Very low grade scenario base and artwork in next Larry version - seems to put an end to spacious "XXXX Quest" series.
Nowadays quest games began to appear less and less.|
