Make sure you add two in-game screenshots here though, or else this thread would be locked.

SOME INFO

Backgrounds and sprites're from official SQ games and unofficial fanremakes. Main theme of game is Space Quest 4 (there's 'SQ12 timeline' in this game).

In SQ12 by Slash your hero is sequel police, enemy from official game. And you must find and destroy Roger Wilco ;) There're fun moments, nostalgia and it's nice game for fans.


In demo you must do part of Vohaul's mission. And also there're some easter eggs.


Btw, Slash Vohaul (Dr.Slash) created several new graphics from old ones (for example, SP in timepod, SP death, SP with ancient bird, etc).

You can take English tra-file from 1st post, it's my work. I'm not very good English speaker, so it's not perfect, but you can understand main thoughts and some parts of humour.


So enjoy! IMHO it's brilliance SQ 'VGA' work.

I greatly appreciate you taking the time to release an english translation on time with your demo/game.  It would be so much better if everyone producing games in non-English took the time to get a generic English translation first (even a poor one).  Looks good!

Edit:  Could you upload to a site that is English and doesn't require you to install any suspect addons to download a file?  Mediafire will do in a pinch.

While I completely agree with the point, I must note (since I have a knowledge of that nuisance) that you are not oblidged to install that. You can unclick the checkbox under download link, if I remember correctly (but yeah, still something annoying).

In fact I don't know why, but I can't edit any information about this game on it's page  :(

Did you actually get the permission of Infamous Adventures to use that background form the SQ II remake?

in fact most of Labion bgs I used were made by Kippesoap and AGDI. Only one of them was made by IA

You probably shouldn't use a background from IA's Space Quest 2 remake as they haven't released the game yet.  Or at least ask them out courtesy.

This thread is a mess...

DrSlash - please update your original post to include the in-game screenshots and why do the "other" screenshots say Space Quest II?

I disagree, any AGSer can do anything and rip any background and sprites. One problem is ripping resources from commercial games, but really it's not so "problemo", 'cause Doc won't sell this game. It's just free fan game for fun.

btw, this thread exists on IA's forum. So nevermind.


Doc gonna create second demo, probably in July 2010.

Nope.  He didn't ask IA if he could use our SQ2 background.

But I'll take this announcement as "asking" and say yeah, we're fine with it.  Better to encourage people to make games than to slam them down, I always say.

Just feel free to send me a message next time and ask.  I could probably provide you with a better quality image.

On the contrary, it's a fan implementation of a storyline that Sierra barely even bothered to bring up, save for Space Quest IV. Even the introduction to this fangame was interesting, as it provides an almost alternative-universe sort of perspective on the Space Quest series, told from the perspective of evil.

Maybe you should've read the post before mine there - what I was talking about was time travel.
