  Space Quest - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Space Quest is a series of six science-fiction computer games that follow the adventures of a hapless janitor named Roger Wilco, as he campaigns through the galaxy for "truth, justice and really clean floors".
The primary means of input in Space Quest I, as in many other AGI games, was through the use of a text parser for entering commands and use of the keypad or arrow keys for moving Roger Wilco around the screen.
Space Quest IV was released on floppy disks on March 4, 1991, and released on CD-ROM in December 1992 with full speech support and featuring Laugh-In announcer Gary Owens as the voice of the narrator.

 Space Quest 0: Replicated - Windows PC review
And every hardcore adventurer has not only finished all Space Quest titles, but was also monitoring the Space Quest community, played a fan-based game called Space Quest: The Lost Chapter and was intrigued when Space Quest 0: Replicated was released.
Especially Space Quest was full of gentle humor and parody, which made it the most popular of all the quest series (with the exception of Quest for Glory, thanks to strong role-playing features, such as character development and fighting).
Space Quest 0: Replicated is one of the most pleasant game surprises of the summer.

 SpaceQuest.Net - Space Quest 7
The decision was based upon the relatively successful Space Quest 6 (which was released a while back in March 1995) and upon the feedback Sierra was getting from fans all around the planet who demanded to see another Roger Wilco space adventure.
In the short run that postpones Space Quest 7 development, but in the long run we will have the same advantage as Quest for Glory and SWAT, because we'll be able to demand resources when we're at the critical point in Space Quest's development.
As you all know, the path to Space Quest 7 has been long and bumpy, and we were never sure what we would find at the end of the road.

 Review: Space Quest 1: The Sarien Encounter   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Space Quest 1 is the first game of the Space Quest series (which I severely hope you could figure out by the "1" following the word "Space Quest" in the title), and it introduces the space janitor/hero/all-around great guy Roger Wilco.
The original Space Quest 1 is made in AGI, which means Roger is controlled by the keyboard, and actions are done by a text parser (i.e., "look at dead body" or "touch self").
The Space Quest theme is one of the most addictive oodlings in history, and the rest of the music not only sounds great, it fits the mood perfectly.

 SpaceQuest.Net - Space Quest 1 Story
Far beyond the reaches of known space lies a planetary system known to its inhabitants as Earnon.
Monitoring the Arcada's transmissions are Sariens, space pirates who cruise the galaxies wreaking havoc and exposing aerosol cans to open flame or fire.
Once citizens of Earnon, the Sariens were banished long ago for their warlike ways (one would think they would have gotten over it by now, but apparently they still hold a grudge).

 Sierra's Space Quest (1986) | Gameology
Space Quest also strives to emulate the sharp wit of the other title, but does so only erratically.
Thankfully, Space Quest is a short game that can be completed in a little under an hour--more than enough time for the game scholar to see what the game has to offer.
Sierra enjoyed great success with Space Quest and launched five sequels (and VGA versions of some of the older titles)and the fan community has offered us several fun spin-offs, one of which (Space Quest 0: Replicated) I've played and really enjoyed.
