The GOG releases just have the original AGI versions of the first games. I would note that it has been reported that my 2006 VU patches do work for the Steam releases. I did do a patch for the GOG KQ release, but none of the others. Someone told me that the Steam QfG release is not as good as my GOG release. I have no more information about any other Steam Sierra releases.


The GOG ones have the AGI and SCI of the first games, except for Space Quest. That's the only one missing the AGI. It only has the SCI if I remember correctly.

A quick check. LSL: both AGI and SCI. KQ: AGI only. SQ: AGI only. PQ: SCI only. The QfG collection I made sure that both QfG1 EGA and VGA were included.

Should have known better than doubt. Weird. I swear, I was making a stink that only the SQ was missing AGI or SCI...

Ah, here it is:

No idea why I am not swearing about the other versions missing (I mean I have them from CD collections and such, so they're installed, but it'd be nice to have ONE spot where I can easily access them where ever or whatever machine I'm on...)

You could store copies on the server of one of your sites.

I could! Not a bad idea, actually. Zip the files and then just password protect the zip files, so if someone does stumble across it, they'll at least have to know or hack the zip file/password.

If you put DOSBox in the same locations on all machines and use the SHP installers the games should be portable as is. Just unzip on the destination machine and run it.

The Sierra collections on Steam are now the most complete it seems as they include both original and remake versions of each 1st chapter in each series.

:| I seriously do not want to purchase these again... Besides having the original media, then all the collections they've done, then on GoG.com... sheesh, to buy'em again on Steam for the "complete" parts... is... annoying. Just wish GoG would get with it. Especially since Steam has done it. I doubt there's any form of copyright (with another company kind of thing) is Steam was able to do it.

You could have gotten the Humble Sierra Bundle which includes King's Quest, Space Quest, Quest For Glory, Police Quest, Phantasmagoria, Gabriel Knight, Shiftlings, TimeShift, Caeser 3 & 4, Velocity 2X, and TOG's King's Quest Complete Collection (including epilogue chapter) for $20.

Was this around Christmas time? Because... I didn't, literally, have 20 bucks to spare. (Over ran the CC's shopping for the wife and friends...)

The Humble Sierra Bundle initially ran in August (I posted about it at the time), and there was a repeat of that same bundle in December. The Classic Sierra Steam bundle, which isn't quite the same as the Humble one but has a lot of overlap, was created in December, and it doesn't seem to have an expiration date.

Hah that's a good reason. :)

I had no idea that bundle existed. Nice. There's games there that weren't in the Humble Bundle that I can "complete my collection" with for $7.50 (CAD) down from $49.95. I love Steam. Thanks for that.
