  1. Thank you Tawmis for your detailed response. It helps a lot.
  2. I will definitely keep you guys posted. And thank you guys for all the input and the amazing vibe.
  3. Hi Troels, The research is a PhD thesis which hopefully turns into a book someday. Thank you for a very detailed response. It's amazing what impact SQ has had on you guys. I have been talking to different games' fans and this is the first time that I feel I'm missing out. Now I can't forgive myself if I don't start playing the series. Label me a fan.
  4. Thank you so much for such a comprehensive response. It is really inspiring to see people like you striving to keep your passion alive. Sorry to hear that the forum is "dead", now. I wasn't planning on playing the series, but now that I have heard so much, I have to play it.
  5. Not sure what a bot a bot creator can do with these information. What I meant by modable is in fact modifiable. That doesn't mean a huge conversion of the game engine, minor mods would count. For example I am aware that someone made a version of Space Quest 2 where Roger's head was replaced with a giant eyeball. That's a mod. And by community, well I'm not sure how to explain that as the word is fairly self-explanatory. A game having a fan community has no relation to how it is played or whether it is a single or multiplayer game. This whole website is a community of SQ players, is it not?
  6. Hi all, I am media researcher and am currently focusing on fandom. Somehow I became most interested in SQ. I hope it is OK if I ask a few questions here: 1. What has been the main activities of Space Quest fans? (Fan fictions? forum discussions? things like this) 2. Which game in the Space Quest series has the most dedicated fans? 3. What do you think are reasons for Space Quest's long lasting appeal? (besides the aesthetics and narrative) 4. Was the story of the games affected in any way by how you play the game? 5. Does the game include a lot of customizations? Did it have a modding community? 6. Does it have a community of gamers who still play the game? 7. Since when the community began shrinking and becoming inactive? Thank you all in advance for your help.
