Troels Pleimert Posted September 24, 2014 Report Share Posted September 24, 2014 Don't get me wrong, I love the fan games. Pretty much all of them. I hear 4.5 is kind of odd, but I haven't played it, so I wouldn't know. Anyway, that's not the point. But we were getting a little sidetracked in one of the other topics over at StarCon Academy, the one about what time period SQ takes place in, when I started talking about a little odd thing I noticed in SQ-1: Decision of the Elders. So I thought this could be a fun time to ask about some of the things in the fan games that made me go "huh?", and if we can somehow concoct a good reason/explanation for it being there. The thing in DotE was that someone in the game mentions that the game takes place on "Earth." Uh, does that mean Julia and Jerry went all the way to the Milky Way system and visited Earth to see if it was a suitable spot to hold their wedding? That's quite a long way to travel! The other thing was in Space Quest 0: Replicated when Roger visits Andromeda. Andromeda the planet. Now, I'm not good with astronomy and such, but I thought Andromeda was a galaxy, not a planet? Feel free to add more -- and believe me, this is in no way meant to take any of the fun out of playing the fan games. This is, really, just playful nitpicking. The two games I've just mentioned are great fun to play and I'm glad I finally got around to it. If you haven't, you should, too. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
