I found my way here from the Sierra Chest Facebook group.

It wasn’t until last year that I ‘discovered’ Sierra and the joys of 90’s adventure games in general. I joined up here because I’ve had a hard time finding places where people still discuss these games – so many of the old forums and websites are dead links now. Hopefully I’ll have something more to contribute, eventually.

Hi, Quelea. Welcome! :D
It will be nice to hear the thoughts and feelings of Sierra's 'new blood'.

I count as "new blood" as well. Though I mentioned this years ago.

Yeah, but your avatar (Cedric) does not look too young, does it?  :P

The attached image is the hidden 'Cedric Suffer' from Episode 4. It reminds me somebody around here.  ::)

Yep, couldn't agree more.

Strangely, I first encountered the King's Quest and Gabriel Knight games from hearing other people mock them ("Cedric is annoying! Cat hair mustache!", ect.) But instead of nodding along with them, I ended up becoming interested in learning more about these games and eventually came to enjoy them, including the weird quirks.

I was fortunate to grab up Moebius and Gabriel Knight 20th on GOG yesterday for $3.79 and $6.29 respectively. I haven't played the GK remake and know absolutely nothing about Moebius (except who made it :)) so I am looking forward to checking those out in the weeks and months ahead.

I played GK1-remake last year (2015), and Moebius in March (2016). If you want anything about them, I am around here.
