IBM EGA version of Space Quest
In Space Quest players control the games hero, Roger Wilco (Actually, in this game players can provide their own name, however Roger Wilco is the default; later in the series Roger Wilco became the character's official name). Roger is the janitor on board the spaceship Arcada and at the beginning of the game is sleeping in the broom closet. He is awoken by a noise, and emerges from the closet to find that the ship has been boarded by the Sariens. The Sariens have already killed the crew and stolen the Star Generator (a powerful device that was being researched by Arcada’s crew). Roger is able to find an escape pod on the ship and crash land on the desolate, desert planet Kerona. After making his way through a series of paths and underground caves, Roger arrives at the small town of Ulence Flats. Here he learns of the location of the Deltaur, the Sariens spaceship where they have taken the Star Generator. Roger is able to leave the planet Kerona by purchasing a spaceship and travels to the Deltaur; once aboard, he sneaks past Sarien security by disguising himself and programs the Star Generator to self destruct. Once the Deltaur is destroyed, Roger receives the Golden Mop as a reward for his efforts.
Space Quest was remade in 1991 under the title Space Quest I: Roger Wilco in the Sarien Encounter. The remake featured enhanced music and digitized sound effects, new graphics in a 1950’s retrofuturistic style, and a point-n-click interface instead of typed commands. The game’s story and many of the puzzles remain largely the same.
