A lot of classic Sierra adventure games got added to Steam today

King’s Quest is back, too

All throughout the ’80s and ’90s, Sierra Entertainment created some of the most revered adventure titles of all-time. Many of the studio’s games had a lasting and formative effect on the developers of today. To say that Sierra was influential would be to undersell it. Two years ago, the industry paid homage at the Video Game Awards by honoring Sierra co-founders Ken and Roberta Williams with the Industry Icon Award.

Anyone who missed out on some of these classics has an opportunity to right that wrong. Just today, a bunch of Sierra titles were added to Steam. Police Quest Collection, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father, Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within, Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned, Quest for Glory Collection, Phantasmagoria, and Phantasmagoria 2: A Puzzle of Flesh are now all available. Also, King’s Quest Collection is again up for purchase.

The video games machine has a tendency to be constantly forward-looking. We’re always concerned with what’s next. When something’s finally out, it’s old news. This is an instance where we’d do well to look backward for once. There’s a lot of history here.
