Good to Go!

Posted By: Site Admin at September 18th, 2013, 12:34:59 PDT

Thank you everyone for giving us the time we needed to get the site back to working form. It took a little longer than expected, but everything is back in working order. Some changes were made that will help us keep the site up for a long time to come.

Thanks for making us the go-to site for classic Sierra On-Line and LucasArts games.

Cheers, Faeran

Issue with our download links

Posted By: Site Admin at August 31st, 2013, 11:37:59 PDT

We are aware of the issue that is affecting our download links. We are hard at work building a long term solution and everything should be operational within a few days.

An update will be posted when things have returned to normal. We thank you for your patience.

Long standing maintenance

Posted By: Site Admin at May 30th, 2013, 18:05:51 PDT

I've been spending time updating some of the content here on the site and I thought I'd let you guys know what has been going on.

I've decided to drop rapid share, as changes from their end has caused issues for you guys. A lot of changes have been made, so if you do find an error, please send us an email. I also found that The Time Warp of Dr. Brain download link directed you guys to the wrong place. This has been fixed. I have also added a bunch of new extras, including some goodies from the Leisure Suit Larry 1 VGA Remake game box. So have a look around, and enjoy a blast from your past.

I will also be looking at getting completely rid of some of the third party dependency sites in the near future, allowing the site to become much more of an independent entity.

Cheers, Faeran

A Glorious Update

Posted By: Site Admin at December 10th, 2010, 06:34:59 PST

Christmas is nearing and I finally had long enough to sit down and make an update. This update is themed around the series Quest for Glory. What have I done exactly? First thing I did was finally added large screenshots to every Quest For Glory game. We are also now hosting high quality downloads of the manuals of every Quest For Glory game. On top of that, I have added downloads of the official hint books for the entire Quest For Glory Series. Go to each respective game pages and enjoy this Sierra goodness.

My Heart goes out to China

Another quick update. This time for all your Heart of China fans and Sierra collectors out there. I have added lots of goodies to the Heart of China game page, including a high quality Manual, a Hint Book, the Reference Card, and Travel Guide. Go to the Heart of China page to download them all.

Also, before I forget, a great community site has returned in DaFastLane. It's a great place to find news on the abandonware community.

Cheers, Faeran

Roger Wilco in a Graphic Novel?

Posted By: Site Admin at November 4th, 2010, 05:37:41 PDT

I've been doing a few things around the site, the major changes are as followed. In the Sierra (Sierra On-Line) section, the Space Quest game pages have lots of goodies added to their sections. We are now hosting all of the game manuals, which you can download directly from our site. I've also added the official Hint Books for not only Space Quest 1, but Space Quest 2, Space Quest 3, Space Quest 4, AND Space Quest 5. Wait, that's not it! Did you know Roger Wilco starred in his own Space Quest Comic Book back in the early ninties? Well if you did not know, and you are a fan, you can now download all three Graphic Novels entitled: The Adventures of Roger Wilco. You can find them on any of the Space Quest game pages for download. If you have fond memories of throwing Roger off a cliff (like me!) then you will want to free up some time, download the Graphic Novels and read through them.

Cheers, Faeran

Rise of the Update

Posted By: Site Admin at November 1st, 2010, 05:38:34 PDT

Just a quick one today before I start my work day. I've made some updates to the Rise of the Dragon game page. For those who don't know what this game is, it was developed by Dynamix and published by Sierra On-Line. We are now hosting the manual for this game, and we also added download links to the Official Hint Book, as well as the Rise of the Dragon Graphic Novel. Go download the game and all its extra resources on the Rise of the Dragon game page. If you are really a collector we also have the EGA version of Rise of the Dragon. Enjoy guys. I'm off to upload myself to a day of work.

Cheers, Faeran

Mega download change: Sierra and LucasArts

Posted By: Site Admin at October 13th, 2010, 12:46:23 PDT

So I've been hard at work making some major changes with the downloads. I recently announced that all small games (games under 30 MB) are now being hosted right on the site, but now I'm announcing that all our larger games which used to be hosted by Rapidshare are now being hosted by Mega Upload. This change happened because of many reasons, the main one being the fact that Mega Upload offers a much better free user experience (no more waiting 80 minutes in-between downloads). This has been changed for every larger game including the likes of Torin's Passage, Willy Beamish CD Version, Afterlife and many more.

A new game has also been brought back to the site, this time in its 2 disc entirety. Go play all the gun-slinging action in the wild west with the game Outlaws. Download now.

Five new questions have been added to our Trivia Challenge. The total number of questions has raised to 70. A great fun trivia game you can play while your going through your work day (I won't tell your boss). You may learn something too!

So now that every download link has been altered in some way in the past week or so, there may be bugs that have cropped up. If you do notice anything out of place, please let us know via our contact form and we'll fix it right up.

Free up some time, browse our site and download some of the greats of the past we love to remember.

Cheers, Faeran
