Space Quest in HD?

In Space No One Can Hear You Clean, er, Scream. But if you post in this forum about Space Quest - someone's sure to hear you. I think. Try it, anyway!

Space Quest in HD?

Post by MusicallyInspired » Sun May 31, 2020 9:41 am

Troels (aka the Space Quest Historian) did an interesting video recently about playing Space Quest in high resolution graphics. He referenced some of the ESRGAN upscales I did and also a little program I was working on to redraw AGI graphics in high resolution using the original draw commands (that's a chore and a half let me tell you!). He also featured PickleDog's research into the (now ancient and defunct) FreeSCI interpreter in Linux which was capable of drawing EGA SCI game backgrounds in higher resolution ON THE FLY. The results are pretty neat. Anyway, something of an interesting novelty that not many people have used or would have even seen (seeing as it was Linux-only).
