  1. Mr Wilco, set course for Planet Sierra!

    Fresno, California, April 2015 - You loved Police Quest, Space Quest, Quest for Glory and other classic Sierra games of the 80s and 90s? The good news is that they will be brought back to life as a result of a partnership between the Sierra Classics Heritage Fund and the Swedish game developer MindArk.

    The classic environments of these games, their remarkable characters and their elaborated puzzles will be launched on a planet inside of Entropia Universe, the multi-gaming platform that MindArk develops and operates. The name of the planet will be... Planet Sierra!. There you'll be able to meet Roger Wilco, King Graham, and last but not least Larry.

    "I always loved Leisure Suit Larry, it's certainly the video game character I sympathize with the most", says David Simmonds, MindArk's Chief Partnership Officer. "The Larry environment will be a great addition to Entropia Universe and I hope to make it a 'matter of the boss' if I find the time between managing all the other exciting upcoming partnerships.

    Creating your own avatar inside Entropia Universe you can join the inhabitants of Planet Sierra in old and new adventures. You'll be able to operate vehicles, hunt, mine and craft and to tame wild animals. You can even own your plot of land on Planet Sierra and influence its future through an elaborated citizenship political system.

    "We always wanted to preserve the look and feel of our old classic adventures, that's the main purpose of our foundation", says Roberta Williams of the Sierra Classics Heritage Fund. "Nowadays we are simply too busy with the reboot of King's Quest to look into the task ourselves, so we are happy that MindArk will take care of our classics and will bring them back to life. Future is brighter than ever for Planet Sierra."

    Plant Sierra is scheduled for release in Fall 2015. Regular updates will be available from the upcoming website: http://www.planetsierra.com

    Big question is, how much of this is actually true ?
     
  14. Take the red pill ?
     
  15. And this is what started Planet Sierra, their latest server acquisition situated somewhere unknown. Notice how it's portable so they can do a quick get away in case they're raided again at the behest of M$.

  20. Too true. On a similar note, my nephew in his 16th year can't get used to my desktop/tower pc and it's not that old, to me anyway.
