I'm finally getting all my Sierra collections together again and I'm missing the first two releases of King's Quest I VGA by (then named) Tierra. I have Versions 1, 2, and 3 of KQ2VGA and Versions 3 and 4 of KQ1VGA (along with the old speech and music packs!) but not Versions 1 and 2. If anybody still has them somewhere I'd be obliged if you could provide them to me. Merely for sentimental and collector's reasons.

Note: I'm looking for the install files.

Here's KQ1VGA v2.0.

I don't know if I have v1.0 stored anywhere anymore.

This is funny. I thought I was the only one collecting all the different versions. Anyways, I have KQ2VGA v1.1 if you are interested.

Hey, sorry for the bump but I found a copy of KQ1VGA 1.0 and wanted to post it here just in case anybody’s still interested. This version is kind of important as it was AGDI’s first ever release. And it looked so good back in 2001 when it first came out, but playing through it again, I couldn’t believe how crude it looks compared to the latest releases. It is amazing how far you guys have come in the past decade. ;)

Hey, thanks for uploading this! I don't think I had a copy of it anywhere.

Funnily enough, the game was such a breath of fresh air for the Sierra community back in 2001 that it received very little criticism. It's funny to think that as the games have increased in quality over the years, they've actually been placed under higher scrutiny and receive a higher level of mixed feedback in return. Interesting stuff!

If you ask me this all makes perfect sense as AGDI is no longer a team of amateurs who have just released their first remake at a time when nobody else is making remakes and there are no standards of comparison. After completing several awesome games and even remaking your own early releases, people start to hold you to higher standards and expect only the best from you. And I think that's a good thing (at least for the fans it is :lol ). Anyway, I think your first game was ground-breaking when it came out and is still the best of its kind after a decade, thanks to all the updates you've done.
