Some might remember that I blogged about this, or perhaps played this game over a year ago: Server Quest
Well, the saga continues. Server Quest II is launched and ready for play.
Those of us who spent too many hours playing cheesy pixilated adventure games** about 15-20 years ago will appreciate the awesome reproduction in the form of this cute online game.
“Just when you thought your eyes had finally healed from years of straining to make out pixelated adventure game graphics, Server Quest rolls into your browser like an avalanche of early nineties gaming action. This April, prepare to be ushered into a world where the IT pro rules. As an IT Pro you’ll have to dig deep into your surroundings, solve puzzles, and uncover Easter Eggs and mini games that will help you inch your way closer to the prize—and closer to carving your name into the annals of geekdom.”
In this episode, you can take on the role of either Matt or Alicia, and choose what your area of expertise will be. Are you a “Server God”? A “Desktop Whiz” An “IT Commando”?
And an interesting note: This is the first version done entirely in Silverlight.
** “Hey Kevin – By ‘cheezy pixilated adventure games’, you’re talking about all that time you wasted playing ‘Leisure Suit Larry‘, right?”
