are extremely hip things, especially around our Space Quest Universe.
Many over-enthusiastic fans started their own project without really
knowing what it takes to produce a full length adventure game. So
naturally, without good planning and without decent concept plans,
most fanprojects were doomed even before they were announced. And
let's be honest to each other. It truly takes a bit more than just
being fan of the series to create a game of your own. The
Space Quest Fangames website used to show an interesting retrospective,
if you will, about the fangame craze that swept the community for
some time. I guess you could safely say that for every finished
fangame, 20 or 30 get cancelled.
if it weren't for the fanprojects, the Space Quest Community would
have died out a long time ago. The prospect of cool fanmade games
kept many fans at bay. And as things turned out, the two fanprojects
that actually released a game got praise from thousands of people
outside the community! Slashdot
ran articles about them, and large abandonware websites took the
games in for download. Fangames and retro gaming aren't just a buzz
around the Space Quest Community.
can discuss and critize the games for the many typos, plot inconsistencies,
their bugs, weak (or "borrowed") graphics, weak plot,
weak character design and for using cliche after cliche. None the
less, the games stand out. They are truly amazing additions to the
community and have enriched the Space Quest Universe.

before-unknown-sequel in the Space Quest Saga begins with Roger
Wilco, still floating around aimlessly in space after defeating
Vohaul in SQ2. After who-knows-how-long drifting in space, a strange
force slams into Roger’s escape vessel which causes it to
travel close to an unknown planet. Right after passing the planet,
the escape pod is trapped by the planet’s gravitational pull
and starts a rapidly descent to the planet’s surface. The
escape pod crash-lands but is relatively undamaged. The crash has
trigged the release of the sleepchamber in which Roger is snoozing
away. He soon wakes up, to find himself still inside the escape
pod, and quite blonde too! Roger soon starts to survey his surroundings,
finding that he has crashed onto a heavily vegetated planet. Here,
the adventure starts.
As opposed to "cancelled fangames", these are fangames that either have not been finished yet (but are still in development), demos of an upcoming finished product, or just a demo that was never meant to be finished and just made for the art and fun of it.

"A fan art Unreal 4 project. Another game that made an impact on me as a kid.. I also wanted to explore a little more cartoony style and colorful palette. As close the the (let´s say "striking") original EGA palette I could. I feel the direction I went with would fit really well for a modern version of SQ3. I focused mostly on the env art, and exporing Unreal 4, learning how to put things together by just using Blueprints. I only wanted to cover the first area, with just a little interactivity, and of course, a few deaths. (hint: There are two.)" -Kjell Emanuelsson
