Quest 1 Cancelled Stuff
a cool tool called AGI
Studio I opened up Space Quest 1 version 1.0X (version 2.2 didn't
work with the program for some reason). AGI Studio enables you to
look around in the game source code, animations and other graphics.
I found some stuff that shouldn't be there - stuff that isn't used
in the actual game. Leftovers from early puzzles, jokes or animations
that didn't make it into the final version of the game.
To your left
you see the original six frame animation that make up the unfortunate
end of Orat's life. If I recall correctly, frame one and two aren't
used. You need to THROW the dehydrated water to Orat and he'll catch
it with his mouth. The first frame obviously shows Orat HOLDING
the canister of dehydrated water. This means Roger didn't need to
THROW the canister but GIVE it to him or DROP it for him in an early
unreleased version. Orat was obviously not mean enough this way,
so instead the Two Guys changed the puzzle. The official animation
is still there, however unused.
