Space Quest 3 Demos
Kid playing Space Quest 3 The Pirates of PestulonSierra never released a (non) playable demo for Space Quest 3 in the form of a DOS program. Well, not about the actual game anyway. They did release a stand-alone version of the popular Astro Chicken arcade game. Anyway, to promote their hottest new games, Sierra released promotional VHS videos, which were distributed all over the country. Space Quest 3 was one two different tapes, namely the 1988 issue and the 1989-1990 issue. The material is extremely funny and may be hazardous to those who have heart problems or suffer from chronic depressions.

Space Quest 3 Promo Video (ZIP archive of 7.1 MB containing a QuickTime file.)
Space Quest 3 Promo VideoA cool presentation of Space Quest 3, featuring the real Two Guys from Andromeda. This is a digitalized excerpt of the Sierra On-Line Video Catalog VHS tape from 1988. The promotial video shows the Two Guys battling their ways through the old Sierra offices and end up captured in a Scumsoft basement playing the all-new Chicken Quest. A funfact: the animations you see from the game are from a very early beta version; the game was far from complete when the promo movie was released. Evidence of this is found throughout the video.
