Quest 3 Demos
Sierra 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.

Quest 3 Promo Video (ZIP
archive of 7.1 MB containing a QuickTime file.)
A 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.
