Quest 4 Cameo Appearances
security droids in the Super Computer look exactly like the Probots
(Imperial Probe Droids) in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
theme music from Quest for Glory is occasionally played in the Software
Excess-store in the Galaxy Galleria, made out to sound like internal
pc speaker. Also playing is the Space Quest theme, the King's Quest
theme and the Leisure Suit Larry theme.
Skywalker's little red speeder is disguised as the crashed skimmer
on Xenon at the beginning of the game.
Suit Larry is mentioned in the holographic recording in the Xenon
Graham makes a cameo appearance in the pterodactyl nest on Estros.
Just wait for a few seconds in the nest and you'll see something
very small streak across the sky. This is, in fact, King Graham
being carried by a condor (from King's Quest 1).
the Big & Tall store in the Galaxy Galleria, you can sometimes
find a guy near the bargain selection, rummaging around, occasionally
pulling out a pair of shorts with red dots. This is former Sierra
On-Line programmer, Bob Andrews. He himself explains: "Having
me show up is actually pretty simple. Go to Big & Tall after
clearing out the ATM and changing back to your Roger clothes, but
before buying the adapter plug from Radio Sho... er, Hz
So Good." On a side note, this only happens in the CD-ROM version
of Space Quest 4. Bob is also responsible for the CD-Rom-only ATM
machine image, and his cameo also has an appearance in Bruce Balfour's
Dagger of Amon Ra.
your visit to Ulence Flats, the Blues Brothers will appear on stage,
since they also appear in Space Quest 1.
owl from King's Quest 5, Cedric, appears in the Miss Astro Chicken
game in Buckazoid Bill's Arcade & Sushi Bar.
trash can in Buckazoid Bill's Arcade & Shushi Bar is actually
one of the agents from "Get Smart". Try talking to it,
you'll see what I mean. According to Scott Murphy, "This cameo
was conceived by programmer Jerry Shaw. He was in his Don Adams
period at that time."
