Continuing our look into Sierra On-Line’s video catalogs we find a tape that circulated between 1989 and 1990. It introduced customers to the then upcoming Space Quest II, Laura Bow: Colonel’s Bequest and even Quest For Glory (or rather, Hero’s Quest, before its name was changed).
The best part of these videos is watching Quest For Glory and Space Quest creators act out short segment promotional videos. These really are a testament to Sierra’s creativity and love of their craft.

Winona Ryder in high school
“I was wearing an old Salvation Army shop boy’s suit. As I went to the bathroom I heard people saying, ‘Hey, faggot’. They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the shit out of me. I had to have stitches. The school kicked me out, not the bullies.
“Years later, I went to a coffee shop and I ran into one of the girls who’d kicked me, and she said, ‘Winona, Winona, can I have your autograph?’ And I said, ‘Do you remember me? Remember in seventh grade you beat up that kid?’ And she said, ‘Kind of’. And I said, ‘That was me. Go fuck yourself.’”
