The long-awaited Police Quest 1 is Sierra's trek into the brutal world of vice, drugs and homicide. An adult perspective on the life of a police officer, Police Quest deals not only with the glamorous "Dirty Harry" aspects of the profession, but also with its daily routines.
Designed by former California Highway Patrol Detective Jim Walls (retired after 15 years on the force), Police Quest is based on real police action from his own experiences.
Police Quest puts the player in the role of a police officer in a small middle-American town. The goal: to stop the flood of illegal drugs into the once crime-free community of Lytton.
Players will experience the daily trials and tribulations of a police officer as they handle traffic violations, attend briefings, and experience the frustration of bureaucratic red tape. They'll face life-threatening situations, where the lives of innocent people depend on their sound judgment and quick reflexes.
Police Quest is the most authentic graphic adventure game available for personal computers, a dramatic tale straight from today's headlines!
Players are required to follow police procedures during the course of the action, just as officers must follow them in the real world. A manual explaining police procedures for arrests and other situations is included with the game.
Police Quest is another in Sierra's bestselling collection of 3-D animated adventure games. The game features over 100 city streets and four highways, for some sizzling pursuits.
Insiders at Sierra predict that Police Quest will fall between the family-oriented King's Quest series and Space Quest series games, and the adult Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. President Ken Williams estimates, "Basically, if parents think a kid is old enough to watch television shows along the lines of Miami Vice, they will probably think this game is O.K. too."
Police Quest will be the first Sierra 3-D adventure to ship completely un-copyprotected. If the experiment is a success, not only will there be a sequel, but Sierra will consider removing the protection completely from existing and future 3-D animated adventure games.
