Today I stumbled on exactly that. "What?" you say...I said just that when i heard it but when you actually experience everything becomes clear. Let me just say that it is super cool albeit somewhat odd. Martin Kool created sarien.net a multiplayer web based version of classic sierra games that you play they way you used to but with the added experience of hundred other players walking around and doing the same things you are doing.
I started out with Larry. The game was exactly the same with the original version that you typed the commands. It was pretty surrealistic though to walk among other ten Larries, that you could talk too as well. The most fun , I have to say, was checking what the other players were trying with the game. This was incredibly fun and it could bring more people to play these classic gems. Being able to talk to other players wherever you want means that you can ask people for help as well if you are stuck. This was a very unique experience.
Up until now 6 games are supported:
- King's Quest: Quest for the Crown
- Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards
- Police Quest: In Pursuit of the Death Angel
- Space Quest I: The Sarien Encounter
- Space Quest II: Vohaul's Revenge
- The Black Cauldron
