Game Similarities

If you have played a good number of Sierra’s adventure games, you may have noticed some striking parallels between one game and another. In any case, some Sierra gaming researchers in Manannan’s laboratory have been doing case studies of various games and charting all noteworthy similarities.


Their findings are, to say the least, quite shocking! See what we mean by clicking on one of the links below … Note that some information on these pages may spoil certain parts of the game for you if you have not completed or played it yet.

Case Study 1 – Phantasmagoria And Laura Bow 1
Case Study 2 – King’s Quest 5 And The Wizard And The Princess

I would love feedback on any of these case studies. Please send in your comments, views, opinions, more similarities, etc. about anything you find here.
