    The Space Quest Collection

    Are You Ready For Some Good Clean Fun?

    They call themselves the Two Guys from Andromeda. They're a duo of nicely dressed, neatly mohawked, large-snouted individuals who have brought subtle parody, outright satire, and several on-staff corporate attorneys to the formerly formal world of computer gaming. Boasting impressive resume entries such as "Dishwasher," "Singing Telegram Performer," and "Intergalactic Traveler," these Two Guys have taken computer gamers by storm with bold tales of lunar (loony?) piracy, brain-theft, and interstellar invasions of insurance salesmen who won't take "no" for an answer.
    Now the complete works of the Two Guys are available in just one box. From the original, incredibly funny Space Quest I: The Sarien Encounter, which broke the mold of adventure gaming forever, to the most recent Space Quest V: The Next Mutation, which seems to be growing a little mold of its own. Space Quest games have won every major award that the industry has to bestow. And more importantly, they've made the Two Guys a whole lot of buckazoids.
