Last week we were all teased with a Sierra logo that hinted that the company may be coming back from the dead, and now we have the confirmation that it is all true.
The original founder of the company, Ken Williams, said the following:
“We’re very proud of what we created all those years ago with Sierra Online, and today’s news about carrying Sierra forward as an indie-specific brand is very encouraging.”
He goes on to mention their immediate game plans:
“We look forward to seeing Sierra’s independent spirit live on, and are especially excited to see what The Odd Gentlemen will do with King’s Quest.”
Sierra was a classic gaming company in the late 80’s and early 90’s, so seeing that kind of retro spirit back in the current gaming world will be great. I love the fact that they are focusing on indie developers to bring more attention to those more unique titles, while also re-imagining some of their past classics with current hardware.
