ServerQuest – Dilbert meets Space Quest

ServerQuestIts like Dilbert meets the good old quest games from Sierra Online. Yeah I’m talking about the hugely popular Police Quest, Kings Quest and Space Quest series from what was it, the late 1980s?

Blue MonsterWell it looks like somebody at Microsoft liked them as much as I did. They have created their very own quest game, in Flash. Its called Microsoft TechNet ServerQuest and its all about the life of a server techie named Matt and is set in a typical IT department. One of the cool things about it are the web tie-ins where you need to lookup web articles to get clues to complete the quests.

A rather cool surprise was the appearance of the Blue Monster, the new Microsoft staff mascot.

Do yourself a favour and spend some time playing it, its quite fun.
