In case you needed an excuse to revisit Sierra On-Line's Space Quest III, we've got the perfect thing. Recently a group of fan developers has remade the classic 1989 graphic adventure, giving the game a full 3D makeover complete with voice acting.

Space Quest 3D (as the project is called) is the work of Australian company TurboChimp, who previously released the sci-fi action comedy adventure Mercury Blue. It features voice acting from the actor Mike Holmes, as well as a redone soundtrack from the Space Quest YouTuber Space Quest Historian and J.P. Sapsford.

If you've never had the opportunity to check out Space Quest before, it is a series of games following the exploits of janitor Roger Wilco who repeatedly ends up in increasingly dangerous and potentially universe-saving situations.

The first game was released back in 1986 and was ported across a number of early home computers. It later went on to spawn five sequels as well as a spiritual successor named SpaceVenture from its lead designers Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy (AKA the "Two Guys From Andromeda").

Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon — the third game in the series — sees Wilco facing off against an evil corporation named Scumsoft, and its disreputable CEO Elmo Pug, who has kidnapped a fictional version of the Two Guys From Andromeda and are forcing them to make terrible games. The intergalactic garbageman must this time put a stop to the company's evil plans, using his wits and whatever he can pick up to best the video game company.
