Sierra Games is heralded as one of the premiere adventure game developers and publishers that existed. Deep care went into the development of the games they created, thanks to a husband and wife creative partnership between Ken and Roberta Williams. Together, they formed Sierra Games, a developer and publisher which created some of the most memorable adventure games ever made. But what about the soundtracks to these sprawling titles? Today on XVGM Radio, Justin and Mike are joined by fellow podcaster and long time personal friend, Brian Siecienski,who is part of the Pixel Stories Podcast. Together, these three share personal stories about their nostalgic experiences with Sierra Games and the soundtracks from the past, all while covering a good chunk of Sierra Games’ legacy.
