Space Quest Logos Custom Wallpaper (1080p/1440p/4k)

Postby MusicallyInspired » 2018-5-29 @ 20:02

Over the past few months I've been working on (up to 4k resolution) desktop wallpaper designs of the various Space Quest logos because I love Space Quest, I love its art direction, and I love that font especially with the perspective slant. But SQ1's red and blue logo is the best logo of the entire series.

I've been posting them around on various Sierra GB groups and Twitter but thought some of you might be interested here as well. You can find them all on my DeviantArt site. Each of these designs have a few variations and all of them are in 1080p, 1440p, and 4k.

Space Quest II Logo (10 variations)

Space Quest III In-Game Logo (6 variations)

Space Quest III Box Logo (Updated!)

After making these someone requested one that resembled the SQ3 manual cover. It wasn't much extra work so I threw it together.

Thanks for the kind words. :) Next up is Space Quest IV. I stuck with the VGA version logo. Obviously a wallpaper can't have cycling palette colours but man wouldn't that be amazing in 4k? I also have a variation with the classic Space Quest font. Available in 4k/1440p/1080p as usual.

If they're simple enough to be within my skillset. Someone requested elsewhere for the first few Zork game boxes. But they're too detailed for me. I'd like to do a King's Quest one. Not sure I could do it but the attempt would be illuminating and fun.

I updated the SQ3 Box Logo wallpaper to more accurately represent the source. The motion trails were bothering me and I found a better way to do them. Also added a soft glow around the lettering. If you already downloaded that one please redownload it!

I've finally finished Space Quest V's 4k wallpaper and I'm quite happy with the results. Took a while to get the shine-through effect just right. Comes with and without the comet and both come in 4k, 1440p, and 1080p resolutions.

With Windows 10 you can have Live Wallpapers.. so, yes you can:

Stardock even has a program that will work all the way back to Windows 7:

Cool project BTW.

I can just see the marketing heads at MS shooting down the working title - "Active Desktop for Windows 10".

In fact, if you write a Java Applet (remember those?) you could do that in Windows 98. ;)

I recall a program that worked with Windows 98 called Dremples Desktop and it rendered an animated background of warping and shifting colours. It was pretty nice at the time.

Yeah, I guess Win10 does have live wallpaper. I wouldn't know where to begin to create one, though. Guess I'll look into it at some point.
