This is a version of the original game that is pre-packaged with everything required to run the game under a modern operating system, sold by GOG without DRM (digital rights management). At the
time of writing, GOG only sell this particular game as a part of a three-game bundle (though the game is installed separately to the other two games), however this may or may not be different to other stores.
Everything; there do not appear to be any issues of note when playing this game.
What does not
What was not tested
The full game – only the first scene of the game was tested.
During installation, a menu item / launcher was not created and as best I can tell, the GOG installer is to blame for this… You will need to manually create a menu item / launcher that points to "Launch Space Quest 1 - The Sarien Encounter.lnk", which is located within your (hidden) “wine” folder (usually found at Home->.wine).
