Space Quest 2 Remake

Infamous Adventures now offers their fan-created remake of Space Quest 2, which apparently was released for Windows and OS X a week ago. Since then the free game has been downloaded around 20,000 times, and a new patch is now available to update it to version 1.1. Word is: "This update fixes many of the bugs and issues people were having with the original release version. Perhaps the most significant update is that the game is now 32 bit instead of 16, which should address most video issues people were having with it." The patch is for Windows, and they also say they are working on an OS X patch.

Where did you install it to? I don't see any mention of it in the SQ2 forums on their site, so your issue may be unique. I'd shoot them a mail if I were you...

I installed the game to "\Program Files\Space Quest 2" rather than the default of "\Program Files\Infamous Adventures\Space Quest 2". Even though the installation directory is slightly different, it is still within the expected \Program Files directory, and the installer should record the installation directory.

I know that uninstallers will often remove 'shared' files that were added to other directories, but I could see the uninstaller deleting files that could not possibly be utilized by Space Quest 2, including Left 4 Dead 2 files, Visual Studio files, Adobe Creative Suite files, and others that I've forgotten in my panic.

I was hesitant to post the warning because, as you noted, it may be unique to my computer's configuration. However, the sheer number of "other" files that were deleted was enough to prompt my warning. Moreover, no casual game is worth the risk of corrupting applications like Visual Studio and Adobe Creative Suite. I will indeed send Infamous Adventures an email about my experience.
