Welcome to AstroChickenWeb, a web site dedicated to Astro Chicken and the AstroChicken games.

Who is Astro Chicken?
Astro Chicken is a chicken who appeared in his own arcade game in Monolith Burger, in Space Quest 3: The Pirates of Pestulon.

Who actually made Astro Chicken?
Doug Olfield was the actual creator of Astro Chicken... it was originally called Chicken Lander, and when they needed an arcade sequence for Space Quest 3, they used it, changing it into Astro Chicken.
All hail Doug Olfield! :)

Are there any other Astro Chickens?
Yes.

Ok... Who are they?
Actually, there's only one other AstroChicken, and that's Ms. AstroChicken, who appeared in her own arcade game at Buckazoid Bills, in the Galaxy Galleria, in Space Quest 4: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers.

Is there anywhere where I can get the AstroChicken or Ms. AstroChicken games?
Yep, you can get AstroChicken by either a) Buying Space Quest 3, b) Buying the Space Quest series (Roger Wilco Unclogged, or the Space Quest collection), c) Downloading it from Sierra's BBS (206-644-0112), or d) Downloading it from HERE.
You may not distribute this without Sierra Online's permission, which I have.

You can get Ms. AstroChicken by a) Buying Space Quest 4, b) Buying the Space Quest series (Roger Wilco Unclogged, or the Space Quest collection), c) Downloading it from Sierra's BBS (206-644-0112), d) Buying Nick's Picks: Roger Wilco's Spaced Out Game Pack., or e) Downloading it from HERE.
I don't think that you may distribute this without Sierra Online's permission, which I got anyway.

Are there any other AstroChicken games?
No... but Deep Freeze came up with a neat idea for one, and one of the newer SQ Webmasters is attempting to make it... visit ScumSoft HQ for details.

Anything else I can get that has to do with AstroChicken?
Yes there is, and to see what that is, go here.

Do AstroChicken or Ms. AstroChicken appear anywhere else?
Yes. Further AstroChicken games have been mentioned within the Space Quest series, Astro Chicken is hidden in a locker in the SCS Eureka in Space Quest 5: The Next Mutation (Note: There is some dispute on this, and it is believed that it might just be a chicken with the Astro Chicken theme music playing), and Astro Chicken also appears in Jones in the Fast Lane on the menu at Monolith Burger.
