Younger gamers who grew up in the 2000s probably don’t remember the now defunct PC publisher Sierra Entertainment, but back in the 80s and 90s the studio worked with indie developers (before the term “indie developer” was more widely used) to create some of the most beloved games of that generation. Now, you can relive the glory of several of these games (or experience it for the first time) thanks to Valve’s Steam service.

According to a new update on the Steam website, there are 10 classic Sierra games being offered in total, encompassing a wide range of genres including adventure titles, strategy games, RPGs, and more. The full list of included games is as follows:

  • Police Quest Collection
  • Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers
  • Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within
  • Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned
  • Arcanum - Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura
  • Quest for Glory Collection
  • Phantasmagoria
  • Phantasmagoria 2
  • Caesar 3
  • Caesar 4

The games range in price from $5.99 to $9.99, which means you can add your favorites to your Steam library without breaking the bank. Sadly, none of the games appear to have Steam-integrated features like controller support, Steam Achievements, or Steam Trading Cards, but if you’re looking for a guaranteed way to play them on your newer computer, Valve has you covered.
