Sierra is a video game company founded by Ken and Roberta Williams.

The company built it's reputation as a company for excellent graphic adventures beginning in the early 1980s, and continued until it was purchased by Vivendi Universal in the late 1990's. Sierra now only exists as a label - as the entire Sierra staff was layed off and the Sierra building was closed. It is doubtful that Vivendi Universal will produce any more adventure games.

Sierra produced many adventures like the King's Quest series (up to King's Quest IV) with the AGI (Adventure Game Interpreter) engine.

Starting in 1988, adventure game development switched to the more versatile SCI (Sierra's Creative Interpreter) engine. ScummVM does not support these games.
