Two Guys from Andromeda

The Two Guys from Andromeda were the authors of the Space Quest series, a popular series of Adventure games. The two guys consisted of Mark Crowe (who did most of the music and visual art in the early games) and Scott Murphy (who was the programmer and the beard-bearing member of the two).

The first four games in the series were designed by both Crowe and Murphy. After Space Quest 4, the team split up, and Space Quest 5 was designed solely by Mark Crowe. Space Quest 6 was designed by Josh Mandel (although later work on the project was done by Scott Murphy), making Mandel the "third guy from Andromeda".

There were also rumours of a self-proclaimed Gal from Andromeda, Leslie Balfour (aka. Apollonia Jones).

The Space Quest games were published by Sierra Online in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and used the same in-house game engine developed earlier for King's Quest.
