Sierra AGI Demos refer to five different non-playable demonstration programs created by Sierra On-Line and released from 1987-1988 to advertise their games. Each demo is made using Sierra's Adventure Game Interpreter, however, not all of the games showcased actually use AGI.

Sierra did not give unique titles to their demos, but I did my best to recreate the order in which Sierra released the demos. I used a combination of the date stamp of the files in the archives, which games are included in the demos, and the quality of the demo engine, but I may have some in the wrong order.

Demos

# Date Stamp Games Notes Screenshot
1 1987-05-20 This demo is often labels as number 5, but it has the oldest date stamp, includes the earliest Sierra games, and uses the most primitive menu, so I'm pretty confident it was the very first AGI demo. Sierra AGI Demo 1 - Screenshot - Menu.png
2 1988-01-25 This demo is often labels as number 3, but its date stamp places it at number 4, however, I believe it was actually the second AGI demo. it has the oldest date stamp, includes the earliest Sierra games, and uses the most primitive menu, so I'm pretty confident it was the very first AGI demo.
