Music

Space Quest III has a large of assortment of music, composed by famed Supertramp drummer Bob Siebenberg, and this is his only video game soundtrack to date.

According to Bob, he was given a video player to see the game, and tried to write appropriate music for each. Sometimes, his music was approved and at other times rejected, and he would subsequently write new music to better fit the game.

According to Bob, the ending music was not written by him, but rather by Mark Seibert arranging several of the game's songs together. Bob was so impressed with Seibert's arrangements that he let him help him on his solo album.

The recordings were made using different in-game sound options marked by the following digits:
