In the fictional storyline of SQ III, the Two Guys from Andromeda were enslaved by ScumSoft. ScumSoft, in the game, is an evil software company, but also the Lucas Arts adventure games (the engine was called SCUMM).

Space Quest III featured music composed by Supertramp drummer Bob Siebenberg, and was one of the first games to support the new SoundBlaster sound card. PC versions of the game now supported mouse movement and a new, heavily improved text parser.

Space Quest III also featured a minigame called Astro Chicken, which was not necessary to complete the game, but getting a high score revealed a hidden distress message that the Two Guys had programmed in.
