Police Quest: In Persuit of the Death Angel VGA (aka Police Quest 1 VGA) was a 1992 remake of the original Police Quest I.
It updated the graphics and setting to VGA and was a retelling of the story in a more contemporary setting. It updated the series setting from mid-late 80s to a 1990s culture. Several elements were changed, the town of Lytton was transformed into a big city (similar to the growing city of PQ3, and more akin to Los Angeles), some characters were removed, others had their genders changed.
Thus its more of a reboot than an actual part of the original continuity.
