I did these upscales of Love For Sail a while back. The graphical style it has scales up relatively nicely.
Love For Sail was done in 640x480 resolution, so there's enough original information in the scenes for a pretty crisp upscale result. The images would probably look even better if you'd extract the backgrounds from the game for upscaling.

The scaled resolution of the backgrounds is 2560x1920.

I also upscaled the (in)famous Larry's drug trip cinematic from 320x240 to 1280x960. Sadly enough, the original cinematic does have quite a bit of compression artefacts, so it had lost quite a bit of detail. The upscale is pretty decent though.

Here's a link to my blog from where you can see the upscales:

That's quite impressive, looks very good.

At first I thought you can actually play whole game in such quality.

Sadly not yet. There is a ScummVM port that allows the use of high-resolution art in Sierra SCI games (up to 4x the original resolution), but Love For Sail is not yet among the supported titles. I actually did a small test with Dagger of Amon Ra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgsvFsTugnU&t=3s&ab_channel=TheTomimt

And here's a test for an upscaled version of Colone's Bequest. The upscaling doesn't really do the original EGA art justice, as none of the ESRGAN models I found couldn't really fully comprehend the rasterized palettes, so the end result here is far from being good. It would either take a specially trained ESRGAN model or redrawing all the backgrounds by hand.

Amazing! I'd love to play the whole game like this. Any luck with a mod or something?

Not yet, sadly enough.

But are there any chances for a mod? ;)

Well, don't hold your breath for it.
