GDC 2015: King’s Quest Preview – A New Fairy Tale

I remember the original.


Interested to see how the franchise translates since it has been so long since the original.

I loved the king's quest series.

also, space quest was hilarious, and police quest was also very fun.

I'm an old school King Quest guy. I remember playing this game before they implemented the point and click interface. The first few games you had to type out every action. And lord forbid you didn't know how to spell something or typed something wrong.

Same with Space Quest, Police Quest and Leisure Suit Larry.

Here's hoping this game does well because I would love for Space Quest to be the next game to return.

I'll really have to keep an eye out for this one.

King's Quest more or less set the standard by which all other adventure games are measured.
