I loved the king's quest series.

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.

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