"This game was so damn addictive, that my friend Sarah and I left a New Year’s Eve party junior year of high school by faking she got her period so we could go home and play this until 3 in the morning."
Man, King’s Quest 1 is more depressing than I remembered.
"There’s not much I can say about King’s Quest. All I can say is that I’ve seen it, and it’s not a point-and-click game. But it looks *** awesome." - Activision’s MacLean Marshall.

not exactly what i had in mind (the available hairstyles do not let me give Rosella the glorious natural hair i wanted, nor were there any options for Graham’s adventurer’s hat or Alexander’s weird yellow scarf thing) but i was getting tired of having the idea in my head and not having any pictures to go with it
maybe i’ll do edgar next?
In development by the beloved and quirky studio The Odd Gentlemen (The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom), King’s Quest is a fully reimagined version of the fan-favorite Sierra game fit for both the old and new generation of King’s Quest players. Huge fans of the original King’s Quest series, The Odd Gentlemen are crafting a charming new adventure with an awe-inspiring art style, engaging puzzles, and a wondrous interactive narrative brimming with humor. In the new story, King Graham– revered as the greatest adventurer to ever live – shares his life’s adventures with his curious granddaughter, Gwendolyn. It is through these tales that Gwendolyn discovers the true greatness of her grandfather. King’s Quest is expected to make its heralded return in 2015. [FULL PRESS RELEASE]
IN THE WORDS OF COLIN FARWALKER, COULD IT REALLY BE?!?!
Thursday night, without warning, the Sierra website stopped merely redirecting to Activision’s page and took on a life of its own. All we have is this brief teaser video (below) and the promise of more info at next week’s Gamescom conference in Cologne, Germany.
Is Activision remaking a classic Sierra game? Or maybe rebooting an old franchise? Or is Activision simply bringing back one of Sierra’s publishing endeavors—say, Crash Bandicoot?
