King’s Quest: Chapter 1 Launch Trailer — Any hungry lions?

By | July 29, 2015

I finished King’s Quest 2 in one sitting. Seriously. Not because it’s an easy game, but because I couldn’t save my progress. Something with my copy of the game that prevented me from saving. I was 12 years old and I was up until 4 in the morning. I got stuck in the tower, didn’t know how to pass the lion. I believe the command was something like, “Give meat to lion”.

Give the lion some meat, and he'll give you passage

The new King’s Quest is all about nostalgia for me, though quite different. Chapter 1 is out and here’s the trailer for it:

Sierra used to be the king of the adventure-game hill. They essentially took the same model and replicated it into several King’s Quests, Police Quests, Space Quests, and a series about some guy in a white suit.

I’m glad they’re back with King’s Quest, but I do wish it maintained more of that same adventure gameplay rather than focusing on puzzles. In any case, King’s Quest is back and so is Sierra and hope others as well.
