AGD Interactive released the final remake of King's Quest 2 in 2003, the same year that they put the finishing touches to King's Quest 1. The game continues the story of Graham, who has fulfilled the quest given to him by the late King Edward and has been crowned king of Daventry. There is, however, one thing missing â?¦ a wife with whom to share his life. King Graham has looked everywhere for the perfect spouse, but so far he has not found his true love.
Then, one fateful day, his magic mirror tells him of a lady trapped in another dimension. King Graham falls instantly in love with the fair maiden and trades his crown for his old adventure hat. It's time for another daring adventure. Once again Graham will travel the land in search of artefacts or people that can help him in his valiant quest. He needs to collect three stones in order to open a magical door and free his wife-to-be.
This game is a remake of the original release by Sierra back in 1985, and it improves every aspect of the game. AGD even made small changes to the plot, making a more epic story. For instance, the door has a history of its own. Of course the graphics and music have been enhanced as well. Once again, you must download the game in order to believe the difference.
Just a final note: the original game was called King's Quest 2 - Romancing the Throne, but AGD Interactive chose to call their remake King's Quest 2 - Romancing the Stones.
