Some of you gamers out there might look at the name of the producer and think, "Nah, King's Quest was made by Sierra - everyone knows that!" â?Š True, but they never made a VGA remake of the game. That was made by AGD Interactive, a company made up of fans of the quest genre. And thus the greatest adventure saga of all time has been reborn.
King's Quest: Quest for The Crown takes place in the land of Daventry, where you (Sir Graham) are called before the good King Edward. You are sent on a daring adventure to claim three magical artefacts and give them to King Edward, to prove yourself worthy to become the next king. Along the way you must complete myriad side-quests in order to progress through the game. The story might seem simple enough, but do not be fooled. King's Quest is a very difficult game to play, but as soon as you pick up the basics you are on your way to completing the grandfather of many adventure games.
No one could guess the impact this little game would have on the gaming population of the world, but soon it was evident that a sequel had to be made â?Š and so the epic tales of Sir Graham of Daventry had begun!
The VGA update available on this site is simply marvellous! Words can not even begin to describe the differences in gameplay, graphics, and music. The latter must be heard in order to be believed. This game deserves a place on every computer out there!
Update: January 2009
The game has been revamped to include enhanced backgrounds and character portaits, optional 'No Dead End' gameplay, full speech and lip synch, and Windows Vista support.
