King's Quest announced

The oldest ones among us (myself among them) certainly will remember the King's Quest name fondly, and it's back with this first reveal trailer! Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, the title will be out in 2015.

Someone on NeoGAF linked to these free remasters of the original games:

They look very cool.. especially for the asking price.

This is great news! They nailed the art style too, looks stunning! I still remember going over to a friends house to play the original Kings and Space Quest games every time a new one came out. There was nothing better.

With the old games being point and click with heavy emphasis on typing in commands and a lot of guesswork, I'm curious how they will bring the gameplay up to date. Going with a context sensitive 2D platformer would be too simple to do the series justice, so I hope they really manage to come up with something more innovative. A new Space Quest game would be amazing as well!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (9 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (9 Hours ago)
