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?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (43 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (46 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (48 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (51 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (53 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (54 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: generally yeah. i mean, MS need their next gears of war-level success, even if it just becomes an annualized addition to their usual games. but it would be something. (55 minutes ago)
