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 My foremost concern is the quality of game design and user experience. I don't actually care about the exploitation of whales much if it doesn't hurt the game. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX So then top players stop wearing their loot so that they don't get matched with noobs? Sounds like a bad plan. Hopefully anything that implements this stuff leans heavily on ELO first. (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts Fuck!!! it just came to me, this type of Micro Transactions Match Making (MTMM) based system will mostly be used to explore children and teenagers. And other companies will follow suit. Jesus... (1 Hour ago)

    Sdarts "For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases". Today is a really fucking bad and depressing day. (1 Hour ago)

    docLEXfisti Yes, EA totally ruined that franchise. DS1 was awesome, DS2 was still great, DS3 was... different (2 Hours ago)

    nostradamus *i mean dead space 2. from people who jumped from the first expecting a same game, felt a bit lukewarm a nd a game that was molding it self for the tropes of that gen. (4 Hours ago)
