Our PC videos of King's Quest

I must confess, however old I am, I never played any of the King's Quest games when I was a kid. I still remember them though, particularly number V and VI which featured 256 colors for the very first time. I would be green with envy when reading the PC reviews in magazines, wishing I had more money (and more comprehensive parents) to be able to play them. Thankfully, Sierra (aka indie Activision) made it possible for me to get acquainted with the franchise with a brand new episode. I just had time to play the very beginning so it's too early to say if this first part is truly worth it, but so far I'm liking it very much. PC videos are inside if you're still wondering what to do.

There is something about this game that is displeasing to the eye that I can't really put my finger on. You know in old Chuck Jones Looney Tunes where the background is ten times more detailed than that of the moving foreground, but still match the color. It's like that, but it totally doesn't match the background in any lesser detail. The caricatures look very out of place.

Videos are nice though, good job. Think I'll have to test the game to get a real idea of how it plays.

    KORNdog @Sdarts: the only mark life is strange left on me is that of faked choice and how much i wanted to let Chloe die over and over and over again. lol (1 Hour ago)

    KORNdog @nostradamus: your PC must be complete shit if you're getting 1-5 fps on oxenfree. haha. (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus at least it run like a bige pile of hunking crap. 1-5fps for such a shitty looking 2D game (even if the detailed zoom-in/out 2d arte is cool) vs a 30fps LiS. comparison by my gaming toaster. (5 Hours ago)

    nostradamus Oxenfree is made w/ Unity, by default its shit. (5 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @asdfg: No update since N:A launched on Steam. What was updated was Kaldaien's mod, which is a Steam user who made a mod/tool to fix resolution, framerate and other issues with the game. (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: Ironically, Oxenfree has far many more rarely used words than Life is Strange. Though the game is very good. Still, Life is Strange is eons better because it leaves a mark you never forget. (8 Hours ago)
