Our PC videos of King's Quest

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.

    Melmoth useful information, it could be hard to find what you were looking for. For very specific in-dept subjects (such as old consoles/arcades tech discussions/troubleshooting) you'd have to go elsewhere. (37 minutes ago)
