The Week In Games: A Knight To Remember

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: A Knight To Remember

It’s been around 17 years since we’ve gotten a new game in Sierra’s classic King’s Quest series. I’d say we’re due.


Plenty of nifty titles arriving this week, but my eyes keep settling on King’s Quest, one of the earliest PC games I can remember playing that wasn’t completely text-based. The Odd Gentlemen’s new game might not be the point-and-click adventure of old, but perhaps that’s why it’s been “of old” for all these years. We’ll find out when the first chapter arrives this week!

I’m ready to don the red cape and hat again. Not sure if I’m going to wait for a review first, though. I was pretty into KQ (and all the Qs thereafter) and have a special place for it in my mind. I even have an old book that tells the tales of 1-4, read it to the kids... want to play the game with them!
