Würde ich dieses Spiel mit einer Bäckerei vergleichen,
dann wären Zuckerpilze wohl die Hauptzutat von diesem Gebäck von einem Spiel.
Und obgleich für gewöhnlich Neuauflagen einen unangenehmen Geruch verströmen, fängt man sich hier nur einen angenehmen Sirupduft bei den Wachen ein.

Die Charaktere so kurzfristig man auch sie auch kennenlernt, haben alle einen gewissen Eigengeschmack und Charakter. Sei es ein kräftiger Muskelprotz der seine handwerkliche Seite versteckt, oder der hilfreiche Ausländer mit dem man sich nonverbal versteht. Das Maß an Lebendigkeit in diesem Kapitel aus gut 6-7 Stunden kostenloser Spielzeit, lässt sich durch den Monitor wahrnehmen.

Also seid gewiss, dass ihr diese Brücke sicher passieren könnt.

Das Spiel ist toll, ich möchte es so gern empfehlen!
Auch wenn kein Kapitel wieder an das erste rangekommen ist.

Allerdings hat Sierra hier nach Jahren meiner Liebe alles versaut:
Ich habe das Spiel gekauft als es rauskam, natürlich so komplett wie es damals eben ging, mit dem Season Pass.
Und jetzt, da alles raus ist und ich sehnsüchtig auch auf den Epilog warte stellt sich heraus: DEN EPILOG KANN MAN NUR BEKOMMEN WENN MAN DIE COMPLETE COLLECTION KAUFT!
Das heißt treue Fans, die von Anfang an gespielt haben werden hier komplett ausgeschlossen, denn den Epilog kann man nichts einzeln nachkaufen und er ist wie gesagt nicht im Season Pass enthalten. Und selbst wenn man jetzt in den saueren Apfel beißen wollte und zu dem Season Pass für aktuell 24,99 € sogar nochmal 29,99 für die Complete Edition ausgeben wollte (also alles was man schon hat!!! und der Epilog), dann hat man Pech gehabt, denn das ist bei Steam nicht möglich, da man das Spiel an sich ja schon in der Bibliothek hat. Das heißt ich habe keine Option das Spiel hier jemals komplett zu spielen.

Well done Sierra.
Zum heulen!

Ein wunderbares Spiel. Der Großvater erzählt seiner Enkelin Teile aus seinem Leben aus vergangener Zeit. Diese Erzählungen des Großvaters spielt man dann als Spieler. Während man spielt, erzählt der Großvater. Es ist sehr humor- und liebevoll erzählt. Die Grafik ist dem Spieltyp und der Erzählung passend gewählt. Ich kann es nur empfehlen.
Auch die deutsche Übersetzung ist samt den Sprechern gut gewählt.

Was mir negativ aufgefallen ist:
  • Deutsche Stimmensynchronisation passt nicht gut mit dem Bild überein.
  • Wenn man öfters das schon vorher besuchte Gebiete erneut besuchen möchte, stört das erneute Hinlaufen doch etwas


Wie das mit dem zweiten Kapitel aussieht, kann ich nicht beurteilen. Die vielen - doch negativen Bewertungen - bewegen mich ersteinmal dazu, mit dem zweiten Kapitel zu warten. Zumindest so lange, bis es im Angebot ist.

Als Fan der alten Kings Quest Spiele (Nagut, habe als Kind nur Teil 7 gespielt ;) ) habe ich mich auf dieses Spiel hier gefreut und wurde mit dem ersten Kapitel nicht enttäuscht. Auch der Epilouge ist Klasse, wie sich Graham den Spiegel holt und sollte in der Sammlung nicht fehlen.
Nach knapp 5 Stunden war ich durch und musste an einigen Stellen schon grübeln, wie ich denn nun weiter kommen sollte. Der Humor und vor allem die Erzählweise sind sehr gut gelungen, das einzige Manko wäre die Deutsche Synchro, die zwar echt super ist, aber ganz und gar nicht mit den Mundbewegungen der Charaktere Synchron ist, da sieht das in der Englischen Sprachausgabe viel besser aus.

Für jeden Kings Quest Fan definitiv ein Muss :) - ich freue mich auf die nächsten Kapitel.

Kapitel 1 durchgespielt und es hat gute 7 1/2 Stunden gedauert, bis ich zum Ende kam.

Nun zum Spiel : Meiner Meinung nach ein sehr spannendes Spiel. Nicht nur die Grafik überzeugt mich sondern auch dieser geschick wie die das Spiel so gestalten konnten. Sehr viele Aufgaben sind enthalten, dass den Spieler ermöglichen soll auch sein Hirn einzuschalten und nicht nur einfach durch die gegend zu rennen.

Eine sehr emotionale aber auch Abenteuerliche Story konnte ich im Kapitel 1 entnehmen. Wie Freunde zu Feinden und Feinde zu Freunden wurden.Jedoch möchte ich nicht zuviel verraten.

Es lohnt sich definitiv Kings Quest zu kaufen !!! Freue mich schon auf auf Kapitel 2 das demnächst erscheinen soll .

In my ongoing and likely futile effort to write a Steam review for every game in my library (#339 out of 566)... it's time for King's Quest.

King's Quest is exactly the game you'd hope and expect from an episode remake/reimagining of the classic King's Quest adventure game. The game is pretty and well-animated, very humorous, and paced like a blind one-legged turtle running a marathon. Which is to say: very slow, and for the usual reasons. Say it with me now: PUZZLES!

Most of the puzzles have silly solutions, which can be annoying, but at the same time also fit very well with the comical tone of the story in general. The episodic nature also really helps in making the different portions of the game feel more self-contained -- you won't ever have to worry about not picking up a vital item in the beginning of the game that is necessary for a puzzle at the end of the game, and find yourself unable to progress as a result. Which is, you know, not exactly an uncommon thing with the genre because, say it with me now: ADVENTURE GAMES!

I was never really able to get into the classic King's Quest games (playing the GOG versions decades after they released probably had something to do with it). King's Quest: We Couldn't Be Bothered To Think Of A Subtitle Because We Base Our Decisions On Dumb Marketing Trends seems to be an excellent revival, similar in tone and structure, while also being sufficiently modernized to appeal to modern audiences.

So, I played chapter 1 quite a bit.
It was done well. So, TOG can make adventure games or at least could by that moment. I even enjoyed it.
So, why is this review marked as negative?
I remember that TOG was hired to make King's Quest at the same time as another project. It is called Hiveswap. And TOG did next to nothing with kickstarter money and contract from whatpumpkin. This is not a healthy business strategy. I do not support it. TOG had some really good game devs at the time of development of both King's Quest and Hiveswap, but their business strategy is a complete atrocity towards ones who hire them. TOG can not be trusted. Never forget, or they'll ruin more games for us, players.

The stylized art, great voice acting, and decent music are definitely nice things, but wasn't the reason I was interested in this game. I enjoyed the old Point and Click adventures from years ago and parser quests before that; King's Quest, Myst series, Grim Fandango, Space Quest, Maniac Mansion, nearly all Lucas Arts games, and the same with Sierra. Although this game does a great job with the art, and the story, the actual game play seems to be an afterthought.

There were so many things that bothered me about this game. I was never a fan of having arcade mini-games within a Point and Click adventure; if I wanted an arcade game, I would go find one to play. The arcade sequences in the game felt a lot like Dragon's Lair(1983); if you never played it then look it up and you will see what I mean. In addition, they would pop up in the middle of a cut-scene. So, while I'm leaning back in my chair to watch the cut-scene, my character dies because I didn't press W, A, S, or D fast enough! There could at least be a warning to Get Ready!

There is hardly any point and click or exploration in the game. The game feels very, very linear, especially the early parts of the game. This would have been much better if you could have been able to move around your 3-D environment, and used your mouse(or controller) to Free-Look around the scenes. I would liked to have been able to use a mouse-pointer to click on items I see and interact with them; instead, I only get an onscreen notification to press the spacebar when I come across something I can interact with.

The puzzles were very few and very, very simple. Most weren't even really puzzles. Basically, you had to collect items and give them to certain people; there were a few branching options in the game, but I don't think it is worth playing a second time to see the other outcomes. The only real puzzle challenge comes at the end of the game, which I won't spoil for those who want to try this game out. The main reason I won't play this game again is that there is no way to stop previously heard dialogue. So, if you accidentally click on something you've already heard, you have to suffer through hearing the same things again. If you fail at some of the arcade sections of the game, you have to wait, through often times long cut-scenes, before you can attempt the arcade challenge again.

Bottom line is that, while some may enjoy this, it really, really, is not a good Point and Click adventure. If you grew up playing real adventure games and remember the great feeling of accomplishment you had when you completed a particularly devious puzzle, or finally a game, you will be severely disappointed with this game. To me, this game seemed more like an interactive cartoon. In fact, I would have probably enjoyed watching this game as a cartoon rather than actually playing it. With all that said, there is a lot of potential with The Odd Gentlemen to put out a real adventure, with similar production quality, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it. These Stories posing as games just aren't that fun.

I don't really want to say I don't recommend the game because it is enjoyable and they have put effort in to make it look nice. But I mainly enjoyed the first (and FREE!! part)
It has a bright story line, a lot of funny jokes. The puzzles are not to hard, so it almost seems like a nice game for my little nephew, but it was definitely enjoyable for me because of the jokes and nice setting.
Then I puchased the remaining parts (fortunately on sale), The second part you are captured by Goblins and have to set yourself and your village people free. I only found out to late that taking a nap would make a night pass (my bad... it makes sense) and every night the village people get weaker, so they started dieing one by one, so I wanted to restart the chapter.... no clue how to do that. So even though that one still requires a lot of puzzling, it annoyed me because half my people died and i couldn't undo it.
The chapters after that started to annoy me even more. To much dialogue and to little and to easy puzzles. Less funny jokes... it was just not worth the puchase.

I used to be a big fan of the original kings quest games. And even though there are a lot of characters and cues to the old games, it didn't feel like an actual kings quest game to me.

So, they've done their best and if you like to see a story and occasionally use your brain to fix some easy puzzles, its nice, but if you like the real puzzle solving like kings quest I wouldn't purchase it.
Do get the first part though! It is funny and free... so why not.

So far this game has been visually stunning, with incredible characters and a charming (and sometimes surprisingly brutal) story! The different paths you can take through different puzzle approaches are interesting too, and I found that although the second episode is different to the first, it's no worse!
As for the Complete edition vs. Season Pass, it does mention it in the descriptions- however, hopefully there'll be some way to get the epilogue once all the episodes have been released, especially for those who preordered- it's still early days yet! If not, I'll be joining in the debate despite getting the complete edition (which was on sale for the same price as the regular season pass).

If you ever played the original series, this is a great trip down memory lane. You play Graham as a younger boy while Grandpa Graham retells his adventures. Good graphics, great puzzles, and relatively straight forward on how to complete the puzzles - with little hints here and there from Grandpa Graham. The only thing negative I would say is a couple of the puzzles were a bit frustrating to try and complete and the game lagged a little. Puzzle level I would say is Easy/Medium if you are any good at point-and-click type games. It wasn't hard to figure out how to piece things together, but every so often I found myself wandering around trying to piece things together. The little story lines are awesome and the dialogue is witty. I did find myself chuckling over a few of the jokes.

Overall a fun way to spend 6 hours or so! Can't wait to continue the chapters!

While the classic Sierra adventures were part of my childhood in some way, somehow I’ve never played the original King’s Quest games to this day. I know quite a bit about the series and I do own it on GOG since forever ago, but for one reason or the other I’m yet to finally play them. The new game (well, it’s an episodic title from 2015-2016, so it’s not new anymore) didn’t quite interest me at first because I thought it would be yet another attempt to create a Telltale-type adventure with a bunch of QTEs, limited choices (which are far less meaningful than what they want to look) and all the other pitfalls of the type of games. The opening of the very first episode (they’re called Chapters here) only confirmed my expectations, so I’ve ignored this title for years. Until I’ve seen a few reviews that got my interest piqued and I’ve decided to give the game a go. Boy am I glad that I did.

The framing device of the game is perfectly handled. The concept is very simple – every Chapter of the game is a story the very old King Graham (main character of the original series and of this one) tells to his grand daughter (who is a new character). All of these stories contain retellings of the events from the original games, but with lots of changes and new twists. In-canon, all of the games did happen in some way, but have since became stories and legends, so even the events of these chapters aren’t necessarily “real events”, and are rather just an interpretation told by Graham, tweaked for the occasion. And while I fully expect to have missed lots of references that fans of the original series would be absolutely crazy about, this framing means that both new and old players can enjoy the story.

And what a wonderful story it is. I did not expect this at all from the opening, but the game manages to be some of the strongest and best written adventure narratives I’ve ever seen in a video game, and, frankly, other mediums as well. It starts as a simply wonderful and charming adventure with incredibly obvious references to The Princess Bride (to the point that one of the key characters in the series is voiced by one of the actors from the movie) and, if I’m being frank, it feels as witty and well done as The Princess Bride was. But then, as the chapters progress, the game becomes so much more. So many really serious topics are brought up in the most natural fashion, fitting the fairy-tale adventure of the games. You get to love and understand the characters and by the ending chapters it’s impossible to not get emotional.

The gameplay becomes far more involved as well. While it does have several really boring text-book QTE sections that are simply unfun, vast majority of them are in the first Chapter. Apparently, after an extremely negative reaction to them, the later chapters were seriously redesigned in terms of gameplay and while it is a genuine shame some of the work was apparently scrapped due to this, it improved the series for the better. Every chapter has some sort of a “gimmick” to them, a thing that makes the basic inventory collecting and puzzle solving adventuring feel fresh and different. Even if it never gets more clever than what you get in Chapter 2. Lots of problems have several solutions, there are consequences to the player choices which shape the characters and it flows really well.

Until it doesn’t and a really fun section suddenly turns out to be a puzzle with a fail state. While so many sections of the game are really well executed, there are numerous spots in the game where the pacing just dies. You would be doing something fun, with the narrative keeping momentum and then suddenly a pointless puzzle, which requires you to slowly run around several locations an has no clear solution until after you’ve wasted some of your time. Chapter 5 is, probably, the worst offender in this regard simply because of how heightened and emotionally invested the story becomes only to be stopped dead in its tracks for an hour of non-stop puzzles or something of the sorts. The game constantly recovers from these missteps, but at the same time it does them at the most inopportune times, seriously affecting the enjoyment.

Though, the worst thing about King’s Quest right now, I suppose, is that one piece of content that was previously available is simply not available anymore. The Epilogue or Chapter 6 was originally included only for those who bought a special edition of the game and not only it was never made available separately, the special edition was taken off sale as well. Which means that the said extra chapter, with all of the work put into it, all of the unique things it had, however short it was, is just lost in time. Just because Activision.

King’s Quest has a rough beginning, but it is a wonderful adventure game and an adventure story with a lot of wit, a lot of heart and a lot of strong writing. And I would strongly encourage checking it out.

This game is basically 'find items and find where to use them' which is fun, AND the game is hilarious. The jokes don't get old (at least not for me), and the animation is funny, too. I'm only on Chapter 1, but I must be deep into it... lots of items in my inventory, and it's still quite entertaining. DO RECOMMEND!

A frustrating and questionable decision by Sierra made it so that you have to buy The Complete Collection in order to get the epilogue. The problem is that if you for example already own episode 1 you can no longer purchase The Complete Collection as you are considered to be owning it already. Adding the season pass will not help either as the epilogue is an exclusive to The Complete Collection. This weird decision by Sierra has made the full game unplayable for many, and it seems that if you were unfortunate enough to buy the season pass, you'd have to buy the entire game AGAIN on another Steam account. Truly a disgusting marketing tactic to milk and annoy their loyal fanbase.

If you liked the classic King's Quest games, then I think you would like this. It takes out the missable items and there technically aren't any deaths, but it's still challenging and I think it does justice to the originals. Excellent voice acting as well from Christopher Lloyd, Josh Keaton, and Wallace Shawn.

This right here is a masterpiece of point and click games. The music, the voice acting and the characters are phenomenal, the atmosphere is welcoming and the game feels extremaly cozy. It has a couple of downsides such as: unskipable cutscenes, loading screens and the story gets kinda lamer with each chapter, but overall it's a great adventure. No bullshit inventory options, just pure goodness. If ya enjoyed Grim Fandango this a game for you.

This game is full a delightful references, it's funny, has some good puzzles and really beautiful graphics (thanks to a very solid art direction). But most importantly, it goes from light hearted fun jokes to a really gutpunching somber tone in a real narrative tour de force.

Story - 4/5
Atmosphere - 4/5
Gameplay - 4/5

This game is so good, that I replayed it immediately after finishing it for the first time.
It is a simple, lovely game with no politics or agendas in it. (it's only a shame that the epilogue content is no longer available on steam...)

- Classic adventure game. You will be picking up random objects and poking other random objects with them untill you find a match. I don't really like this type of games but once I learned how to do it it wasn't that bad. There is also many puzzles and riddles. 3rd, 4th and 5th episodes are mainly puzzles and riddles. Those I enjoyed very much. You can also make some decisions and together with how you approach and solve the puzzles, you will shape the main character a bit.

- Story is simple, fairy tale, with wacky, childish or cute humour, with a lot of references to modern society. It gets weird from time to time, but it is always funny and never so embarassing or stupid you wouldn't at least giggle. It is surpirsingly well written. The characters, dialogues and the story. From 3rd chapter on it gets more serious and the game touches some grown up stuff, like marriage, family, death and legacy, and it presents these things in a mature way, no politics or agendas or anything.

- There are some references to the older King's Quest games, but as someone who never played them I can say that you don't have to play those at all to enjoy this game. It follows it's own storyline.

This game could have been much, much better. Even though I think it is fair to compare it with the original series, I won't judge it by that comparision, but there are some weak spots that I'd like to mention.

First, this game is a rollercoaster. The chapters and even their individual sections go like a sine wave through various levels of quality and enjoyability, which makes the experience a bit incoherent.

I don't think the UI is particularly intuitive either. There are some weird choices of keys, the mouse is not very usable, and the controls aren't well configurable, which is something that should be expected from a modern game. It is playable however.

The music in the game is very good, ranging from both recognizable and novel melodies. The graphics have a very cartoony style that one must get accustomed to, but the scenery is marvelous.

The gameplay is good as well; the game stays true to its adventure roots, and in particular I like how easy it is to be able to try every item in your inventory on something (a too common sight in adventure games). However the saving options in the game are really poor, and there are less slots than in an average adventure game of old. This might be fine for a game with no choices, but sometimes I simply want to try stuff before I settle on a way I want to proceed forward, which is something not easily done here (eventually I had to make backups of the save file).

I find the story enjoyable but weird and inconsistent at the same time. It doesn't tie particularly well into the original series, instead it uses the original story as a setting of sorts and weaves new story threads throughout the whole of it. In some parts it adds to the original plot, in some it's in conflict with, but most of the times it keeps its distance. Apart from the royal family and a couple of villains (and Cedric), there aren't many recognizable faces to be seen. The kingdom of Daventry is also quite different from its original portrayal, somewhat closer to Serenia. I also particularly didn't like the humor in this game, it's too childish and cringey, unlike in the old Sierra games, which, despite also containing some bizarre aspects and a load of puns, were perhaps more naturally subtle in that regard.

All in all, I feel this game lives in a parallel universe and a separate canon. It's more of a fan story that is decent on its own, but diverges too much to be considered a part of the complete collection (despite being distributed by Sierra). For a continuation of the story, The Silver Lining does a much better job. I also feel like the game thinks that puzzles for the sake of puzzles themselves are enough for an adventure, which certainly wasn't true for the original series.

Now onto the individual chapters:

Chapter 1 is decent and enjoyable, although I can't say I particularly liked any of the characters much, including the (overly) young Graham.

Chapter 2 is very frustrating. This is the only chapter where I had to look for a walkthrough, since the absence of proper saving makes trying different paths completely unenjoyable. An adventure game shouldn't force the player to face the consequence of their action like this when there are thousands of options that cannot be even tried, while adjusting to a new mechanic.

Chapter 3 is better but weird. Graham is finally likeable and there are some decent places and puzzles, but there are also quite boring sections.

Chapter 4 turns the game into some sort of a Sokoban-like game. It was not hard, it was not so boring, but it was tedious and too long to be a major chapter in an adventure game.

Chapter 5 is... a chapter. It is still mostly puzzles with some story and interesting sections in it. I particularly liked the [spoiler]2D reminiscence sections of it, making me wish the whole game was like that (the VGA part, not the AGI one)[/spoiler]. The ending was okay.

All in all, it's not a bad puzzle/adventure game, but it's not a King's Quest game.

I grew up playing sierra adventure games and own all the original KQ games so this game was a pleasant surprise for me. This is a light hearted whimsical fantasy point and click adventure game. It is surprisingly well written and even got a few laughs out of me. The voice acting is equally impressive. The puzzles find a nice balance between challenging and fun and the entire game was a just a fun adventure throughout. This is a great point and click adventure game for old and new fans alike.

The original King's Quest series had a few hit or miss titles, but overall they were all enjoyable. Humour and writing, the stories, the characters; they were all great. And this newest entry does a well job to returning to that. It definitely captures the essence of what made those past games great while modernizing what needed changing. My biggest problem was the lack of a skip button in the first chapter, especially during multiple playthroughs trying to get every possible event and option.

Unfortunately, the game takes a nose-dive in quality after the 3rd chapter after getting a little worse with each. The fourth chapter will make you want to close the game forever. I got through it, barely, but the suck continued in chapter 5.

Of course, the chapter they -by far- put the most effort and consideration into is the very first, which they give away for free to try and temp people to buy. Don't. Play the first chapter and be content watching the rest on Youtube if you have to. It's a trap.

Having grown up playing the King's Quest series, I feel as though the characters are part of my own family. Suffice it to say I wept in the final chapter. Thank you, Odd Gentlemen, for giving us the joy of nostalgia, the pain of loss, and hope for the future of Daventry.

Not a Point & Click!

Reminiscent of the old King's Quests, I was looking forward to this new version! However, I can't use my keyboard due to an illness, and this game moves the character with WASD. So this game is impossible for me.
I want to provide an informational review, which doesn't exist. I'm not that jaded to provide a negative review just because of a wrong tag. The game does look fun to me, and the art looks beautiful.

The first three or four KQs had also movement with the keyboard, so I guess it does fit the series. Too bad it's not a P&C...

This is one of if not the best choice driven story game I have ever played. This game plays with all your emotions, as well as works your brain on a few puzzles. My only negative is that chapter 4 felt like some of the puzzles bogged down the story just a bit, but all chapters were unique fun and had their own twists and turns. This is a must have for all story game lovers, or anyone that just loves a good story.

Man, I loved this game. I've played every game in the franchise and this one just took me right back my childhood. They did a great job on the narrative and the voice acting. Loved the graphics, it was user friendly and I love how it's choice-based. Definitely get this game if you are a fan of any Sierra game.

It’s not about playing a game, as much as it’s about watching a cartoon.

That was my main thought as I played through the first episode of 2015 King’s Quest “A Knight to Remember”. It’s more of a narrative-driven game in the tradition of TellTale games, rather than what I remember from the original series. I know that this is not a bad thing when it comes to a lot of gamers out there, but personally it’s not my thing. Never was.
It was just unfortunate for me that it was translated into a King’s Quest game.

I didn’t experience the sense of discovery and exploration with every new screen that went hand in hand with old children’s tales. Not the sense of dread like being a prisoner inside an evil wizard mansion (KQ3) or being trapped inside a giant’s closet (KQ4).
It’s just a minimale “look or touch” kind of interaction with a lot of cut-scense and unskippable dialogues, wrapped in a very family-friendly Disney like world.
The puzzles - when present - are straightforward enough for an 8 years old to figure out. I don’t have much to say about it. It is a lot of QTE, use the right item with the right object, and some mini-memory games.

There isn’t much there in the sense of nostalgia for me, since it plays and feels too different to share the same space as with it’s former games in the series. The lack of challenging puzzles as a strategy to appeal to a wider crowd and the sense of dumbed-down gameplay just made it feels like another missed opportunity.

I actually thought I had the season pass for this and I'm too lazy to split the chapters up. So this review is for everything as a whole, even though steam insists I review each piece of the pie individually. Because science.

King’s quest puts us in the shoes of a now aged Graham telling a series of tales set between the original games. I grew up on LucasArts, Sierra, Westwood, and the like, enjoying the princeless bride from this series on release and discovering its predecessors as a then young’un. Returning to see Graham and the family was like revisiting old friends in a lot of ways. Anyhow, let’s talk pros and cons.


Pros:

The game feels like the original creators came out of retirement to make it. From the truly terrible puns written into delightful dialogue, to the way the story is told. If you’re an old fan you’ll find a lot of things that remind you of where this game came from. (But don’t be fooled, it’s also nothing like its predecessors, which I will come to.)

The music and environmental artwork are beautiful and atmospheric, giving the game an immersive feeling despite the cartoony characters. They brought the place to life in an unexpected way.

Though the stories are disjointed (which I will come to), the ability to see Graham age, and his children age, and his kingdom and friends age brings an unexpected weight to parts of the game. This sets up for several emotional pay offs which are dealt with tactfully and interestingly.

There are many paths to take and options to choose (in the first 2 instalments at least) that give the game a degree of replayability. These alone aren’t fantastic, but the fact that they’re kept track of (to a certain degree) means that by the end of the play through you can end up with very different dialogue in the same scenes.


Cons:

This game is not another king’s quest game. It simply isn’t. It’s strongly inspired by, rooted in, and gives a great shot at capturing the feel of one. But it isn’t. No amount of dressing up, will change the fact that it’s closer to a telltale game than an original point and click.

The game handles terribly on keyboard and mouse. I’m not a fan of noobsticks. I hated them on the N64, I thought it was ridiculous the PS1 had 2 of them, and now they’re building my PC games with the sodding things in mind? No. Just No. If you’re going to make it keyboard and mouse compatible, at least do a decent job of it. The screen changes with direction changes mean that in several instances I found myself running into a loading screen twice before I could react properly, because I wasn’t expecting the direction change.

This feeds into my biggest rant about the game though: Dead time. The character moves so slowly, and with no option to just double click the exit I wanted… man, it killed me. The inability to skip so many pointless time wasting animations, dialogues (though that got better later on), scenes I’d already seen, etc. I feel like so much of every part of this game was padding, waiting for movement. Perhaps I’m impatient in my adult life, or perhaps it was annoying, only you know for sure, gentle reader.

QTE. The bane of my existence because they’re a poor mechanic for lazy developers, but that’s a separate argument. I have to ask a critical question on putting them here, though: Who was this game aimed at? I ask this, because if it was aimed at the original fans of the series. Those folks are in their 50’s by now, and you’re making their arthritic joints hammer a button repeatedly? Calm down, Satan. If it’s aimed at the hip kids who can’t cope for 4 seconds without doing something (says the man who just whined about animation times) then why is it so heavily referencing the originals? Can we pick an audience and stick with it please?

The degenerating volume of content. I suppose it was inevitable. The industry promised us season passes so they could put out games based on interest instead of rushing them and shipping badly finished games. It was inevitably going to force developers to rush out later content to fit the deadlines anyway, meaning we end up paying more for less. But that’s an argument for another time. In this instance in a lot of ways it reflected as you’d imagine… I’m putting it as a con despite it actually cheering me up in some ways: less content means less time running about and more time eating story… I don’t think that’s really a plus though.

Relating to this is that as the games go on, the ability to properly digest your choices and play back information gets less and less. For example in the second or third instalment I managed to save all the townsfolk… but it only let me take one with me, despite others being on the way, and already ready for freedom. The people all survived anyway… but it then only recognised my chosen partner as having been saved in later parts, which I found really disappointing.


Suggested improvements:

Improvements are easy. Kill the QTE and fix the tank controls. Then add some skip animation/dialogue options for even more of the stuff I don’t want to watch 30 times as I run about looking for the pixel or combination of things I missed. Thanks.



Overall recommendation:

I don’t really know who this is for. A diehard fan of the originals may well feel cheated by these games, different as they are. And new comers might not get the in-jokes and find so many things frustrating because of it. There seem to be more cons than pros in general, but on balance I think the game is worth buying (on sale, of course) and playing through despite its flaws.

It feels like a fitting tribute to the originals and the love of them shines through in every aspect. I really enjoyed the ending, even if it was ridiculous from a logical point of view, and I encourage anyone who has read all the way to the end of my rambling to give it a shot. (Again, when it’s on sale.)

It's much more like Dragon's Lair than it is Kings Quest. Very little puzzling and logic - much more trial, die and re-trial. Some huge misses in not being able to skip conversations and the slowness with which they're read. Far too repetitive and not nearly challenging enough. A lot of work went into it, obviously, and the art is fun. It's not for me, but give it a go.

Kings Quest was the first computer game I ever played. I was 5 years old. I couldnt spell well so it was damn near impossible to play but I remember walking into a witches cave and she cooked me or something.

Now its evolved into a game that everyone should play. Such a relaxing time.
Good game!

Really excellent continuation (of sorts!) of the franchise. If you ever enjoyed a King's Quest game in the past, you'll absolutely love the gameplay here.

I also recommend playing through all the older games first, even if you just use walkthroughs to get through them quickly - there are so many clever references here and it'd be a shame to miss out on them!

Totally worth the price of one shiny, gold coin.

Took me back in time to playing the original Kings Quest series on my Tandy 1000sx as a kid. Thank you to the developers for putting into this reboot as much passion as Roberta and Ken Williams did when they originally invented the graphic adventure gaming experience. I met Roberta at E3 in 1998 when they were working on a 3d version of Kings Quest IX, fortunately it didn't come to life from the prototypes I saw then. This is something I can share with my children, on a pc I helped them build, and start a new chapter.

I have a hard time thinking of what to say about these games. They are all more or less the same but with varying degrees of puzzle difficulty and a completely different story. So I'll just say that I enjoyed this story, and the puzzles were good enough. You can try it for free so if you like Chapter 1 and that leaves you wanting more I'd say this story is worth it.
