Legacy can be a difficult thing to deal with when a video game series hasn’t been around in a very long time. The Odd Gentlemen stepped into the ring with the monumental task of bringing the King’s Quest series back after a very long break. I’m pleased to report that they’ve knocked it out of the proverbial park with King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember. Sporting a gorgeous art-style, a lovable cast of characters, stunning music and a lot of heart, this game is the return to form that the King’s Quest series deserves.
Sierra has been one of the biggest forces in adventure games throughout the years. The very first adventure game I can recall playing was King’s Quest V. After some time of relative inactivity, late last year Activision announced that Sierra was back and that their first game was going to be a reimagining of King’s Quest. After seeing quite a bit of the game and getting my hands on it at the show, I feel confident it will live up to the name and offer a great experience for both newcomers and longtime fans.
