I received Kings Quest as a prize for getting “Name the game” correctly on Major Nelson’s podcast.
It’s not the type of game that would be on my radar, but it’s actually a fun game. Kings Quest is all about the story. It has very simplistic controls mechanics which allowed me to be immersed into the story. There’s really not much combat in the game, you have to play for a while to get a very short combat sequence. Which I thought adds to is appeal.
The best thing about Kings Quest is it’s humour. You have some funny characters and dialogue. The humour reminded me of Disney’s old cartoons like Junglebook and Dumbo and I wonder if some of those was an influence on the script.
Oh and for those who have played the game Archakaaaaaaaaa!
