Fans of the classic Sierra Entertainment point-and-click adventure series King’s Quest have been nervously awaiting their first look at the latest entry in the franchise for a while now.
Once upon a time Activision had a deal with the top developer in the realms of point-and-click games going today, The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us maker Telltale Games, to make new games based on Sierra titles, but that deal fell through and Activision decided to instead resurrect Sierra itself and bring in The Odd Gentlemen to develop the new King’s Quest. Despite the rocky road, the game has continues progressing, and tonight at The Game Awards 2014 the first trailer for it was unveiled.
You can see what the new King’s Quest looks like below.
Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, the new Kingâ€™s Questâ„¢ reimagines all the charm, humor, puzzles, exploration and sense of wonder that made the franchise so magical when it first arrived thirty years ago. Old and grey, King Graham â€“ the hero made legend in the original Kingâ€™s Quest games â€“ shares the extraordinary stories of his youth with his curious granddaughter, Gwendolyn, taking players back to the feats that shaped a kingdom.
And so begins an episodic saga that honors the core characters and familiar storylines of King Grahamâ€™s early adventures, setting up new chapters tied to â€“ but independent of â€“ the series that helped define Sierra and the adventure genre. Through these tales, a whole new generation can finally experience one of gamingâ€™s most beloved journeys.
