King's Quest I: Quest for the Crown

King's Quest: Quest for the Crown, a revolutionary game designed by Roberta Williams and released in 1984, epitomizes the adventure gaming experience. This game was the first of its kind that allowed the player to interact in an entirely original 2.5D world, and can be credited as the game that started graphic adventure gaming on the PC altogether. King's Quest was not only groundbreaking, but also history in the making, and was followed by seven more games bearing the King's Quest title.In 1990, Sierra released a remake of the original King's Quest game with newer technology and graphics (using their SCI engine, 16 color EGA graphics, sound card and mouse support), which ended up being a total market failure. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that Sierra ever had or will have any thoughts of making an even further updated version of King's Quest 1, because they would most likely lose money. That's where the Anonymous Game Developers decided to take over. Our aim was to remake King's Quest 1 with the same level of quality as Sierra's remake of Quest for Glory 1. We believe that the enhanced gaming experience for King's Quest fans has justified our months of hard work for no pay or credit.
