Sierra has announced the release of the first chapter in its new reimagining of one of adventure gaming’s most treasured franchises, King’s Quest. Titled King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember, this debut chapter is now available as a digital download in Europe on PC via Steam.
Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, the new King’s Quest rekindles the classic charm and curiosity that has captivated fans of this family-friendly series for over 30 years.
“As an aging King Graham looks back on a life of heroic adventure with his precocious granddaughter, Gwendolyn, players will be able to experience first-hand the unforgettable puzzles, places and personalities of his greatest untold stories. The first passage in a five-chapter journey, King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember unfolds on Graham’s early days as a bright-eyed teen in Daventry, competing in a contest of wit and valour for a knighthood in King Edward’s royal court.”
Matt Korba, President and Creative Director of The Odd Gentlemen, said:
“Today is a new beginning, both for those of us who grew up with the King’s Quest games that Roberta Williams and Sierra Entertainment created, as well as for those who are visiting Daventry for the very first time. We hope we’ve made something that feels special for everyone as we turn together to a new page in Graham’s legend.”
The second chapter of King’s Quest is expected to arrive later this year.
