Episode 23 – King’s QuestFebruary 18, 2013
Welcome to episode 23. This time around we’re talking about the huge Sierra adventure series that started back in 1984, King’s Quest.
Before we get into this huge topic, we have a few small items of news to cover:
Ken Allen put out a very interesting podcast where he discusses how he came up with the music for Space Quest 4. Also, it turns out that he will be able to rearrange his own creations despite the fact the rights are owned by Activision through mechanical licensing.
Secondly, big news on the GoG.com front. System Shock 2 is now available for purchase for 9.99 USD. I definitely need to give this one a whirl since I didn’t get a chance to play it when it originally came out.
So that’s that for the news, now we get on to our main topic, Roberta Williams’ King’s Quest series. I talk about the history of the series and cover some interesting points of each of the eight games in the series.
