Episodic gaming has made quite a comeback in recent years, particularly with point and click adventure games. Ever since the Walking Dead and Telltale Games as a whole, the genre has been seeing a bit of a resurgence. Not just on computers where they originated from, but on consoles, reaching a whole new audience. King’s Quest, one such game, has reached the end of its storyline. Released back in 2015, the fifth and final episode of King’s Quest has been released, bringing the game to a close.
King’s Quest is based on a game series of the same name from the 1980s. Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, the game is not seen as a sequel of the original. It has been described as a reimagining of the classic series, with the events of the previous games being canon. It does this through the clever use of its framing device. The main character, King Graham, recounting the events of his past to his granddaughter. The final chapter of the story will also take place in the present time. King Garham, with only a handful of days left, will have to defeat an old foe. One that has been present since his early years.
To celebrate the conclusion of King’s Quest, the publisher, Sierra Entertainment has released a complete edition. All episodes of the game will be included with this edition including a playable epilogue. Said epilogue has not been released yet, but is planned to be before winter. The complete editions of the game will be available in physical form for both PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Those who do not wish to play on a console will have an alternate plan. The season pass for episodes 2-5 of the game is available for PC gamers. On PC, the first episode is free.
