This. This is the moment the King's Quest series has been leading up to. Not 7 - because seven is an animated Disney travesty. And certainly not 8 - because 8 was just barely a King's Quest at all. But this. This is - effectively, the series swan song. And it does a lot of…Read more You Sheep!
So, I'm going to confess to something right away: I was intensely worried about replaying this game, twenty years along.
