King's Quest series

Group Description

A series of graphical fantasy adventure games featuring the escapades of King Graham and his royal family, rulers of the fairy-tale land of Daventry. It was originally designed by Roberta Williams and developed by Sierra On-Line, Inc.

King's Quest is Sierra's longest-running and largest adventure game series. The first game (1984) is widely regarded as the progenitor of third-person perspective adventures; it combined text input with physical character navigation in a graphically represented world. Like other adventure game series made by the same company, King's Quest switched to icon-based, point-and-click interface in the fifth installment.

Despite its position as the company's flagship adventure series, King's Quest ended the principal phase of its existence with an action/adventure hybrid (1998). Afterwards, the series shared the fate of most adventure game franchises - it was effectively terminated, until interest in it was somewhat renewed, following the appearance of several fan-made remakes of its first installments. An episodic adventure game entitled The Silver Lining (2010) attempted to restore the series, continuing its overarching plot.
