Trivia

This game's release was delayed owing to the difficulty Sierra's programming division was having creating the new engine the game was supposed to run on. Eventually, the decision was made to use the engine created for King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride (1994), the previous King's Quest game. See more »

Goofs

In the game introduction, there is an enormous boulder next to Sara's house. It is no longer there when the player gets control of Connor. See more »

King's Quest Rules
11 October 1999 | by (Palo Alto, California) – See all my reviews

I have always been a King's Quest fan, and this is one of the best KQ games ever. It's just classic. The plot is fun, Connor and the supporting characters are fun, all the puzzles and potions are fun, and even the fights are fun. The easter eggs, by the way, are fun, too.

I understand there was some controversy about making a violent KQ, but compared to what you can find out there today, I really don't think the violence was that important. Mask of Eternity followed in the noble footsteps of its predecessors, keeping with the mind-blowing puzzles and exploration King's Quest has always had.

Congratulations to the KQ team for another beautiful installment! And if this turns out to be the final Quest, well - it was a worthy swansong.
