Trivia

In order to guess the gnome's name, the player must first identify the gnome from the corresponding fairy tale, then alter the name according to the note found in the witch's house ("Sometimes it is wise to think backwards") - but not simply spell it backwards but in backwards alphabet (a=z, b=y, etc.), so the correct answer is neither Rumplestiltskin nor Nikstlitselpmut, but Ifnkovhgroghprm. Since the puzzle proved to be very difficult for the players, it was made easier in the remake King's Quest I: Quest for the Crown (1990). See more »

Classic. The adventure that started it all.
23 March 2001 | by (Gansbaai, South Africa) – See all my reviews

When Ken and Roberta Williams decided to create an adventure game for the Personal Computer, they decided on King's Quest. And they couldn't have made a better choice. As this was the game that started it all.

King's Quest was followed by seven sequels, and fantasy adventure games are now plenteous. And although I did not enjoy this game as much as it's sequels, and even though it's crude when compared to today's standards, this was the game that started quality gaming.
