Sierra unveiled the first of a four-part series of diaries showcasing the development of its upcoming adventure game, King’s Quest. These trailers let players go behind closed doors with new King’s Quest developer The Odd Gentlemen to meet the people, and get to know the passions and techniques driving this bold reimagining of one of gaming’s most treasured franchises.
Titled The Vision, this first video introduces Creative Director Matt Korba and Producer Lindsey Rostal, who jumped at the opportunity to bring King’s Quest games into a new era. To begin anew, the team chose to begin this new journey at its end, as an aged King Graham takes his granddaughter, Gwendolyn, back through the untold tales of his astounding life.
It all came full circle for the team when they met King’s Quest creator Roberta Williams along with fellow Sierra co-founder Ken Williams in order to understand firsthand what inspired the game that paved the way for so many adventures to come, and was also a passing of the torch from one generation to the next.
The first chapter of King’s Quest will hit digital platforms later this year for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
