@ dbqfan: Hard Drive!?? What I would have given for a hard drive with my PC jr! I played King's Quest from 5 1/4 floppy.

@ Paul: King's Quest was never a point and click game. It was a text game with graphics. In other words, you actually had to think about commands to give rather than just click on objects.

I may be wrong, but I think KQ1 was one of the games that was modernized and had a VGA version that used a context sensitive mouse instead of commands. I think Larry 1 and SQ1 were also modernized.

wolfing, if that's the case with the modernized version then it couldn't have been any good.

BTW, you can buy the original and the sequels at gog.com for pretty cheap :-)

My version of Kings Quest used the direction keys for movement and the space bar for commands such as opening doors etc. It was a VGA version.

I think there is an whole slew of great games out there that should be rebooted for modern hi performance gaming computers.

I still have my original Kings Quest game that I bought in 1988. I played it on a Tandy TRS80 with a 10 Megabyte hard drive and 64K of ram and a 8088 processor. That game was state of the art back then and lots of fun to play. My "big" work computer had a 40 megabyte hard drive and 1Mb of ram and a 80286 processor. That was the envy of the office.
