Growing up, some of my fondest gaming memories were playing PC games, specifically Sierra’s point and click adventures; Kings Quest, Space Quest, Police Quest and Leisure Suit Larry. I still remember for Christmas at 7 years old, receiving my first game, Kings Quest IV on PC.
Since the start of the Kickstarter craze, most of those games have been popping up left and right. First the remake of Leisure Suit Larry, then Wasteland 2, Tex Murphy and now I just caught wind of the Space Quest creators getting back together for a new Spaceventure. With my frustration for console games, this is a much needed breath of fresh air. The big question is, can they live up to the expectations of their long time fans and at the same time draw in this new generation of ‘entitled’ gamers? Only time will tell.
