In King’s Quest, players will live out the adventures of King Graham—the hero of the original adventure game series, now old and gray—as he retells them for his young inquisitive granddaughter, Gwendolyn. The game will take you from Graham’s journey to recover the Magic Mirror from a dragon’s lair to his quest to become a knight, with plenty of puzzles and challenges along the way.
