King's Quest is back... sort of.

kings quest

If you had a PC back in 1984 then you had a copy of Roberta Williams' classic King's Quest. The game introduced the PC world to adventure style games, as well as the 2.5D world (it featured perspective backgrounds with non-perspective characters, sort of like an old fashioned cartoon). Sierra would never re-release this game, it's simply too small of an audience. However, if you're longing for something to do and want to get some PCjr flashbacks then download this "tribute" (read: free, but probably illegal) of the game that just popped up at Download.com.
