Save the Kingdom of Daventry in King’s Quest – Today in History – May 10th, 1984

The original King’s Quest was quite a game.  For the time it was amazing, it still is in many respects.  King’s Quest was a marvel for the period and something that was just not seen on computers.  Up to the release of this harbinger of things to come title by Sierra Entertainment (later to become […]
