While the remake of the first one is essentially the same game with a different interface, the second one has been mind-blowingly altered. The puzzles all make sense now, there's a much deeper plot, and there are several references to the other games in the series. Along with the music and voice packs, this borders on being as good as the sort of thing one might normally pay money for. Edit: Interestingly enough, the voice of King Graham is by the same actor as it is in the CD-ROM versions of King's Quest V and VI. (edited by Mack Salmon on 8.6.05 2043) Promote this thread!

I've also been waiting like 8 years for a new Tex Murphy game. There is Blue Force, which was designed by Jim Walls, but as far as I know, you can't obtain it legally anymore. Other links of interest: http://freesci.linuxgames.com/ This is an emulator much like ScummVM which allows you to play old Sierra games. http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/ This is a DOS emulator. http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/ The utility used to create the King's Quest remakes, the site also has several other quality games. No more posting in my own thread, I promise. :þ

They're hoping it'll be out in the fall. And over here is fan-made King's Quest IX, which will be released in three parts, each of which will be roughly the size of King's Quest VI. If the story is half as deep as the stuff AGDI added to KQ2, I can't wait.

But maybe that's not legal? I dunno. Thanks, though, I'd never even heard of it.
