These people remade the first two King's Quest games with VGA graphics. 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.

www.sq7.org is a fan-made unofficial sequel. There's also a Space Quest prequel (SQ 0) on Roger Wilco's Virtual Broomcloset (wiw.org).

Any cool Police Quest stuff along those lines? 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. :

These guys are following up on AGDI with a remake of King's Quest III. 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.

A quick Googling took me to an abandonware site where you can get it. But maybe that's not legal? I dunno. Thanks, though, I'd never even heard of it.

Oddly enough, this was all done on Sunday, but then was pulled due to phrases that also can be found in the King James Bible. on the shelves 10/14:
