Go To

The first of the King's Quest Fan Remake series. AGD Interactive made two versions of a remake of the first game in Sierra's flagship series. Based on the Serria's own 1990 SCI remake, this remake does not deviate a whole lot from its foundation, but largely follows the scenes, puzzles and events of the remake, though it adds some minor additional changes of its own.

The original version of the remake was released on August 7th, 2001, with an Updated Re-release, known as the Enhanced Edition, was released on January 17th, 2009.

This game provides examples of:

  • Unwinnable by Design: The game offers a mode that keeps all the dead ends from the original. There's an option to disable dead-ends, specifically made to avert the trope by removing unwinnable situations, as well as some of the more unfair deaths.
  • Updated Re-release: Believe it or not, this version also has an update. All the portraits were redone and some tweaks were added such as a new Easter Egg. It also added an optional no-dead-ends mode.
  • What the Hell, Player?: The narrator in the AGD remake likes to call the player out on dickish behavior, like trying to throw rocks at the squirrel or the baby birds, or trying to eat from the bowl of infinite stew right in front of the starving woodcutter and his dying wife.
    • Also, if dead ends are not disabled, the player can cause an unwinnable state, by eating the magic beans or giving away the magic mirror/chest. This will cause the narrator to ask, "Now, why did you do that?"
  • Zillion-Dollar Bill:
