King’s Quest is a reimagining of the classic games, but retains the great qualities that made the series so memorable
The Odd Gentlemen are the studio bringing back King’s Quest, under the direction of co-founder Matt Korba. The new iteration borrows some old ideas, while at the same time implements some new ones. The game retains the adventure qualities of the classic games, and it relies greatly on exploration and puzzle solving.

It will follow the recent trend, of a five episode arc, without necessarily being strictly constricted to a single narrative.
