Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.12.2014
Coming Soon reports that Activision announced they are relaunching the Sierra brand. The Sierra company created many 80s and 90s computer games like King's Quest, Space Quest, Quest for Glory, Leisure Suit Larry and more. The brand relaunches with Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions during the holiday season, followed by a new King's Quest next year.
Here's the official description: In development by the beloved and quirky studio The Odd Gentlemen (The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom), "King's Quest" is a fully reimagined version of the fan-favorite Sierra game fit for both the old and new generation of "King's Quest" players. Huge fans of the original King's Quest series, The Odd Gentlemen are crafting a charming new adventure with an awe-inspiring art style, engaging puzzles, and a wondrous interactive narrative brimming with humor. In the new story, King Graham – revered as the greatest adventurer to ever live – shares his life's adventures with his curious granddaughter, Gwendolyn. It is through these tales that Gwendolyn discovers the true greatness of her grandfather. "King's Quest" is expected to make its heralded return in 2015.
This is the first new King's Quest game since 1998's King's Quest: Mask of Eternity.
