King's Quest III Redux - To Heir Is Human

Finally, the time has come for you, oh adventure-loving and most precious reader, to download and enjoy one of the best freeware adventure games ever released, for King's Quest III Redux has -as was indeed quite elaborately foretold- been released. And though it sadly is the last game the incredibly talented AGD Interactive will release, you uncaring, heartless, game-obsessed bastard will be lucky enough to play through a true gem (and so will the rest of us). Download it right now from this place and don't forget to thank the people responsible for it.

In case you are still wondering what the fuss is all about, know that King's Quest III Redux is a PC/Mac remake of the original KQ3: To Heir is Human by Sierra, that adds a beautiful soundtrack, an excellent voice-over, a sleek point-and-click interface, amazing 256-colour VGS graphics and a ton polish to an already great game. And is it really that good? Well, of course it is! Having already played its review build, I can guarantee its quality, but this very post will not be a review. Oh, no. The review will appear within the week, just to give you time to savor the experience. Go on, get downloading. Here are a couple of tasty pics to further excite you...

  1. I never played KQ III. It looks like a wonderful remake though. The first two games really annoyed me, having to pre type commands before entering a room. There is no way anyone could type 'Throw dagger at dragon' in less than 2 seconds!

  2. You are indeed correct good sir Garrett. Sometimes Sierra's parser was brutal and this is a fantastic remake. BTW, lovely blog...
