Oh joy and rapture. Rapture and Joy! One of the best games ever, the Sierra classic, Quest For Glory II has been remade and is ready for a free download at AGD's Website
. AGD made fan remakes of King's Quest one and two in the past and have done some bang up work.
For those who have never played the game, it is a fascinating mixture of point and click adventure game and RPG. I always preferred the story and the adventure side of thing to the rpg elements, and as they seem to have ramped up the difficulty, I am further entrenched in that opinion. I love the characters and story line. It's funny and charming and... just go get it. If you don't like it, you can erase it from your hard drive, and I won't speak with you ever again, because you are obviously a person for whom all joy has left the world.
Seriously, its not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but its only fair that Destructoid is aware that this classic from at least my childhood is back and prettier than ever.
Once I have played enough to give a proper review I will share one of my fondest memories with the community in greater detail. In the meantime... visit the land of Shapier, the home of the lithe katta, mysterious mages, faithful Saureses, and.. X-Ray Specs.
