AGD Interactive (formerly Tierra Entertainment), the fan group who remade the first two King’s Quest games and Quest for Glory II with VGA graphics and a point-and-click interface, is putting the finishing touches on yet another free Sierra adventure game remake: King’s Quest III Redux for PC and Mac.
AGDI also announced that King’s Quest III Redux will be the studio’s final Sierra remake, after which the studio plans to focus on commercial games.
Like AGDI’s remakes of King’s Quest I: Quest for the Crown and King’s Quest II: Romancing the Stones, King’s Quest III Redux will be free to download and is designed to run on modern computers glitch-free.
Wight years in the making, King’s Quest III Redux will be modernized with enhance dvisuals (including hand-painted backgrounds and character portraits), full voice acting (including former Sierra employee Josh Mandel reprising his role as King Graham), lip sync, digital soundtracks, and a point-and-click interface.
The game should be out in early- to mid-February from AGDInteractive.com.
