King’s Quest V: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder


Annoying owls and hot pixel action! Which way to the bakehouse?

With special guest star The Sister!

See the doodles!


Part 1: Looks like some evil wizard doesn’t share our love of square castles!

Part 2: Cedric the owl becomes obsessed with the Bake House and its hot pixel action!

Aah! Life-giving Part 3! Nectar of the gods!

Part 4 contains this game’s ridiculous Moon Logic Puzzle. Well…one of them anyway (KQV is infamous for these, moreso than even other Sierra games). But this one involves honey!

Part 5: How many offensive stereotypes have YOU helped today? Be sure to describe it in the most ridiculously verbose way possible!

Part 6: Naked ladies! That oughta drive up our traffic! (Note: said ladies may or may not actually be hideous harpies with Lady Godiva hair and men’s voices.) Also, YONDAR’S THE CRYSTAL CAVE! THERE YOU WILL FHAND THE YETHIGVJKFSFLIEI

Part 7: In which Graham finally reaches Mordack’s island and navigates a maze filled with Space Invaders. Terrified Confusion!

Part 8: I hope you liked that maze, because it’s back for an encore! Also, we get to wait in a library for forever! Action-packed!


Part 9: The final showdown with Mordack results in a lazy deus ex machina for everyone! At least the castle is safe for square castle lovers everywhere. Also, there are like forty artists but only five programmers, which explains a lot.
