Hey, it’s that game that’s like chess except you battle each other! You know, Archon!
Note: For some reason none of the game audio was recorded. Therefore, I put some background music in the video. I couldn’t find any remixes of Archon, though, so I made my own! Listen to it here!
King’s Quest II VGA Doodles
King’s Quest II VGA
AGD Interactive remade King’s Quest II and revamped the entire storyline, so we played it. Now with 500% more cutscenes!
See the doodles!
Part 1: King Graham sets out to Kolyma to avoid marrying his royal vizier, I mean, find his true love.
Part 2: We go TO THE LIBRARY! We also get the plot of the game from Dan Rock and talk to a merchant with an accent even more racist than our own!
Part 3: After searching every log in the kingdom, Graham helps a pumpkin from Brooklyn and makes out with a mermaid. Hot pixel action!
Part 4: King Graham infiltrates the Sharkee kingdom and makes it to the Willamette Valley. Dink. Donk. AM I NOT MERCIFUL?!?!? Also, Batman happens.
Part 5: We find a genie lamp, but the genie has been set free. Which is too bad, because I would’ve wished for a computer that DOESN’T CRASH!
Part 6: To defeat an enchanter, King Graham tries to be a spellcaster like his son eventually will be, but soon decides “screw it” and pulls a sword on him instead. A wizard, he ain’t! Then we talk to a pegasus in a slightly less contrived way than the original game had us do.
Part 7: King Graham takes a multiple-choice test to prove our worth to a cloud, and also spoils several games down the line. Not cool, game. Then we have to pray just to make it today!
Part 8: It wouldn’t be a King’s Quest game without a random maze that kills you for no reason. Also we rob a dorf. Uh, dwarf.
Part 9: Good thing Grandma lived long enough for an exposition Powerpoint presentation before kicking it. Speaking of the dead, here’s an off-brand Dracula!
Part 10: After dreaming of the end credits pop song, Graham ups his indirect kill count by at least two. And you thought Grandma’s exposition was long-winded when she was *alive*…
Part 11: Between the bookshelf puzzle and the gravedigging, I think this completes my Sierra Bingo Card!
Part 12: After a pixel hunting nightmare, Graham finally gets the Count’s tiara for him. Now he can be pretty! Also, the most anticlimactic end to a quest ever.
Part 13: After an encounter with a sly little chap that breaks the laws of the universe, Graham plants the seeds for at least five crossover fanfics (six, if you count Indiana Jones).
Part 14: In the finale, Graham finds the love of his life, kills off polyjuiced Hermione, has a wedding ceremony attended by a lot of undead and also Batman, and proceeds to battle a series of deviantart drawings. Then he is cursed to live out at least five more King’s Quest games!
