A King's Quest Fan Site
« on: 26 Sep 2017, 09:06 »
Hey everyone  :grin:

I'm a big fan of the King's Quest games.  Who doesn't love King Graham, Queen Valanice, Prince Alexander, and Princess Rosella?  :cheesy:

I've been working on a fan site recently, with several reviews & walkthroughs.  It's still a work in progress, but I hope to also include KQ demos, teaser trailers, maps, art, and other things as well.  :grin:

It would be great if some of you could have a look at it, and see what you think.  :cool:

Also, if any of you has KQ-related stuff you're willing to share, I'd love to have it on my site.  :cheesy:
You could post here, or send me a PM.


The Daventry Chronicles can be found here

Congratulations on the website! I love King's Quest and everything relate to the series.

From first glance, the website doesn't look like it belongs to KQ! It kind of looks high tech IMO. You could benefit from the KQ time era theme and use magic scrolls for menus and some torches for decoration.

It's a WIX site so it's basically a Template with some restrictions...

Still, looks good for a start..

AnusAbdin, I wanted to have scrolls and stuff, but as Slasher pointed out, I'm restricted  :undecided:

Thanks both of you

Nice site! The maps and walkthroughs look very well made.
I've bookmarked it, it'll be useful if I replay a King's Quest game (those dead ends can be really frustrating. And some puzzles... bloody custard pie!). And it made me realise that I never played King's Quest VII!

I wanted to have scrolls and stuff, but as Slasher pointed out, I'm restricted
That's too bad! I would add a few images in the articles, if it's possible. For example, I was reading the KQ 7 review, and I was curious about the different graphical style of the game: it would've been nice to see some screenshot in the page!

Hi.

I'v spotted in wix that you can open an HTML editor so you can add/tweak stuff with html code.

Thanks Slasher

I'll look into it, but I think I'll concentrate on content first.  :smiley:


And thanks Lorenzo, I'm glad you like it.  :grin:
Yeah, those dead ends can be such a pain!  Especially in KQ5.  :shocked:

If you're looking for abandoned fangames, we still have our pages for King's Quest III+ and King's Quest 2.5 (which is the predecessor to A Tale of Two Kingdoms).

Your KQ 2.5 demo doesn't work.  An Error popup appears as soon as the game starts, then it crashes.  :cry:

I know I will probably sound like an asshole, but I am seriously considering making a big meme-like picture "...and error message is..." (with John Cena face), and then post it whenever someone tells there was an error without mentioning any more details :tongue:

Ok, this turns out to be a compatibility issue between AGS2 and AGS3; the game runs fine with the AGS2 executable. I've repackaged it so you can download it again.

It's been a long time since I played King's Quest.  :)
The particle effects are really cool on the page - I know it's just a template, but still.

KQ3+ keeps crashing  :sad:

On Day 1, when I go into the office, and try to get the green book about magic from the bookshelf, and it crashes. 
Is it compatibility issue, like KQ2.5?  :confused:
