these words in, thinking if this day was ever to come. The production
is over, the testers are done and everything is ready to go. King’s
Quest III has finally been released. Remember this date, the 19th of
June. The day KQ3 was released!
It’s been twenty years since the evil wizard Manannan first appeared on
our computer screens, but now, thanks to the hard work and dedication
of the team at Infamous Adventures, he’s back!
Kings Quest 3 : To Heir is Human was first released by Sierra
On-Line back in 1986. As the second sequel to the hugely popular and
successful Kings Quest series, it fast became a fan favourite. Roberta
Williams, author of the Kings Quest series, broke new ground in
computer games, introducing players to the magic map concept (making
travel quicker between screens), timed puzzles and an in-depth spell
casting system. All these things are standard fare in today’s games,
but were original concepts in 1986.
Unfortunately, due to the advances made in computer technology
over the last twenty years, such classic games no longer run on the
modern computer. It was with this in mind that Infamous Adventures
decided to remake this game, bringing it up to the quality of Kings
Quest 5 & 6. Klytos, Executive Producer of IA’s Kings Quest 3 had
this to say. “We just love this game and felt that even twenty years
later the story was relevant and, more importantly, still fun. We
wanted to introduce a new generation of gamers to this classic and show
older players who remember the original something new and special. We
think we’ve done this, but it’s up to the fans to tell us what they
Boasting all new full VGA backgrounds, enhanced hand-drawn
close up cut-scenes, dialog portraits for all the characters, original
music by our professional composer, full speech pack (including
narrator) and a new point-and-click interface, make Infamous
Adventures’ remake of Kings Quest III one of the best remakes on the
fan-game market. And the best part is, it’s free!

We would love to give a huge thanks to everyone involved in
this project, too many to name but you know who you are. Yet that’s not
it, it’s you the fans who kept us going. We would love to give you the
biggest of thanks out of anyone, I mean if we just had tumbleweed as
support I don’t think we’d have got very far. Anyway, I know you want
to play the game. Well, go right ahead.
The voice pack will be released next week, we didn’t want you guys
to wait any longer. Don’t worry, you won’t have to redownload the game
just for the voice pack. Just simply add the file to the program and
boom, you’re off!
Again, I’d like to say thanks to everyone who contributed, whether it be the team or the fans, this game is for you. Enjoy.
