(re: Like William Shatner’s infamous trekkie convention sketch on SNL…) Alright I moved your post, as this trailer was already announced by someone else. It is fun. I put these posts in the “Fan Games” area even though it’s not strictly a fan game, it’s a “fan” creation and it’s a trailer for a “game.”
Now I’ll wait for the next 3 people to announce this 🙂

As is the fate of all those who don’t keep up with every post on every board, I offer my apologies. I thought since Al just announced it on his daily email that it was brand new.

They’ve put the game up:
It even has save and load capabilities as well as an auto-map feature.
It’s very tongue-in-cheek, but the obvious reminiscing on the part of the authors is nice.

(re: Peasent’s Quest Trailer) It’s also a real tribute (and pardoy) to King’s quest in the sense that the puzzels are maddeningly hard.
But if you look around and try to take random objects,t he game always tells you you’re having a hard time figuring out the puzzels 😉

I finished it last night! Very funny. I found it rather amusing the way they poke fun at themselves and at the old conventions of the 80’s style Sierra adventure games. It’s all a lot of fun.
Some quite tricky parts where I got stuck for a while, but I got there in the end.
I’m not sure whether there are multiple endings, but I certainly didn’t “win like a hero” in the end, but I think that’s just part of the humour.
I’d recommend to anyone with a sense of humour and a love of the old adventure games to play it.

(re: Peasent’s Quest – The Game) Peasant’s Quest is brilliant! Homestarrunner is a very popular site and it would be really cool if it sparks interest in the older games, justifying Sierra rereleasing these old games through downloads or retail.
On a sidenote I’ve always been trying to get my brother into the Homestarrunner site and the humor. And he never paid much attention to it but he played through Peasant’s Quest and thought it was a riot. That being said, I hope that Trogdor never burninates Daventry.
I’m curious, any word on what Roberta thinks of this game?

I had the opportunity to interview the Peasant’s Quest team for Adventure Gamers. It was fun to hear their Sierra memories and their reasons for making an AGI game.

I cannot possibly see someone being a diehard fan of the origonal KQ and not Loving this little game! It was fantastic to play. I was suprised I still have my adventure skills. What a great game. Did anyone notice that the cheated a bit on graphics, like nightfall. They didn’t exactly use the 16 color pallet. I’m glad they did this. I downloaded the .swf to my harddrive and added it to my KQ collection. It may not be an actual KQ game, but I feel that it is now part of the same realm to some degree. Thank you guys at Homestar Runner What a great game. Please don’t stop here, make more!!! And share that Flash Based game engine, it’s great.

I felt the same way – very proud of myself for still being able to play a text parser game after all these years.
