Hello! I’m so glad I found this forum – Ken and Roberta, thank you both so much for all the wonderful games, particularly the King’s Quest series which was so foundational to my childhood.
Some of my earliest memories are of playing King’s Quest IV at age 5 (and of course many times since then) – I definitely gained a lot of spelling skills from typing commands like “Look Under Bridge” while honing my reading skills! I got so many laughs and thrills from these wonderful adventures. I love all the KQ games, and Laura Bow, and so many more, but upon replaying them all I’m particularly struck by what a masterpiece King’s Quest VI is in its animation, storytelling, and music.
Seeing Roberta’s name on the credits of these games which were so central to my life and imagination was definitely a benefit to my perspective on what women could create and achieve. I can’t wait to share them with my own kids someday. Thank you!

Sorry to dissapoint you but Roberta didn’t do anything
Not program, make art, make music or anything
She just invented a story
The game itself is written by professionals
Ken & Roberta just hired the best professionals. Therefor THEIR names should be praised

Thank you Ann!
As was said, we were lucky to have teams with amazing programmers, artists, musicians, tech writers, QA people and more. Sierra’s success had made it “the place” where the best people wanted to be. It was an incredible place to work! We miss those days.

Roberta YOU are our hero!
Happy New Year Year Roberta!
It is an honor to E-Meet you here at the beginning of a great new year. I hope this message finds you well and feeling encouraged.
My name is Vladimir, and I am a filmmaker and Game Tester.
I started this podcast called HEROES OF GAMING where we interview the REAL HEROES which is not the gamers, it’s incredible people like you. The people that make it happen should be celebrated for their work! We wanted to create a special venue where that reverence for you and your craft can be honored.
I would firstly like to thank you.
For all the work, toil, effort, frustration, sleepless nights, and motivation for contributing to all the games you are a part of throughout your career.
I would like to humbly request for an hour of your time (February or March) to join us on the podcast to discuss the world you lived in. Educate people on the complexities of that profession with the amazing historically significant choices you made. Through your voice we can discover your passion for this field, your work that led you to where you are, and your future of what you plan to do.
Or anything (including your book) that you would like to promote.
We have been raised on many of the fine products at Sierra, but none have made their impact like your works, especially the King’s Quest Series.
We know (and are huge fans of) your talents and l am grateful for opportunity to reach out for your consideration. Our email we have put below as well so we can more efficiently communicate/schedule should you like to jump on a skype call with us for the chat.
Thank you so much for everything Roberta!
Faith and Honor,
Vlad and Hans
