I don't mind dying in adventure games, though they should have quick-save keys or an auto-save before dying.
AFAIK, all sierra adventures even the earliest KQ1 had quick save and quick load, in addition to normal saves and loads.

I don't really remember... you might be right and I just didn't know at the time or something.

I have very fond memories of Sierra games... I even 'applied' to them when I was like 12... Even the company's 'back story' was great... Husband/wife gamer team that started it up... Good stuff...

Also why I taught myself to code, and ended up a developer...

And KQ1 was my first PC game, at least on my own system, which I bought after conning my parents, which had stated, when they got me my very own laptop (not a notebook, 9+ lbs), and was told very sternly that it was for school, and not for games, and also that I shouldn't open it up and play with it (was into electronics at the time too heh).

Anyhow, I showed my mother Wheel of Fortune for the PC and suggested she get it for herself, which of course 'broke the no game agreement' for the system, and I went off to Radio Shack shortly after for KQ1, where I ended up buying a whole bunch of other Sierra games over the year(s) (A few KQs, all the Quest for Glory's (the first with the original name), Manhunter 1/2 I think it was called, Space Quest 3...)

And this concludes today's edition of lamenting youth ; )

In the screenshots the graphics look clean and crisp, when I run the game it looks just like the original did.

What am I doing wrong?
I imagine the screenshots are lower resolution. But also if I remember right there's settings in the game setup thing.

What I really hated about early Sierra games was how you could miss something early on and then find out that screws you 3 hours later. That kind of design should be banned.

That kind of thing still happens today I think. The difference is that it's no longer intentional.

My most memorable moment in a Sierra adventure game was a death. I flushed the toilet in the sleazy bar at the beginning of Leisure Suit Larry 1. The bathroom filled up with water and I drowned to death. I was absolutely thrilled. One of my finest gaming moments.

I don't mind dying in adventure games, though they should have quick-save keys or an auto-save before dying. Adventure games should really be stress-free.

Sierra games you could die, Lucasarts games you could not (generally).

You know, from what I remember, you are absolutely correct. Always remembered being afraid of dying in the King's Quest and Leisure Suit Larry games as a kid, where I don't remember anything too terrible ever happening in games Sam&Max and Monkey Island.

Sierra games you could die, Lucasarts games you could not (generally). Modern games usually follow the Lucasarts method, which for this genre I do think is better.

Yeah a little late--I've already finished this redux version last month. But still, it is noteworthy news for the peeps who don't know about it.

Wasn't this already posted a month ago? Somehow I already have this. The file is dated Feb. 28, and I don't know where else I would have heard about it.

Just for your info (maybe you know, maybe you don't), they have done King's Quest I Enhanced, King's Quest II Enhanced, King's Quest III Redux, and Quest for Glory II Enhanced. Guess what? They are free downloads. So hopefully they will also remake 5 and 6, and hopefully they will also be free.
