Introduction



In the last game, King Graham got the girl and returned from Kolyma with enough diamond and sapphire studded jewelry to start a collection. By all accounts, he earned his happy ending. So instead of being a direct sequel to the aforementioned happy ending, King's Quest III is set many years down the road and stars Gwydion a teenage boy enslaved to a powerful wizard named Manannan.

The game still uses the AGI text parser engine, so no new technological innovations for us to marvel at. Actually, that's a lie. There's one new innovation: copy protection. This game makes extensive use of copy protection that can only be found in the manual. I've got a method for showing it off when the time comes, so don't worry.

Spoilers

Unlike the first two games, this one actually has a plot that unfolds as we progress. So for the sake of those who have not played this before, please don't be a dick y'all. Use spoiler tags if you absolutely have to talk about something that we haven't seen yet.
