Has anyone played this game? I've heard it is "creepy," but can't find any information here at 'Boomers about the game.

Thanks, both of you. I am SO glad I queried this before going any further. I don't mind horror games and have played a few, but the pixelated nature of this one would have been a huge disappointment. Unlike you, Marian, I have never gone back to play the early King's Quest games, even though I played them at the time they were released and enjoyed them all. Just too hard on my old eyes now.

I understand that, Reenie; I don't mind games that look dated, but if it's too hard on the eyes that's another thing altogether. wave12

It is a sad fact that age does begin to enter into things. Although my vision is corrected with up to date specs, it still is not quite as good as when I was 30, and my eyes get tired if I stare at minutiae for a long period. I need a stronger light to read a book now as well, so "dark" game environments are challenging. d I cannot tolerate fast-paced action/arcade stuff anymore because my reflexes are slower. I wonder how many other 'Boomers are in the "retired" ranks and are finding their game choices changing? Hmmmm. A topic for the Mixed Bag forum. LOL

I can't tolerate the graphics either. It makes me nauseous trying to focus. I don't have any other eye troubles, but the latest craze of return to pixelated games is something I just don't understand. duh12

Same here. Maybe it is just the nostalgia. I have played a couple of older games again (not as old at the early King's Quest) because I remembered how much I enjoyed them. They were still good, but not "good enough," if you know what I mean. I now content myself with looking back in fondness. kissy

Different things bother different people. I'm not bothered by pixel size, but there are a LOT of new games I can't play because of FPS-style 3D movement, jerking camera movements, and excessive lighting effects. So I'm glad there are some developers who are making "retro" style games with static screens that don't flash, hurt my eyes, and give me nausea like many newer games do.

Jenny, I don't even know what FPS-style means. LOL But I do know I would not like flash-cuts, and jerking camera stuff. There is way too much of that in films and TV. I am so glad that jiggle-cam seems to be fading in popularity. That stuff is so hard to watch!
