King's Quest III And Mage's Initiation

Posters! We all love posters, right?

Himalaya Studios, who is also behind AGDI, has released its remake of King's Quest III, which updates graphics, music, adds voice acting (including the voice of Lori Cole!), and overhauls the UI to the later Sierra titles' point-and-click interface. Voi la! You can download that here.

Furthermore, there's a poster with it! While the fine folk over there claim it is free, we all know that there is no such thing as a free pre-order bonus, which is exactly what it is (seriously, if I see free and then paid right beneath it, it isn't free--it's additional). The poster itself is what you can see to your right over there--as someone who bought (and still hasn't played) their last poster-game tie-in for the Quest for Glory II re-release, I can highly recommend their product in that regard. You'll have to decide if the poster itself is to your taste--and can find out more about it in particular over here.

The pre-order pertains to Himalaya Studios' new game: Mage's Initiation. The latter interests me, primarily because it hopes to continue the genre-blend I so loved in the Quest for Glory series: adventure point-n-click and RPG character building and customization. That pre-order, when it is fully set up, will include the above mentioned poster alongside: "a printed map of the land of Iginor, an archaic spell book page, 3 character trading cards, [and] a Mage's Initiation poster."

As for the title itself:

D'Arc is sixteen years old. He has trained extensively in the elemental arts for the past decade of his young life, under the discerning eyes of the Mage Masters of Iginor. Confined to an existence of academics and magical mastery in their towering hall, the inquisitive initiate often wonders what it would be like to set foot outside in the world that he has been secluded from; a world that his Masters deeply shun.

Instead of choosing classes, as you would in QFG, you will instead be selected by elements of fire, water, air, and earth based on your actions throughout the game.

As the title is set to release in late 2012, if you want to be reminded, I might recommend either signing up for their 'pre-order' newsletter or following their Twitter account.

Just finished the AGDI remake. It is wonderful! The new plot points make the game even more compelling, and fix several plot holes.
