King's Quest Odd Facts
« on: August 05, 2005, 08:02:02 AM »
Jesse came up with this idea (and most of the facts), but I stepped up to the plate to create a thread about it :P Anyway, anyone notice the number of islands in the King's Quest series?

KQ 1: Get to island via eagle
KQ 2: Get to island via fish.
KQ 4: Get to island via swimming or jumping or placing board.
KQ 5: Get to islands via boat
KQ 6: Get to islands via magic map.
KQ 7: No islands, but get to Etheria via horse. Or maybe that rock you hop on when the river is still mud. :beach:
MoE: Get to island in the sky via portals


What other weird/odd KQ facts have you seen in the series?

Most people probably know these:

Alexander was voiced by Robbie Benson, the same voice actor who played the Beast in Beauty and the Beast.

The pawn shop owner in KQ6 is one of the few persons of color in the King's Quest series.  (Lolotte does not count.  :P)

KQ2: Looking in the hole in the rock on the top of the mountain shows a quick preview of Space Quest I. Also, the Batmobile from the original 60's Batman series occasionally comes out of Hagatha's cave. And finally, the game's title "Romancing the Throne" was taken from an 80's Indiana Jones style movie called "Romancing the Stone".

Titles like that are everywhere.

KQ5: Absences makes the heart go yonder
KQ6: Heir Today Gone Tommorrow (which by the way is the name of a hair salon (hair today gone tomorrow)
KQ7: The Princeless Bride (The Princess Bride A GREAT movie)

For King's Quest 7 I thought Valenice had to go to an island with that lady in a block of ice.  :P

Yeah. That's true. Valenice did have to go to the island in dreamland. I agree with Awesomeaspossum, the movie the princess Bride is incredible. What I also noticed is that if you play KQ7 through, look at the credits. Almost everyone has multiple roles especially these two guys: Joe Paulino (The jeweler troll, The spider, Count Tsepish,Mr. Nibbler,) and Roger Jackson (Cuddles, The kangaroo rat, All three heads of the hydra plant, Snake oil salesman, Ghoul Kid 1), also notice, Carol Bach y Rita plays Valenice, she also plays Lady Ceres. First sign of madness...

I agree with Deloria, The graphics are excellent and the storyline is Great. Personally I have never watched the Princess bride, but it sounds like a good film.  ;)

what's up with all the "heir" titles? It seems that every game with Alexander has "heir" in the title. Heir today, gone tomorrow, to heir is human... come on, get some originality!

Yes! That's brilliant! In fact, you should even make a game to go with that title. ;P

Yeah it is. My fav. part is when you enter Falderal you can see Count Fifi De Yipyap chasing his tail. At the end of the sequence when he finishes talking to Valenice he finally catches and bites it. I used to have a dog who did that, even when it hurt her when she bit into it she kept at it.

Everyone probably noticed this, but the same woman who voices Valanice in KQ7 (Carol Bach y Rita) also voices Malicia!  ;D
My namesake is the one you'll love to hate
Maybe it's because she's different--not the same
And such an identity satisfies my artistic brain...

I talked to the Mockingbird 50 times and these are the insults he spit out:
Insults
1.   You smell like a pair of armoured trousers after a hundred years war.
2.   Cover your face your scaring the horses.
3.   When you were born the Midwife slapped your Mother.
4.   You must have fallen out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
5.   When you were a kid, your mom had to tie a leg of mutton around your neck to get the dogs to play with you.
6.   Whoa, either the plague wagon just drove by or you really need a bath.
7.   Your parents tried to throw you to the wolves but the wolves threw you back.
8.   Is that your face or are you eating a mincemeat pie?
9.   When you were born the midwife saved the bathwater and threw you out the window.
10.   If you were on fire I wouldn’t lay an egg on you to put you out.
11.   Is that your nose or are you eating a turnip.
12.   Most babies are found under a cabbage leaf, you were found under a stinkweed.
13.   You smell so bad even the pig boy avoids your company.
14.   You’re so ugly that you have to sneak up on a glass of water.
15.   Was your mother frightened by a warthog, when she was carrying you?
16.   Did your parents lose a bet with an evil magician?
17.   You’re so dumb the village idiot will not ask you for directions.
18.   Only your varicose veins save you from being completely colourless.
19.   You are so dumb that you cannot even entertain a dope.
20.   You light up the room whenever you leave it.
21.   You are almost as exciting as a fat lap dog right after dinner.
22.   Your mouth is do big you can whisper in your own ear.
23.   You are so boring even your own shadow will not keep you company.
24.   The only thing that can stay in your head for more than an hour is a cold.
25.   You cannot count to twenty without taking your shoes off.
26.    The only way you could broaden your mind is to put it under a wagon wheel.
27.   When there is an idea in your head it is in solitary confinement.
28.   If you had a little more sense you would be a halfwit.
29.   When you walk into a room, the mice scream and jump on chairs.
30.   The day you arrived, your father went out and shot the stork.
31.   You have the face of a saint, a Saint Bernard.
32.    You have a very striking face. How many times have you been struck there anyway?
33.   You must not be two-faced, because if you had two then why would you be wearing that one?
34.   Why don’t you send your wits out to be sharpened?
35.   Are you going on a trip? You sure have big bags under your eyes.
36.   I never forget a face, but in your case I will make an exception.
37.   I have two minutes to kill, tell me everything you know.
38.   You have a pretty, little head. For a head it is pretty little.
39.   When your time comes thousands of people will attend your funeral, to make sure that you are really dead!
40.   Is that your head or is your neck blowing a bubble?
41.   When you arrived, the stork flew around your house for a week, before he had the nerve to drop you off.
42.   Be careful not to let your mind wander, it is too little to go out alone.
43.   You have a face like a flower, a cauliflower.
44.   I feel sorry for your little mind, all alone in that big fat head!
45.   Are those your ears or flyswatters?
46.   Your parents almost lost you as a child unfortunately they did not take you far enough into the woods.
47.   Didn’t I meet you in a nightmare?
48.   Why don’t you go hang around with the village idiot so that you have someone to look up to?
49.   You must be a big cheese, you certainly smell like one.
50.   Keep those legs covered, the chicken killer is in town.
