There isn't a specific narration for him, no.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I just finished episode 3, WHY IS IT OVER!?  I don't want it to be.  Really, I think you guys have done an amazing job.  You've stayed true to the original story and have brought Kings Quest back to life.  Love it! I absolutely can't wait until 4 comes out. 

You guys are awesome!

Just finished episode 3 and I am still like Wow!

I still had a few technical problems, which made it hard sometimes. All scenes in the village run very slowly and it is difficult to control the cursor. Graham sometimes refuses to move his legs and arms there and slides over the ground - one time even his feet were under the ground.
A funny thing happened at the tower. I had saved it once, immediately when I arrived there. When I loaded that file, I was all alone - no dragons - but I also could not get into the wagon.
Also the program seemed to need more and more memory and crashed a few times.

Nevertheless this was the best game I played for a long time, it is full of atmosphere and despite of the problems it was just fun. I don't know, if I am sad that I now have to wait a while for the next episode or if I am glad to have a break for some time. This game is addictive as can be.

If you ever plan to make a German translation, I would be glad, if I could help you there.

Thanks WildAlf! We are doing our best to make sure that Episode 4 doesn't suffer from the same bug issues. :) Glad you're enjoying the game so far!

I know I'm super late to the party, but I have some thoughts I'd like to share. XD

It's just a little thing, but the huge switch in gameplay
Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):
was something I really found interesting and I feel it contributed a lot to the excitement of both the chapter and that scene. It really was an interesting way of letting the mechanics (and not just the story) tell you that something wasn't quite right and nothing was as you're used to. I really loved it. :D

I agree. It made the episode even more exciting. Although it was frustrating to no end because I couldn't time the clicks just right and the shadow dragons would kill me!

That timing issue seems to be related to the engine, since the clicks don't always work well with other sequences, either. As poor Toegoff experienced in his LP.

Just finished episode 3 (well I got the last ingredient and then the game broke so I had to watch the ending on Youtube - thanks Kevin, whoever you are!!) and I LOVED it. It was so hard but I was determined not to cheat as I did so often when I played the first Kings Quest games (hey, I was only twelve when I played the first one, cut me some slack). I would never have finished it without the help of my best friend who was playing with me the entire time, he figured out a few things that had me stumped, and I figured out a few things that had him stumped!

It absolutely amazes me the quality of this game and the fact that you guys put it out for free. I can't wait until I get the baby to sleep tonight so I can start episode four.

Thank you so much guys, you rock!!
