Other Worlds
Apprentice
KQ2 1/4
KQ2 VGA
KQ1 VGA
Hero of Infamous Kingdoms
Gaea Fallen
Principles of Evil
Black Cauldron remake
Quest for Glory 4.5 was fairly humerous, although I wouldn't recommend it

Queen of *all* Albion

Hero of Infamous Kingdoms was funny. XD

I've never heard of a few of those though.

Know of any good fangames that are similar to Gabriel Knight?

Personally, I liked:
...KQ2 1/4...

Really? :X


I haven't played many fan games, but I recommend almost all of those I have played:

KQ1VGA - Well, if you liked the original, you'd love this one!

KQ2+ - This one needs no introduction... by far the best fan game I've played, and probably the best one out there ATM  :thumbsup:

KQ3VGA - Again, if you liked the original... :D

QFG 4.5 - Wouldn't recommend this to anyone with taste :X

SQ0: Replicated - Gives you the feel of the early SQ's, mainly because it shamelessly plagiarizes them ;P

Larry 2 Point & Click remake - Same game, different interface - mainly for those who needed an excuse to replay the game, like me, or for people who don't mind old games but can't be bothered with word-hunting.

Five Magical Amulets - Albeit completely original, this game is heavily influenced by the King's Quest and Kyrandia series. While the quality of its' graphics, plot and dialogue is better left unmentioned, it does have a certain naive charm about it which compells you to keep on playing, even when all logic and reason scream for you to quit :P

Hero of Infamous Kingdoms - No, seriously... if you've got 10 minutes to spare, I guess there are worse things you can with them beside getting through this humorous demo ;P

Peasent Quest - The funniest KQ parody out there ;)

Hugo 1-3 - Only for those of you saying to themselves "I wish they made more AGI games, ones that try to be mysterious like Laura Bow and funny like Monkey Island, but fail miserably" :thumbsdown:

Mythmaster: A Vagabond's Adventure - Qnly for those with masochistic tendencies and a severe EGA nostalgia fit :wall:

It filled in the gaps and you actually saw when Alexander was kidnapped and what measures they took to find him, it needed some explanation. It was a bit lacking, (like Graham saying "Why don't you go off and find him" instead of taking any real measures) but there was one humerous deathscene that really made it worthwhile. Granted the dying-and-getting-into-the-well thing was somewhat illogical, but the series needed something.

Whether the series needed something there or not is debateable, but from what I heard of this game... it's definitely not what it needed :P

Hi you guys. I'm new here, and this is the first time I've posted on an internet forum. I've been following the work of POS since they started up because I played my first adventure game "KG 5" in the 90's and I've been hooked ever since.
You mentioned "KG 2 1/4" but I've been unable to find this game. Also, do you know where I could find the walkthrough for "Other Worlds"?
I can't wait to play "TSL", its demo was torture.

KQ1VGA wasn’t too bad but is still a little buggy
KQ2VGA I thought was VERY good. ;D :thumbsup:
I just found KQ3 VGA last night I thing it came out on the 19th but there are a few bugs so I’ll wait for the patch and the voice pack to come out before I play it.

Hero of Infamous Kingdoms I just found last night too. I’ll try that soon after I finish the original KQIII
QFG4.5 I’ve had for a while but I don’t know if I want to play it. QFG is one of my favorite games but this is supposed to have some vulgar humor and that’s just not how I want to remember the series. :-[
I think I downloaded a SQ game as well but haven’t gotten around to that either. Too many other things to do.

I haven’t heard of KQ2 ¼ where is that and how good is it? ???

Wing Commander has some nice fan made games
WC Unknown Enemy
WC Standoff (Very GOOD) ;D
WC Sage yet to come out.

Thanks for the link, Deloria. I'm gonna check it out right now.

Also, I'm playing Hero of the Infamous Kingdoms, and I can't figure out the answer to the third riddle. The riddle was about something that would rise again from the dead, and that it didn't bite a man unless the man bit it first...I'm completely confused. (I thought it might be a hot pepper, but it wasn't.)

I was actually able to figure out the last two riddles from "Hero of Infamous Kingdoms" on my own (Yay me!). Anyway, now I can't make the herring red.
Also, I was able to find the walkthrough to "Other Worlds", but I was not able to find "KQ2 1/4." I went to the AGS website, their Main Games Page, and their games digest page, which lists all their games in alphebatical order.
It read...Kings of Rock
             King's Quest I VGA
             King's Quest II+VGA
             King's Quest III
             Knight's Quest III-Tides of Merania
Where exactly do you go on the AGS website to find "King's Quest 2 1/4"?

Disregard my last post. I just read Shades2585 post, and I know where to find "KQ2 1/4." So...anyone know how to turn the herring red in HotIK?

You don't. :) A red herring is another name for a side issue or a false lead. There are no red herrings, you'll have to find another way past the knight...
BTW, you can edit your posts with the modify button instead of posting twice :).

Okay fine :P
