The thing I'll never forget about King's Quest
4 was the interface. Unlike most other Sierra point and click
games, KQ 4 made you type in everything you wanted to do. Like Zork
, but with graphics. Being the randy
9 year old I was, of course the first thing I typed was a curse
. Sierra, knowing damn well that just about everyone would do this, had funny reactions for just about every bad word
mind could come up with. Stuff like "This is a family game!".
Also amusing was commanding Rosella to undress. The game would respond "Rosella is not that kind of girl!"
