Editor notes (2)

King's Quest was created for the PCjr and Sierra staked the company on it. The PCjr was canceled, but, Tandy cloned the design and King's Quest instead, debuted as a Tandy 1000 pack-in game specifically designed for Tandy's 16 color graphics and 3 voice sound. This entry is about the later MS-DOS specific version with additional sound and graphics options. Eventually there was a VGA patch. There was a much later DOS remake with another engine.
