Is it me or does the game look like there's a lot of platform-like action to it? I know Sierra often used action sequences in their games and trailers are notorious for glossing over anything that doesn't involve pure action, but it doesn't quite say "this is King's Quest!" to me.

If by making it for PlayStation and platformy they think thy can appeal to a wider audience they will surely risk loosing both audiences. Their approach is something that you might have expected a decade ago, but let's not forget why Activision is loosening the reins on the Sierra IPs. Kickstarter has proven that there is an audience for adventures. A few action sequences in an otherwise pure adventure is one thing, but the impression that the trailer gave is not promising. PC/Droid/iOS are the platforms that would attract the real customer base and are more suited to adventures.

I wonder, though: would it actually be possible for there to be a game that doesn't elicit that reaction? A game that anyone could look at and would conclude that it's definitely a real KQ game? I suspect the answer is actually "no". The series isn't particularly well-defined. The world-building and characterization are next to non-existent, and the gameplay comes down to mostly "adventure game" (or, if we want to get really precise, "Sierra adventure game"). That makes it hard to identify what the essence of a King's Quest game is, beyond superficial things like "It says 'King's Quest' on the box".

I'd be very surprised if anything we saw in it was gameplay with control over the character. I am thinking that there'll be some action elements in the game, though, but that the adventure aspect will be much more prominent.
