922297-sierra2

Like the phoenix from the ashes of its own pyre, Sierra, the classic game company best known for titles such as King’s Quest, has been reborn as a label of Activision Blizzard. According the announcement, the newly launched brand will focus on helping indie gaming studios to develop both new Intellectual Properties and reimaginings of classic games people have come to expect from the Sierra brand name.

It was also revealed that a new game in the long running King’s Quest RPG series is in development as well. Developed by the indie studio the Odd Gentlemen, the new title will feature a story in which King Graham, the greatest adventurer who ever lived, shares his story with his granddaughter, Gwendolyn.

The news has been met with much acclaim from the gaming community, and even drew praise from Sierra’s original found, Ken Williams. “We’re very proud of what we created all those years ago with Sierra Online, and today’s news about carrying Sierra forward as an indie-specific brand is very encouraging.” Williams SAID. “We look forward to seeing Sierra’s independent spirit live on, and are especially excited to see what the Odd Gentlemen will Do with King’s Quest.”

The first title to be released under the Sierra banner will be Geometry Wars3: Dimensions, a fast paced shooter developed by Lucid Games.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
