ONCE UPON A POINT & CLICK: THE TALE OF KING'S QUEST, GABRIEL KNIGHT, & THE QUEENS OF ADVENTURE GAMES

David L. Craddock



 

Once upon a time, video games did not tell stories. They were games of skill. Before that, they were experiments and military tests. As technology advanced, two women dreamed of making games that went beyond shooting down spaceships and setting high scores.


Once Upon a Point and Click charts the careers of Sierra designers Roberta Williams and Jane Jensen, from the origins of graphical adventures to the merger of computer games and Hollywood cinematography that paved a path for the interactive stories of today.
