Wizard and the Princess was Sierra's second adventure game. It was the first adventure game with color graphics. Wizard and the Princess was the inspiration for the King's Quest series, and it would later become an official King's Quest Prequel after King Graham visited Serenia in King's Quest V.
It was released as part of Sierra's Hi-Res Adventures series as Hi-Res Adventure #2. It was renamed Adventure in Serenia when it was released for the IBM-PC.
