King's Quest V

King's Quest V: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder, was the fifth game in the King's Quest series. King Graham must search for and defeat an evil wizard who has stolen his castle and his family.

King's Quest V is now supported by ScummVM, a program designed to let 2D adventure games run on multiple platforms. With ScummVM, King's Quest V now runs on modern versions of windows, as well as Linux, Mac OS X, and many consoles such as Dreamcast, Wii, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable. For a complete list of platforms supported by ScummVM, see here.

In 2007, a fan demake was released by Steve Lingle, converting King's Quest V into a text adventure.

This fan demake is available for free here.
