AGD Interactive makes and remakes graphic adventure games that were gold to the Sierra company back in the 90s. Their first release was the remake of Roberta Williams’ King’s Quest. Unlike most of LucasArts’ adventures, Sierra’s adventures held consequences for misusing items or being in the wrong place at the wrong time. This game was remade for fans of adventure games or fans of early gaming nostalgia.
In Quest for Glory II, you’re in the land of Shapeir and now the hero throughout the land. The city is threatened by four evil elements and it’s your job to defend it since you’re the hero and all. Oh, and Shapeir’s neighboring city’s Emir Arus al-Din is missing and you’ll need to help him too. It’s a load of fictional fun and graphic adventure goodness!
Last year, Bethesda released their classic Elder Scrolls titles for free. These two gems are much like their predecessors but with a little more freedom and a bigger scale to explore. Daggerfall is one of the biggest worlds to explore in gaming, even today.
If you’re not running on a system that supports DOS, you’ll want to use DOSBox (try a Frontend if you don’t like reading). This DOS emulator will allow you to play any classic PC game. If you’re on a Mac, I’d recommend Boxer since it’s even easier to use.

Welcome to a new feature on There Will Be Blood. called “Free Game Fridays“. I’ll find the best (or worst) games every Friday that are completely free and legal to download and play. First up is a classic PC game called Starsiege: Tribes. Tribes was a king of capture the flag and vehicles back in it’s time (1998) and still has people playing today! There’s no single player, but since it’s older, it doesn’t have stupid login screens as well. It’s just as simple as downloading, picking you name, and playing. There’s several modes: Capture the Flag, Deathmatch, Capture & Hold, and more. It’s terrific fun.
