King's Quest III Redux (Version 1.1) has been released for both PC and Mac!

You can download the latest versions from the King's Quest III Redux page on the AGDI website.

Important: Remember to uninstall any previous versions of King's Quest III Redux from your system prior to installing version 1.1. Save-game files are, unfortunately, not compatible between different game versions.

In this updated build, we've addressed the large majority of bugs that have been reported to us on the forums since the game's initial release. We have also implemented some of the better/more useful feature requests that have been suggested along the way.

Hope you like the improvements and fixes!

Awesome! Thank you so much for this awesome game and continued support

I want to point out, though, that the link http://www.agdinteractive.com/games/kq3 ... nload.html you posted says that the version for download is 1.0. According to the file name it's the correct (1.1) file, just the page needs to be corrected

*Many* thanks!

There is a bug which is in both versions...

If you are locked in your room by Manny and escape by teleportation or fly spell.
***until you spend out the required time in the room (when the clock will become 'unstuck'), you can enter and leave the 'locked' room (door is closed but not locked)
******Manny will not move on [he will ignore illegal items and behavior (except leaving the mountain by foot and visiting his lab by walking down the stairs) and forget to check on you - seem to be stuck on one task if he is visible or does not appear if invisible]
*********unless he give you a punishment for disturbing him (if he is visible)... then the 'clock becomes unstuck'
******You can teleport to the lab... and then walk up the stairs or teleport out.
******You can use the fly spell to get to Llewedor from the romm by using the shortcut off the mountain
******You can spend as much time as you want in Llewedor and walk back up the mountain to the mansion
******If Manny is asleep (you got the punishment from walking him up) you can disturb him as much as you want
When the cat is kicked here it does not move after it lands but may appear in other rooms...
If Manny moves on he will kill you for abusing the cat...
