I'm sorry if this seems off topic, but i don't know where else to get this information.

I'm trying to find the name of an old game i used to play when I was very young. It was on a cousin's computer, and she and I would play it whenever we could (although we never beat it.. we where very young.). Anyway, I've lately had an urge to find that game and finally beat it but I couldn't remember what it was called, and my cousins have since gotten a new computer. None of my relatives remember what it could be and I'm at my wit's end. :(

All I remember about the game was this:

-You played as a girl in a long dress, your mission was to find a magic tree or fruit to help heal this woman who was in a tower you could visit.

-You typed in commands, like "clean" (which you could use in a house that looked like the seven dwarves' house, and theyu'd give you a bag of jewels.)

-One item you could find and pick up was a worm.

-There was a unicorn that would run when it saw you.

-There was a point-like system in the top right corner of the screen.

-There was a jewel mine where the dwarves worked.

-One way to die was to get eaten by a shark.

-There was a prision somewhere in the game, and someone wanted you to capture or kill the unicorn.

I figured that since the game I remember and both of the King's Quest games are SO very much alike, someone might recall the name of the one I'm talking about. I tried searching Sierra's website but I couldn't find anything and I'm not even sure that they made it.

Thank you so much, in advance!

Your talking about "Kings Quest IV"

There is an AGI version and an early SCI version.

Hope you find it and have fun conquering it!

eBay is probably the best chance to get a "real" copy of it.

Oh dear...

I really feel the urge to play KQ4 again... It's been a long long time since I played it. I played it when it was new and haven't actually played it since. I seriously doubt that I can finish it in a flash. Don't remember too much from it.
Damn great game...

Aww thanks, blackthorne!

The project is going pretty well. I wasn't able to do any work on the engine for a month or two cause I was working with a new copy of visual studio .net 2005 which I got from microsoft, and a long story short, I wasn't able to really work on it for a while.

I've done a lot of thinking about the project recently, and I might get someone to do the art, or at least help, if this project is going to be done anytime before 2015. :) . Designing the engine from scratch, creating the game, and doing the artwork is a little bit too much, and it would be nice to just concentrate on programming.
