Conquests of Camelot is the precursor to one of my favorite games of all time, Robin Hood : Conquests of the Longbow. Camelot is an early SCI game that employs keyboard commands with simple mouse, much like early LSL and Codename ICEMAN. I never made it very far in this game. The keyboard input turned me off after being spoiled by VGA remakes and early full mouse adventure games. Maybe I should give it a whirl?
Conquests of Camelot: The Search for the Grail is a graphic adventure game released in 1989 by Sierra. It was the first game in the Conquests series designed by Christy Marx and her husband Peter Ledger.
The game begins at the decline of Camelot because of the love triangle between King Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot. This ‘curse’ brought famine and drought in the kingdom. After having a vision of the Holy Grail covered by a silver cloth, Gawain, Lancelot and Galahad departed on a quest for the Holy Grail. However, they did not return. The player controls Arthur in his search for the missing knights and the Grail.
