  1. Hello! I just want to say that your way of doing guides is awesome especially for the King’s Quest games. It is probably too late to ask but will you still make a guide for the game “King’s Quest II – Romancing the Stones” on the AGD Interactive Version? There are walkthroughs for the AGD versions of both KQ1 and KQ3 I tried searching for one on this website and only found the Sierra version of the walkthrough for KQ2. Thanks in advance and sorry to bother you this late in time.
