Affa nata! Just in time for the long weekend, the first episode of The Odd Gentlemen’s King’s Quest reboot is totally 100% free on Xbox One. We don’t know how, we don’t know why, but we don’t ask questions about free stuff. It’s freeeee! It’s also rather grand, and you get to ride a guinea pig in a race to rule the Kingdom of Daventry.

King’s Quest Chapter I: A Knight to Remember is the first of a planned five-episode extravanganza, and the third one dropped this week. The game is a “reimagining” of the original Sierra series, which debuted over 30 years ago and taught me how to think backwards.
