Description (by Sierra Entertainment)

Roberta Williams and King Graham of Daventry cordially invite your family to join them in the most incredible adventure game in history!

Take your family on a voyage into fantasy through the magical lands of Daventry and beyond. Journey with King Graham and Cedric the owl on a quest to find the missing castle of Daventry and the Royal Family within.

Beautiful scenery and amazingly lifellike animation create a fantasy world on your computer screen - a no-typing interface and characters that speak to one another using real voices take into that world for an experience so real, it's like being there.

Come to King's Quest V, and discover a world so real, you may forget you're playing a computer game.
