From Monochrome to Monarchy: King's Quest History - pt.2
In the first part of the "From Monochrome to Monarchy: King's Quest History" series of articles by David Craddock, we've presented the beginnings of On-Line Systems. With a slight delay, it's time for the second part - "Quest for a Crown".After the enthusiastic reception of both Mystery House and Wizard and the Princess, On-Line Systems continued to grow. Ken and Roberta Williams' family blossomed almost in parallel. In 1979, shortly before On-Line's Hi-Res Adventure series made its debut, Ken and Roberta welcomed another son, Chris, into their lives. Sales of Mystery House and Wizard and the Princess were great enough to allow the family to move out of Los Angeles and into their dream home: a rustic log cabin outside the gold-mining town of Coarsegold, California.
