The eighth game in the King's Quest series, King's Quest: Mask of Eternity introduces players to a new character, Connor, in the land of Daventry.
To summarize the plot, Connor's entire village, along with the prosperous Castle Daventry, are turned to stone. Just before the stoning occurs, a golden shard of the Mask of Eternity lands at Connor's feet, sparing him the fate of all around him. He must search the land through seven tough worlds to find the four missing pieces of the Mask of Eternity and put them back together.
King's Quest: Mask of Eternity boasts a number of features including a revolutionary 3D action engine, real-time combat, first- or third-person points of view through seven different worlds and puzzles inherent to the King's Quest series. The game puts emphasis on the mental aspect rather than physical with solution of puzzles playing a crucial role in the game.
This does not, however, mean the game is without physical aspects. A feature not found in other King's Quest games, real-time combat, has been added to King's Quest: Mask of Eternity almost giving it a Quest For Glory feel. So, don your armor, heft your broadsword and fletch your bow! Only you, Connor, can save your friends, family and all of Daventry by fixing the Mask of Eternity! ~ Chris Couper, All Game Guide
