The alternate Kings Quest 5 box is hideous -



Now compare it to the other Kings Quest 5 box art -

this i did not know! i remember the Planet of Death cover so well.... for some reason that stuck in the mind of an impressionable child! (the game itself was considered a bit of joke in my family however)

Agony i have never owned, and having just looked at the box on HOL, has sent a shiver down my spine!

That was actually taken out from the final game, probably lack of space or something. However, the box had already been designed (and perhaps printed), so changing it wasn't an option.

So they should write it on the box!!! I'm dissapointed and angry!!! I never bought the original but that does not matter, that's a question of principles. Give the dog THE CHAIR!
Kings Quest V box sucks, I dont like it.

I've just read through this whole thread again (it was started in January - can't believe it was that long ago) and some of this "artwork" is so awesomely bad it's really made my day. Superb!
