SB1988 reminds us King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella used to be one of the first games to feature a female protagonist. Well, not counting text adventures, I guess. Though if you go graphical, isn't it a bit of a pity that this first female protagonist has to be… Barbie? Not exactly empowering towards female audiences, is it? Though for sure, it is interesting that the game applies the same strategy of today's Barbie animated movies: simply featuring the same base character in all roles, with just the hair exchanged.

All kidding aside, this is a beloved installment of probably the most iconic graphic adventure series ever. Sorely missing in our collection this far. Thank you, SB1988!
