Adventure Game Scene of the Day — Sunday 25 May 2014
Here’s another shot from an old text adventure called Dungeon Quest (1989) featuring what is probably the most popular recurring character in adventure game history. I wonder how many games we could think of with him in it?
Discworld, Discworld 2, Discworld Noir…
EDIT: Oh wait… are Death and Charon two different beings? Or is it a bit fluid?

A funny Charon appears in Zork GI and a historical one in Wrath of the Gods. I’m sure there are more.
There’s a lovely Charon in Basic Instinct.
Oh, wait, that was Sharon…

King’s Quest VI
Let’s not forget King’s Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow.

Charon was a recurring character even inside King’s Quest series. He was featured in King’s Quest II, VI and Mask of Eternity.
