Ugarte created this little poem about the Alexander’s shipwreck at the beginning of King’s Quest 6.


Alexander stood before his ship
With his men preparing things.
He smiled at the beautiful day
And the thought of seeing Cassima.

On and on the ship went
With Alexander looking for land
But a terrible storm struck
With thunderous force.

The men tried to stay up
But many fell into sea
And Alexander hanged on
Hoping to survive the threat.

He opened his eyes again
To see another beautiful day
But he was soaked all over
And feeling a little hurt.

He felt the sand beneath him
And the wooden planks nearby
“Oh no” he suddenly thought
“I have been shipwrecked.”

“Where am I?” asked Alexander
Looking at the endless sea ahead
And the mysterious land behind him
But without Cassima in sight.
