The Wizard and the Princess (On-Line Systems, 1982 or 1983)

One of Sierra's earliest graphics games, The Wizard and the Princess was a ridiculous little game with a threadbare plot that suggested what their games would eventually become (the game even took place in the land of Serenia, which was the name of the major country in King's Quest V). It had some cute graphics for the time, but mainly relied on very simple situations and cliches for their puzzles. If you can find it, play it for the novelty value, but it should not be considered playable for any other reason in this day and age.
