At the Game Awards Show 2014 in Las Vegas, Ken and Roberta Williams were honored with the Industry Icon Award! Introduced by Neil Druckmann from Naughty Dog Studios and following a beautiful tribute to Sierra as a pioneer in the gaming industry, Ken and Roberta came on stage to accept the award in person, gave a speech and thanked the fans. Both appeared very touched by how their legacy still lives so strongly after all these years. It was also a very special and emotional moment for us, Sierra fans, many who followed the event live and commented on the Facebook page of Sierra Chest and Sierra Gamers.

Roberta apologized for not having a new game under development (it's been over 15 years since Mask of Eternity), but then introduced Matt Korba and Lindsey Rostal from The Odd Gentlemen, designers of the new King's Quest. Matt Korba, the lead designer, also gave a speech, stressing how important it is to the development team to have Ken and Roberta's blessing, and gave gamers worldwide a first look at the new King's Quest.
