- Ooga Booga (where Ooga Boogites live, and the Swamp of Eldritch. Ooga Booga Land (aka Ooga Booga. and Land of the Dead) is the greater kingdom that includes the town (or township) of
Death fascinates men the world round, and there are as many philosophies about what comes after this life as there are, it seems, lives which end. For land of Eldritch, Ooga Booga is the Land of the Dead.
Ooga Booga Land is made up of a cemetery and the Swamp connected to it. It is part of the land of Eldritch and as such is ruled by King Oberon and Queen Titania, but Count and Countess Tsepish govern the land. The darker regions of Ooga Booga Land (minus the Swamp) is the Land of the Dead in the Realm of Eldritch.
Many years in the past, a great war was fought all over Eldritch and Etheria lead by rebels forces under the command of the traitorous Malicia.. Not even Ooga Booga was spared. Count Vladimir Tsepish fought valiantly, defeating many of the rebels. But by treachery he was beheaded by Malicia's gargoyle. His head was hidden away. Countess Elspeth soon died of heartbreak, and the mansion of the Count and Countess was attacked and set ablaze the the Boogeyman, a vicious undead creature, and their dog Black Valiant perished. After her death, Elspeth became a melancholy wraith, when once she was the most beautiful woman in Eldritch. After the Count and Countess' deaths Ooga Booga fell into chaos, and the Boogeyman took over.
Many years later things were set right when Rosella was able to defeat Malicia and restore the Count's head and he was able to rule again.
Ooga Booga is a far away land, and is one of the most remote regions of the land of Elritch in the Realm of Eldritch (the world itself). Still the much larger Vulcanix Underground lies beneath it and all the rest of the lands and kingdoms of Eldritch.
Those who die in the Realm of Eldritch are moved onto Ooga Booga, where they are buried there (or continue on in undeath). Everyone 'living' in the realm are dead as a doornail, for the most part. As such it acts as a kind of afterlife for those of Eldritch, the Land of the Dead.
Behind the scenesEdit
Generally known as Ooga Booga (or rather described most of the time as 'dark land of Ooga Booga', or 'land of Ooga Booga', or 'Ooga Booga land'. Occasionally it is simply referred to as 'Ooga Booga' (although there is some confusion and overlap in terminology between use of 'town' and 'land' in this case (as both the 'snake branch riddle' and the doctor refer to the 'town', he calls himself 'town doctor'). It is also known as Ooga Booga Land (with a capital 'L' in 'Land') in game maps in King's Quest Companion and KQ7 Hintbook.
The swamp where Malicia lived is also considered part of Ooga Booga Land in game maps in the King's Quest Companion and KQ7 Hintbook.
Ooga Booga is described as being a kingdom by Mathilde in the game and in KQC. Though there is no evidence of any known kings.
According to the Gravedigger, those who die in the Realm of Eldritch are moved onto Ooga Booga, and its a kind of afterlife (for those who die). Ooga Booga is apparently known as the Land of the Dead in Eldritch. Either that, or she knows of the Realm of the Dead in the Land of the Green Isles. But under the context of rotting together in the coffin, for eternity, and based on what she says in KQ7, it appears she intended to leave them locked away in Ooga Booga for a thousand years. As Eldritch's Land of the Dead, that would mean that Vlad Tsepish is the Lord of the Dead for the land. He may be the equivalent of the Lord of the Dead or personification of Death for Ooga Booga.
Several characters in the game also note had the Volcano erupted and destroyed the world that Ooga Booga would see a huge surge in population (also suggesting that those die in Eldritch go on to exist in Ooga Booga).
Ooga Booga Land (Oooga Booga) is apparently considered a kingdom although it is ruled by a count. Perhaps he also holds the title of king, but this is never specifically mentioned.
