New King's Quest



What to think? Personally, I'm feeling conflicted. I'm not as excited as I should be, given how long we've had to wait. Maybe it's because the trailer makes it seem like it's going to be a platformer, something which I'm less enthusiastic about in general. I do love the art style though.

I was far more excited seeing Ken and Roberta Williams accepting their award, which can be seen in the link below.

Re: New King's Quest

I can take it being a platformer - if it is - as long as the interface provides a wide-enough variety of things your character can do. Including, of course, things that yield no productive result but do yield some funny, just like in the old Sierra and Infocom games.

If you're like me at all, perhaps your lack of enthusiasm is stemming from memories of how technically abysmal the last couple of games in the series were. 7 was practically unplayable. And that was back BEFORE "go ahead and release it broken, we can patch it over the 'net" became the standard it seems to be now.

Re: New King's Quest

Heh, well maybe. Though come to think of it, I don't think I've ever played 7. Wasn't that the one that mostly used disney-style animation? I think I had skipped on it as I didn't like the look, and it seemed to take more of a step sideways than a step forward, if you know what I mean.

And yeah, I think i'd be far less disappointed if maybe it had puzzles to solve among other things, but it seemed like a lot of running and jumping. And of course, I'd love to see him make a fool out of himself during idle animations. I also wish it were closer in genre to the adventure games.

I thought Telltale was doing the revival.. Oh well, I'd much rather they get back to licensing LA franchises anyway.

Re: New King's Quest

They had the license at one point, but from what we know, there wasn't much progress and eventually it reverted back to Actvision. Then Activision, earlier this year, announced they were reviving Sierra as a label. There was a lot of speculation about what that meant exactly, but now we see it was to release a new King's Quest game, among other things likely as well.

It'll never be a true King's Quest without the voice talent of Josh Mandel.

That is true. Josh Mandel WAS King Graham. Consequently, he's also done a good job in some of the unofficial remakes.
