  1. Not sure what this thread is about, but you keep rockin it. :o
  2. Interesting. I love Quest for Glory, but Corey obviously isn't the best spokesman. I can't believe he just throws the Space Quest guys under the bus like that to cover his own problems. He's also attacked me personally (a $100+ backer on both his first Kickstarter and his back-for-more Kickstarter) for relatively minor/normal criticisms, although I guess I come off like a dick sometimes. Still, not the best guy to have out there interacting with the community. Oh well, if there's one thing the Kickstarter era has taught me, it's that the people who made the games we grew up with are ve
  3. My goodness, this looks so good. I wish I could make a game like this.
  4. I think the baritone narrator on the Pete Toleman bits of the new SQH stuff has an amazing voice and great timing.
  5. Yeah, he should Kickstart that! I would pledge at least $100, if not more...
  6. SQ5 had a ton of characters too, all new except Bea. Some of those relationships (Quirk) were implied to have started sometime between SQ4 and 5...
  7. I would like either someone who's imitating Gary or someone very similar in style. I can very easily imagine people being annoyed by an imitator, but I personally would be fine with it.
  8. *begins writing moody black-and-white Space Quest fangame about depression*
  9. Wow, this video is stellar!! I hope it's getting proper airtime in the scene. Very smart and thorough. My only complaint concerns the persistent (and incorrect) claims that adventure games are gone, and that King's Quest 2015 was an attempt to "bring them back". Even if you're of the mind that only heavily-funded corporate products are legitimate games, Tell Tale has been cranking out smash hit titles for years. More importantly, there is a nonstop stream of relatively lower budget adventure games coming out all the time that are probably better than the Tell Tale games. Consideri
  10. Hmm, yeah, 96-97 was definitely not my favourite adventure game era, but it did see a sort of counterrevolution against all the CD-driven FMV and first-person prerendered slideshow experiments of the mid-90s. In reaction, they offered really polished, high-quality hand-animated stuff in classic style like CMI, Broken Sword, LSL7, and one of my personal favourite underrated titles, Fable (...not the Molyneux game). (Fable's plot was basically "Let's get naked in the most campy way possible": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAJiCERMxfI) After 98, with the exception of Grim Fandango, I de
  11. 1996-1997 really was a great time for adventure games... Just after the FMV debacle and just before the mandatory 3D apocalypse...
  12. It's funny - I played SQ5 on the GOG version and it worked fine. I might have used SCUMMVM...? Anyway, I didn't do anything special and it worked fine, so I recommend trying these two things ;)
  13. Let me know if you make any new shirts! I've gotten the Sierra and Genetix ones - very satisfied :)
  14. I love how he focuses on little things that date the game just right. Neon signs and radio stations.
  15. Hmm... I don't fully disagree with either of the two excellent posts above, but I do have a very different perspective. All I'll say for now is that I wish they hadn't made Graham such an anti-hero. I felt this was completely unnecessary and a repulsive "Guybrushing" of a solid license. Does every adventure game hero really need to be a funny-looking bumbler with a heart of gold?
  16. My reaction to this gave me a hernia. Holy Christ, I would be intolerable if Old Gentlemen ever got the Space Quest IP.
  17. Funny. I didn't realize there was so much drama, even among Sierra fans! I normally get blocked/flamed by LucasArts fans... Anyway, I joined just for the sake of bumping up the number of members. I probably won't participate much outside of that :blink:
  18. These guys are True American Heroes.
  19. Link? I feel like this is the wrong one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXTE8_H8bIQ
  20. God, the graphics for this game hit me so hard. I wish I could just dump more money on it to make it grow faster.
  21. I'm not sure why, but I don't care. Maybe Paul Trowles could get a stake in this somehow.
  22. Looks like the home of the infamous "gypsy"...
  23. WOWWWWW This is easily my most-anticipated title in the works. I kinda want to replay all the good SCUMM games in anticipation :wub:
