Very nice! If I may ask...How long did it take the team to revamp the old Sierra games?
King's Quest 1 took about 9 months.
King's Quest 2 took about 1 year
King's Quest 3 and Quest for Glory 2 took about 8 years, but mostly because we were spread out across multiple projects during that time, in addition to our first commercial game.
I still have my original copies of the Quest for Glory games and the King's Quest games...guess I just never wanted to give them up...lol. I've had some ideas for remakes of some of these games, but I find that actually remaking the games and then actually playing them are two different things. I leave such things up to your team because it's always more enjoyable to play someone else's remake then to do it yourself.
One of the criteria for creating free remakes of existing games that span multiple years of development is probably that you need to be a little crazy in the head. Blackthorne probably knows what I'm talking about. Either way, I assure you that you've kept the bulk of your sanity intact by sticking to merely playing the Sierra games.
The graphics and new character animations that you guys created were so much clearer than the originals...I can imagine that it took quite awhile to update those. I look forward to playing your original games....it's nice to see a group of talented individuals keeping this genre alive. I know that I spent many hours absorbed into those worlds and they were some of the greatest moments alive...again, I thank you for a job well done.
Thanks again! 2013 looks to be a pretty good year for adventure fans as a whole, with many of the Kickstarted adventure game projects likely coming to fruition this year. Here's hoping we can make our dent in that collection with Mage's Initiation!
