Oh,  I know what the joke is. And as I recall, the whole problem with that situation was that Mr. Kast (it was Jodo Kast, right?) didn't actually make the game. He just claimed he was going to. Over and over and over again.

I'd still like to play a VGA version, though.


Amen to that.  If I had my 'druthers, I'd like to see "The Colonel's Bequest" redone in VGA - with hand-painted backgrounds, scanned in and resized.    

Ah.... dreams, dreams....

I think CoC is most worthy of a remake, one of Sierra under-rated games.  8o

Conquests of Camelot is by far the one game most deserving of a remake. It was just an awesome game, through and through. There's stuff about it that I STILL don't even know about it, and I've played and beaten it, like, a billion times. It's just awesome and it needs a remake.

One thing I don't like about CoC is how many of the puzzles are just copy protection.  It's really excessive.  Having more actual puzzles in a remake would be good.

Yes CoC is worthy of remake. It was a great game.

I wish more games were like it. (I never played Conquests of Longbow)

But Colonels Bequest should be done too by someone too( NOT JODO KAST! Will we ever forget him?).

I doubt it. Jodo's pretty much made his memory immortal with his project. (on which he hasn't given up yet, btw)

I think we all believe that Jodo will continue making progress at his current pace.

Reptile, it's a long story. It wasn't the graphic quality that upset people. It was the way he communicated with others.

He said it was going to be finished later this year. Then again, he said that last year also. Still, you can't help but admire his guts. I don't think I would announce a fan project at the place where he did it. :p

Hi!

As for my opinion, It's time to remake SQ2 = the Best EGA-Graphic Sierra Game = this is my voice in this unofficial voting.
