Hopefully we'll be able to make true on our aim somewhere this month.

It'll be out this month, if you double-took the entire website. ;)

So...about the 30th of February then? :)

Or just say it will be out in "February", just don't specify which year.

I gotta say, I'm getting real excited for KQ3. I can't believe I hadn't heard about you guys remakes until recently, cause I'm such a huge fan of old school adventure games, and King's Quest in particular. I never was able to really get into the older games though. I think I got like a third of the way through KQ1 before I stopped playing it. I understand how limiting it is working on these games, and I love you guys for it, but it still breaks my heart that you guys can't do KQ4. Magic Mirror games is apparently working on one, and right now they're working on a demo.

There's a wonderful artist at the AGS forums that shows from time to time scenes from King's Quest 4. Maybe one of these years these screens might become a full game.

I'm so glad you guys are remaking this game. The KQ line will always have a special place in my heart as KQ1, 2, and 3 were the 1st sierra games I played, and made me fall in love with them.

While QFG was a good line, it won't touch what KQ generates for me. I'll be downloading it ASAP.

Later,
Beernutts

So... you're saying you suspect it will never be released?

I'll take a guess maybe it will be out on February 14th.

You realize that Cupid was in King's Quest IV and not King's Quest III, right? ;)

It will be out when it is out. We should be happy that February is a shorter month, and that we have to pay $0.00 for it.

Very much so. In preparation, I've played through AGD's versions of KQ1 and KQ2. Considering the great quality of all of the other AGD works so far, I imagine this will be equally spendid.

In the meantime, IA still has its own version. If you haven't played it, you probably should. It is quite well-made. Also $0.00.

I'm definitely going to wait for the AGDI version, don't want to spoil anything. I may just have to play through the King's Quest games I do have in the mean time. Or work my way through some QfG. It's not the same as King's Quest, but it's still fun.

Just played through IA's KQ3 last night. Spell casting is certainly tons, tons easier. Pretty much a faithful remake without too many (unexpected) surprises.

It will be interesting to see AGD's spin on this game.

Oh boy...this bodes well for the imminent release of the game. The inner fanboy in me just felt his pants tighten.

I made it. It was a good shout out. Chris seemed very excited to have his hands on the game!

Actually, not really, since the rights holder for the art is [more than likely] the same as the game's.

Anyway, I didn't re-register after such a long time only to disagree with you, I really wanted to cheer on the release. :rollin

It pretty much amounted to several guys rambling on for an hour and then gushing very enthusiastically about KQ3: Redux for a couple of minutes. Very positive response, but no real tidbits for the fans waiting for the game.

I guess there are still a few bugs to squish? It seems like the game is in a mostly playable state...

... although I totally missed the review, somehow.

There wasn't really a review. Just a couple of general comments. We're trying to keep a bit of a lid on the info about the project until we get it released.

No, he is right. The license holder will look less favorable (and you really have NOTHING to stand on when it does go to court) on your project if you use everything AS IS. In fact, you'll most probably be sued rather than just receiving a C&D letter.

For example, if someone used Mickey Mouse from Disney in their own cartoons, but with a different look, they have a 50/50 chance of actually getting away with it. But directly copying the look, name and manner the character is used, you're screwed.
