:eek

Will there be a flash website announcing the QFG2 remake similar to what you did for Al Emmo? The Al Emmo site was AWESOME. Also loved the poster and cover art.

LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!

Erpy did say someone is working on the website in the other thread, and since Eriq posted these teasers, I'd say it is probably so!

I agree! Can't wait to see the final product!
(Speaking of... will the poster art and stuff be for sale? :) The original sketches that is. :) ... and other art from the game??)

Gronagor, I hope so too! I think it's so great to see people with this kind of passion for classic gaming... whether the people are AGD designers or amazing artists like Eriq Chang.

Quest for Glory II has always held a very special place in my heart. I feel extremely blessed to have been asked to contribute. When Chris (AGD2) asked me to create the website, I think I about choked on my veggie burger... especially since, unlike Al Emmo, I played no role in the development of the actual game. It's been very exciting putting my own twist on the promotional artworks for this classic title, along with a few other surprises.

Like all of you, I have been anxiously awaiting the final release. I have had exactly two encounters with this new release - once at Planet Hollywood where I met the entire development team and watched as AGD2 tinkered around with the character selection screen and earlier this year when the fabled Britney Brimhall and Stijn (Erpy) stayed at my studio and helped me draw cartoon fish (more on that later. :lol ). It was a test in patience shielding my eyes from Erpy's laptop which, at every opportunity, he enthusiastically powered up to demo the slick new battle system with. It's true. I want to savour every minute - shiny and new. To say that I am excited is an understatement.

Stick around. There's more coming from the peanut gallery. And thank you for the feedback! :)

Shat I would give my left googad for a poster like that on my wall! You guys should seriously consider selling prints! Well if you can legally do so.

But he did say that it there will be a chance to win the poster :)

I guess we could take it for granted that the art should be QfG2 related. :)
Hmmm... which characters and monsters appeared in the game?

Shameen, Shema and the other Katta obviously.
Ali Fakir, Uhura, Rakeesh, Julanar the tree, saurus...

I can see you have put a lot of effort into that and I cannot wait for the final product. After seeing your work on Al Emmo, it's no doubt this will look awesome!

Cute cat btw. And Mac's rule.

I know! I wish I had that kind of equipment too. It's like I make these games using a rock and a cave wall compared to Eriq's stuff!!
