I'm just wondering... because I would contact them if I knew how... but I don't know how to... and I'm assuming they know about it.... but if they don't... they do know about it - don't they?

Excuse the fact that I posted a message in this same vein before - I've repeated myself because no one replied and I considered this an important query.... thanks for your time...
sorry to bother....

No, guys, please don't contact the Coles about the remake. I'm sure they'll find their own time to check it out, play it, and comment on if they want to. No need to put them on the spot.

They know about the existence of the game, but I'm not sure if they've been following its progress actively.

I was just wondering... I didn't really want to step on anyone's toes... just purely curious.

Sorry if I offended... :\

From what I know of Erp and Ag, Ikkyu, I doubt you offended.

Apparently the Coles have found the remake... they mention it on the homepage of their site.

(As already listed above, http://www.transolar.com)

Have the AGDs heard anything from the Coles specifically? I kinda am wondering what they thought of it, though that's very awesome that they posted about it on their site! And says a lot about the AGDs and just how impressive what they've done is...

The 'School for Heroes' will probably become very popular. :)

It might not, considering it's being made by Malinche, the very same fellow who made a mess of the AdventureCon.

Don't presume the Con madness carries over to the company's general work in the IF field, Alliance.

I think it's a logical assumption to make Brainiac.

If you have no experience with what the company made its bones in, just the AdventureCon stuff, sure. But considering both the fact that it's survived for a fair while in a very niche field AND the Coles themselves are involved, I'm inclined to say don't assume the worst just because of the Con madness.

It wasn't just a mess, adventurecon, it was a total joke. The whole thing showed a complete lack of organisational ability which quite honestly makes me think twice about anything they do. To the point where I would seriously think twice about even purchasing their products. I have full trust and respect for the Cole's though, so we can but wait and see.

WOW did you guys see the blog they made about QFG2VGA? it's really cool... Lori talks about how Cori even played it for a while and couldn't defeat a brigand... I died myself the first time, but then I got it down the second fight, I really liked it, I think you should only be able to take one down the first day anyway, before I could plow down 10 brigands in a row on my first day with an imported character... click the link below...

The Magic User should (almost) never have to fight, thanks to the Calm spell...

Maybe the good press'll finally get sierra to rerelease the original series, like they did with King's, Space, and Police Quest. Not that I'm OPPOSED to buying them all on eBay. It's just that I don't really have the 200 some dollars it would take to do that right now.

I just bought Police Quest (1-4) for $8, and Space Quest (1-6) for $10. Both from Half Price Books

I bought Qfg1 off ebay, in excellent condition... then I was robbed and they took Qfg1 but left Half-Life 2 collectors edition, and all my other games :cry

(I also bought Qfg2, in fairly good condition, which they were kind enough to leave)
