Activision, you'd best not be toying with us...

http://www.sierra.com/

At least it's getting plenty of attention:

I saw this. It's always been AGDI's goal to reboot the genre. Maybe Sierra is coming back to life...

It's almost too much to hope for though...

There looks like there might be more to it than some have dismissed it. Discussion on the SHP forums http://sierrahelp.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4006 and in some of the Facebook Sierra groups.

"A new King's Quest adventure game is Sierra's other new project. Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, the team responsible for The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom, the new game is a 'fully reimagined' version of King's Quest coming in 2015. 'King Graham--revered as the greatest adventurer to ever live--shares his life's adventures with his curious granddaughter, Gwendolyn,' today's announcement explains. 'It is through these tales that Gwendolyn discovers the true greatness of her grandfather.' "

Gwendolyn...an amusing choice of name.

"We're very proud of what we created all those years ago with Sierra Online, and today’s news about carrying Sierra forward as an indie-specific brand is very encouraging,” said Sierra founder Ken Williams in a press release. “We look forward to seeing Sierra’s independent spirit live on, and are especially excited to see what The Odd Gentlemen will do with King’s Quest.”

I await further details.

In case you guys missed this. Ken Williams shared this photo on Facebook of Roberta checking out some artwork from the new KQ game.

"Here's Roberta looking at some of the art from the game (in this picture Matt, the designer, is showing Roberta how Graham will age as the game progresses.)"

Well, the trailer was revealed, along with honoring the Williamses.

Not quite sure how I feel about this, but the entire honoring of Ken and Roberta Williams at the Game Awards was fairly respectful towards them.
