Title: KQ9.org's 3rd Anniversary
Post by: Yonkey on May 01, 2005, 10:23:58 AM
On Sunday, May 15th, 2005 the King's Quest IX team will celebrate KQ9.org's 3rd Anniversary by hosting a chat in the KQIX Chamber (http://www.tsl-game.com/chat/).  From 4PM – 6PM EST (GMT -05:00) fans will get a chance to talk in realtime with members of the KQIX Development Team, including the directors, artists, musicians, and programmers!

The first hour of the chat will be reserved for questions from invited members of the press including: Just Adventure, The Inventory, Game Informer, PC Gamer, and more. Also during this chat, we will finally be announcing the game's release date and other exciting surprises! XD

I hope to see you all there! 8)

Neil, of COURSE you had to go and post the announcement an hour after I left today...and six hours before I got back home! I told you that I shouldn't be the last to know ;)

 XD WOW! You KQIX people rock! I don't know any of you personally, yet I feel really proud of you all. Just hearing about the release date gets me uber excited. In only three years you have made something lots of people just can't wait to get their grubby little hands on. Keep up your awesome efforts and give yourself a pat on the back (and a hug)!  :D

The release date!?   :o Consider me there!! I'm probably going to be ranting about this so much that I won't get any sleep at all! I'll try and be there, although I have never been in an online chat room, so I won't know what I'm doing. :P But I will still be there if I don't have anything to do. I'll even go and cancel all events I might have that day just to be there! I can't wait though!! If the release date is in a long time, I can wait as you guys have done an astounding job so far from the looks of the screens the Inventory released.

oh! its sunday! yeah well then monday yeah, I got confused, I thought it was close of business Friday. I guestimated the 6am part, I will probably be awake then, but getting ready for work. You should only be awake  6am on Saturday morning if you are STILL up! :)

Post by: koko_99_2001 on May 08, 2005, 07:10:20 PM
Well, I just realized that I won't be around for the 3rd Anniversary. :( I actually made plans today with some friends for next Sunday. One of my bestest friends is leaving in about two weeks for pharmacy school and will be about eight hours away (well, after I move, we'll be about 8 hours apart). So, because she's going straight into pharm. school and not "graduating" exactly, she, the Blur, and I are headed to the Renaissance Festival next Sunday to celebrate and say goodbye. So, I'll be missing it, but I'll definitely be there in spirit and WILL be reading the log.

Umm...any chance the fannatics might be told the date ahead of time (like, Sunday morning per email) as long as we're sworn to secrecy not to post it anywhere until Chamber? I really would hate to be one of the last to know *puppy dog face*

And the game's definitely Faboo! ;D

Well, and by the not having to read the log, well, that's so I don't have to read through the whole thing, taking who knows how long, in order to find out all the cool stuff. I'll read through it eventually, though, when I have time :P

Post by: dark-daventry on May 09, 2005, 01:12:52 PM
I will try my absolute hardest to be there since there will be five different things being announced or given out. That is unless my sister forces me off the computer in the middle of the chat. :P

But, anyways, whenever the game's release date is, it bis worth the wait, as you guys have done an astounding job on it just by looking at the pictures that the Inventory showed off. I am getting this game no matter what. I loved the KQ series, and this fan sequel looks to be VERY good.  :) I hope this project gets to be a very popular game. I will even post a link to this site on my website for all to enjoy! Only like six or five days left...!

From what I understand each part will be a separate game, but will all come under the banner "KQIX." Part 1 will be released this Winter, Part 2 I think next Winter, and I'm not sure about Part 3.

I'm 28, so the first game will come out in December when its winter. ???

Title: Re:KQ9.org's 3rd Anniversary
Post by: sivvrianBARRY on May 15, 2005, 07:27:52 PM
Each game according to Cesar is around average adventure game length, with the 1st and 3rd games being around KQ5 length and the 2nd being around KQ6 length.

Not sure what you mean by original game. Originally KQ9 was supposed to be one game but it became too big, so now KQ9 is actually made up of 3 different games. Think like the Lord of the Rings movies.

1st game: You control Graham
2nd game: You control Rosella and Alexander
3rd game: You control all three

There was a lot more revealed in the chat, but I can't remember it all, so make sure you read it when it's posted.

:) I read at this website http://www.fanventures.com/ about what they said of an original game after the three part games. (we've found out that there will be an original game made after KQ9) :P Please correct me, i'm confused. ???
Title: Re:KQ9.org's 3rd Anniversary
Post by: sivvrianBARRY on May 15, 2005, 07:48:40 PM
Oh, I see what you mean now.

Yeah they said that they'd work on an original game after KQ9 but that was all they were willing to say.

Post by: Cez on May 15, 2005, 08:12:29 PM
Original Games means original as in a new concept (unlike King's Quest which was a pre-established concept, one we did not create).

KQIX is made of original material based on the existing King's Quest Series.

King's Quest IX became so large, that we split it up in 3 parts. It's still the same game, only split in 3 parts.

Wow, I've been following this site for at least a year now, maybe longer, and I decided to finally register on the forums so I could give MAJOR props to the team creating KQ9.  I've followed some other homebrew game projects, and compared to most of them you guys really have it together!  Thank you for loving Kings Quest so much and continuing the legacy!!  I can't wait for the game!

So, a couple little questions which will probably be answered in the chat log...but was an official release date given?  And I assume this will only be Part 1 that comes out in the Fall/Winter??  If only one part at a time, any predictions on the time spacing between release of the other 2 parts?  

Anyhow, thanks again...you guys rock!!

**Sorry Cesar, i must have been typing my message when you posted your info about release date...**
