Title: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: koko_99_2001 on September 12, 2007, 03:33:45 PM
Wouldn't you know that someone has bought out Vivendi and are  re-releasing the King's Quest games. However, due to some made-up copyright laws, they are having to rename each of the games.

They are asking for the dedicated King's Quest fans to help come up with the perfect name!  So, your job is to come up with a new name for one or two (or all) of the previous games.

You have three weeks to come up with some great ideas and then one week to vote!

(DISCLAIMER: No, Vivendi has not been bought out and the games are not being renamed. This contest is for the sole purpose of having fun.)

Post by: PirateKingChris on September 16, 2007, 02:30:12 PM

Did anyone catch the pun? (It's a pun, so it is pretty horrible. But, no, it isn't the MoE riff at the end...)

Wow, time to vote! You know the rules...one week to vote! And one vote per person, unless Neil decides to change it :P

Nah one vote per person sounds good. :)

And what the... "KQIX: Every Cesar Has a Silver Neil"?? Hahahha! XD

Post by: dark-daventry on October 07, 2007, 11:13:27 AM
I was torn between a lot of these! I liked all of them, but I had to go with Say's, because it mentions Cesar! But they are ALL good entries! Keep the creative juices flowing with all of these contests! And make a contest I have a chance at! XD
Title: Re: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: PirateKingChris on October 10, 2007, 10:22:48 PM
No offense, but the goofy title that isn't actually based on renaming the games winning seems rather silly to me.

And I'm not being a poor sport cause I'm losing, so don't say I am :P
Title: Re: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: koko_99_2001 on October 11, 2007, 05:12:47 AM
Well, Say won so congrats to her :)
Title: Re: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: Yonkey on October 11, 2007, 06:34:48 AM
Hmm... Well, there isn't really any TSL prize we can give to Say that she hasn't already seen. :P So, instead, let's open it up to the community and anyone that would like to give her their own personal prize is free to post it in this thread as an attachment. :)
Title: Re: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: Petra Rocks on October 11, 2007, 07:14:45 AM
Without wanting to sound in poor taste either, if Say never comes back to the forum, as I understand her intention to be, posting things for her here will have little purpose......
Title: Re: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: Yonkey on October 11, 2007, 08:23:59 AM
Well, if she never wants to come back, that's her choice.  However, there are people in this community that still care about her, and this is their opportunity to show their appreciation, should they choose to do so. :)
Title: Re: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: Delling on October 11, 2007, 10:14:59 AM
As a further suggestion, the content of the present posts could be forwarded to Say via email by a moderator or someone as a sort of going away gift package/prize for winning this competition.
Title: Re: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: Yonkey on October 14, 2007, 07:23:50 AM
Sounds good, Delling. :)

I'll start by showing the prize from the previous contest.  It's concept artwork of Edgar.  Many of these were created by Say while she was in the Art Department. XD
Title: Re: Re-releasing of KQ Contest
Post by: Gilgamesh on October 14, 2007, 07:36:46 AM
I should never enter any contest again.
I won't get any votes anyway, so I better stay out of it.

If my wisdom has been removed I'll still know it. :P
