Title: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on September 28, 2007, 05:05:31 AM
Think about it guys. The team members have been less reluctant to give away semi-spoilers, the biggest of which was Say's post about an announcement about the release date coming soon. Also, it's getting close to October, which is the last time the gave out the release date. I think that, even though they need Vivendi's approval, it is coming soon. What about you guys/gals?

I think one thing:
 :suffer: :suffer: :suffer:

Well I hope It will be soon that the game will be released. In the meantime join the contest and winn great spoilers/trailers/teasers (just like you would like to call them)

*ahem* :pokerface: How many times do I have to repeat it's not a person crazyness that decides whether or not a person belongs in the TSL Asylum but a person's insaneness?! :scholar:
BTW, I still think the Fannatic contest has something to do with the release of TSL: Shadows. :pleased:
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: PirateKingChris on September 30, 2007, 03:47:21 PM
Better lock me up then. *puts out wrists* I'd rather NOT be in Fannatic if it means I end up being a beta tester. I wanna play the game after beta testing is complete. :P
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on September 30, 2007, 05:51:36 PM
I dunno which I'd prefer. I think that I'd prefer to play it after it's been tested, but I'm sure that if I was offered the position of beta-testing, I'd take it in a heartbeat.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Rosella on September 30, 2007, 08:33:42 PM
My desire to correct things really makes me want to beta test it. XD
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on October 01, 2007, 04:52:40 AM
XD

Last night, I had a dream about TSL. :P I dreamt that I got on the site and everything had changed. It was blue and red and there was this pumpkin  :dan: at the top and it said, "Happy Halloween", and then there was a button to press to get TSL. The only problem was that you had to pay $33 for it because Vivendi needed some sort of thing. I was just downloading it when I woke up. :(
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: PirateKingChris on October 01, 2007, 02:29:07 PM
Why do you always wake up when you're having a good dream before it's over? :P

And that would be lame if Vivendi actually pulled that. They didn't even DO anything to make a new game and they demand money? Pfft!
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: tessspoon on October 01, 2007, 02:45:59 PM
I had a dream once about getting TSL... I had it in one of those little boxes they put games in now but I woke up before I got to play it, or the dream changed or something. :P
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: copycat on October 01, 2007, 04:23:34 PM

I'm a very efficient foolproof reader, so beta testing is not far from that. Plus, I've had some experience with the demo too. 8)
Can't say I every woke up during a dream about TSL. I rarely wake up during a dream, which is not difficult since they last mere seconds, or so I'm told.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on October 01, 2007, 04:43:00 PM
I'm seeing signs of TSL EVERYWHERE!

Here's another sign:
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Yonkey on October 01, 2007, 06:19:22 PM
There's a DP version of KQV? :D :P
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on October 02, 2007, 04:52:48 AM
Yeah, I ordered it after Amazon promptly after seeing that, because I suspect that there are more clues to TSL in the DP version.

GAH! It's beginning to be something of a DaVinci Code.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Farquhar on October 02, 2007, 06:00:27 AM
It would indeed be awesome if the game's release was near, but I suppose we'll just have to wait and see... :)

As for beta testing, I'd probably prefer to wait and play the final build of the game, however a chance to play any version would be very difficult to pass up! XD
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 02, 2007, 07:52:37 AM
Only time will tell if the game will truly be coming out soon. As for what Copycat said, I too believe that the fannatic contest relates to the release of shadows in some way, whether it be beta-testing or an announcement of release. I will wait patiently for it, as I have these past years. And unfortunately, I have to go to science class now, so I can't post for long...  :'( But just keep your eyes open, the slightest clue is always a good sign. BTW, what's DP mean?
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Yonkey on October 02, 2007, 11:08:45 AM

lol, I don't know but it was in A3P's picture. XB
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 02, 2007, 11:26:49 AM
Oh, I get it now! XD, Wow, I'm pretty slow! Well, that is rather odd that KQV is in that code verification thing... XD But of course, all we're going to get out of Yonkey is :suffer:, which I do miss very much!
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: copycat on October 02, 2007, 04:23:16 PM
Oh, I get it now! XD, Wow, I'm pretty slow!
Not as slow as me, because I still don't get it.
In Guild Wars TM DP stands for 'Death Penalty' but I guess that's not it. ::)
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 03, 2007, 12:39:10 PM
Look at A3P's picture on the first page, then it should make some more sense. It was just random letters that came with KQV on a code verification thing.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!

That picture is on the 2nd page here, is it on the 1st page where you are? I didn't know you could set how many posts you wanted on one page. ::)
Ah :idea: It just came to me, without fully understanding your last sentence but I do now. :D
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!

Post by: awesomeasapossum on October 04, 2007, 04:07:18 PM
Hey guys, I got the DP version today!!! And guess what?! NO CEDRIC!! I have NO idea what DP stands for, but Cedric is nowhere to be found. He's even gone from the cutscenes in the intro! All the dialogue about him is also gone! It's TOO WEIRD!

Anyway, just thought that I should let you know about it, in case anyone wanted to buy it because of it's non-cedricness.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 07, 2007, 10:36:47 AM
Cool, where do I get it! XD I can't WAIT! No Cedric= Loads of FUN! XB
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on October 07, 2007, 11:19:22 AM
I got it on Amazon but apparently they don't have it anymore. :P However, you can find it on eBay:
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 07, 2007, 11:46:29 AM
Wait, is there seriously a DP version? I'm just so confused right now... XD If this is so, I need to buy it sometime!
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: copycat on October 07, 2007, 03:51:00 PM
Will somebody please explain to me what this DP-thing is?
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Yonkey on October 07, 2007, 04:07:34 PM
It's the non-Cedric version of KQV.  I'm guessing the DP stands for Dead Parrot, but don't quote me on that. :P  It might not stand for anything at all, like Pokemon XD. XD
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on October 07, 2007, 05:01:54 PM
Pokemon actually stands for Pocket Monsters, Unless there's a specific strain of Pokemon in Yonkeytown where it's entitled Pokemon XD. 

Also, there is no DP version of King's Quest V. It was a joke inspired by one of Yonkey's earlier posts. This whole scenario has been a test of my improvisation (and Paint) skills.

So to sum these events up, I was just joking....
....about joking. :suffer:

BTW Neil,
How did you get XD to show up as two letters?

Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 07, 2007, 06:33:04 PM
He put a period after it, so it cancels out. At least, thats what I think he did. Also, you did well with the DP thing. I was wondering wheter it actually existed! That Ebay photo is what really threw me off!
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: tessspoon on October 07, 2007, 06:40:58 PM
Putting a period after doesn't do anything, I've done it lots of times before, like this:  :P. Putting something like a letter or slash (though not a period) before it cancels it, but then you've got the slash showing.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Elessar on October 07, 2007, 09:44:48 PM
Here's how he did it. (I inserted some spaces between the braces.)

It might not stand for anything at all, like Pokemon X[ b ][ /b ]D. XD
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!

Cool. That's clever.

Post by: Yonkey on October 07, 2007, 10:01:02 PM
Heh yeah, you just put any tag in between them with no text.  I saw someone do that on some other forum some time ago. :P

Oh, and A3P, I guess you've never heard of this game: Pokemon XD (http://www.pokemonxd.com/)! XD
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on October 08, 2007, 04:59:23 AM
Ha! I actually have heard of it, but it was a long time ago!
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 08, 2007, 10:31:29 AM
Remind me to try that out sometime! Very clever Neil! So, back on topic... I do hope that something will happen with TSL soon. Does Say's departure affect the release of the game and/or any community updates? I look forward to it's release!
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Yonkey on October 08, 2007, 11:44:20 AM

It doesn't affect production, but it does affect updates.  An official statement on this will be announced soon.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: copycat on October 09, 2007, 03:46:29 PM
An official statement on this will be announced soon.
How? It was actually pure luck I stumbled onto Say's Farewell-thread since I don't frequent the General-section of the forums. I don't even frequent all the thread in this section so if someone hadn't put that link in a thread I was frequenting I probably wouldn't have noticed it. :-\
I'd figured it wouldn't affect production, since she is/was PR.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Yonkey on October 09, 2007, 03:49:37 PM
I'll post a journal entry, but I'm just waiting to hear back from Michael B first.  I guess if I don't hear anything by tomorrow, I'll post it then.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 10, 2007, 06:18:50 AM
Cool, I'm definitely reading that journal entry. I can see how it affects updates, considering how Say was the one who managed them all. Has a successor been chosen, or is that confidential information? In the meantime, I look forward to reading this journal entry for any new information.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: PirateKingChris on October 10, 2007, 01:26:50 PM
I suspect the new entry will mostly pertain to saying goodbye to Say and perhaps naming someone to take her place, and not much new actual game info. :P That's ok with me though, this is an important thing that's happened.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Yonkey on October 10, 2007, 08:50:26 PM
It's now posted.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 11, 2007, 01:37:09 PM
Cool. I'm glad you guys told us that there are going to be minimal site updates, instead of leaving us wondering (not that you guys ever would do that to us!). I do hope that people will not ask you guys about site updates, as that will get to be annoying, I'm sure. Although I think I can safely say that the forum regulars like me will go around and tell the people that ask that an update will be posted when it's posted, and that bothering the team will solve nothing.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: Yonkey on October 11, 2007, 01:48:40 PM
Well, like I said before, we're still going through with the Fannatic thing, so there will be some updates related to that.

And yes, replying to the same questions over and over again is a waste of time and effort for everyone, the constant nagging doesn't make anyone work any faster, and it obviously does not improve team morale whatsoever.  But, there will always be people out there that do not understand this, which is why they are free to speak their mind to feedback@tsl-game.com.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: dark-daventry on October 11, 2007, 02:06:56 PM
Well, I'm happy that there is a recepticle for such comments. Then again, a lot of the time it's new members that ask the questions and don't neccesarily know that asking the team such questions is useless. When I started out on the forum, I don't think I knew that questions like that were annoying. But I mean updates will be scarce now. Of course, with contests there will be updates and such, but besides that, not too much. Speaking of contests, will this update cutdown effect any contests in the future? Will new contests in the planning stages be post-poned/cancelled?
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!
Post by: awesomeasapossum on October 11, 2007, 02:09:47 PM
I think it'd be cool to have the Forumers collaborate and come up with new and interesting content to keep other hungry fans at bay. We could have poems, stories, music, little games, etc. What do ya'll think? If it's fine with the team, I wouldn't mind organizing it.
Title: Re: TSL Coming Soon?!

Monthly contests will be cancelled, but there may still be one  more after the Fannatic one.

We could start a tread where the forumers write a story together. One paragraph a person. In that topic we could write adventures that happen before TSL.

My writing skills don't extend to fantasy, I have about zero inspiration in that area. If you expect me to write paragraphs, that's even worse. Sure, I can get quite lengthy in my blog (which is by invite-only and in Dutch), but all those things have some foothold in real-life.
