Cez teases us with suffers and a countdown. There are obviously only a few possibilities:

1. The countdown is to Neil's return. The suffers have missed him.
2. Through some weird time travel paradox (signified by the counter), Cez and Neil (signified by the suffers) are actually the same person. Time travel has even allowed them to be photographed together. Sneaky, guys, but did you really think you could fool me?
3. Neil is currently dancing while listening to "The Final Countdown", and will have the song stuck in his head for the rest of the day
4. The countdown is just counting down to the start of another countdown, hence the suffers.

These are obviously the only possibilities.  :P

I like to imagine whatever the (hopefully) good news the timer is counting down to is the direct result of Ken and Roberta Williams storming the Activision compound like a 1980's action movie.

Lol, what is so funny about this is that after all this team has been through, and everything that has stood in this game's path, often I've dreamed that Roberta and Ken Williams would put their spin on it and help out with it as well, but i know that would never happen.

But according to rumors, the countdown is to an announcement that Activision is putting Treyarch on the 3rd installment, (Treyarch being the game designers for Call of Duty and other big game titles) which should be done and ready for the holiday 2011 season. And that they are going to be releasing it in 3 installments charging 59.99 for each.

I think that article guessed right--the German article--which stated that the game has been changed enough to fit Activision's liking, as in names changed, etc. Just my personal prediction.

Well, someone was trying to sell their baby for $25.00 at Walmart.  I am not joking about this either.

Maybe the count down is the amount of time before the special introductory offer is over and they raise the price to $50.00.  THAT was a joke.   ;D

Seriously though, being that the website is operational again we already have an idea of how the negotiations went.  So maybe the countdown is either the release of the game or a major update regarding the game.  I like to think its the former though.   :)

The quote points to the game being changed. Also, notice--The cap is not King Graham's adventurer's cap. That's a hint about the change.

Its shorter, with a rounder top. Graham's cap has a much longer brim, is skinner all around and the top isn't as sharply curved. It's more akin to a Robin Hood hat.

Accounting for slight artistic variation, which happens all the time when recreating things, the only major difference I see between this highly-detailed version and the one shown here (http://static.gamesradar.com/images/mb/GamesRadar/us/Features/2010/02/10%20fan%20games/valsecrets--article_image.jpg) is the feather placement.
I'm not saying that you're wrong, but the details seem too minor to make a judgment on. :)

Well... if we're speculating wildly... here's how it went down:

POS: We'd like to buy the IP/a fan license.
Activision: That's nice but we're not looking to sell... now let us take a look at this game.

POS: here's everything we've done *hands over awesomeness*
Activition: *receives awesomeness* *hands it off to people to play through and analize*
POS: *taps foot*
Activision: *twiddles thumbs*
POS: *checks watch*
Activision: ok, cool, here's the deal...
POS: *read* ok *signs* *hands over all the signatures they'd previously collected as well*
Activision: here's your ethereal legal notion of a right to do what you've already done
POS: here's your likewise ethereal concepts of good publicity and community good will *sets up counter*


...not that I think that's what actually happened... I'm just speculating wildly...

Possibly. Perhaps Activision has been the unmovable stone and POS is forced to close TSL and move on to other things.

But I doubt it. ;)

I'm so enjoying this  :suffer:

As am I.   ;D

Alright, fine, if everyone wants the truth, I'll give em the truth. In all actuality, tsl is being re-made into kings quest: Lego edition. Now you can play as Lego Graham and Lego Alexander. And of course, travelers tales is behind it all... The adventurers cap on the countdown? That's there to throw you WAY off course...

I've spilled the beans... Or have I? Muhahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!  :suffer:

We've also inked a deal with lego to sell actual kings quest branded legos in addition to the game. We're very excited. We've also got a very special Roberta and Ken Lego figure in select packages of kings quest Lego.

I would kill for that Lego set.

As far as I can tell, the timer is definitely going to be done in a little over 15 and a half hours, meaning 4PM EST, July 27, and I have a feeling like this has to be something good. I really doubt the team (and Kimmie, apparently :P) would have so much fun teasing us if it were horrible news. :P

Actually the timer ending is about 6 days from now...530,000 seconds or so is equivalent to around 150 hours, which is equivalent to 6.25 days.

The rate of change of the numbers on the timer is faster than a second.  That is why I was wrong although I thought I initially miscalculated.
Title: Re: The countdown is to....

I think it is a milla-second. The second number is the actual second hand.

It should be good news.  That would be really mean if they were counting down just to tell us bad news and that the negotiations failed.  That sounds like something I would do- they are not that mean  :suffer: :suffer: :suffer:

Yes, that makes sense, thanks Waltz.  I believe it's about 14.5 hours from now.

I take this as proof that two of my predictions were correct!

2. Through some weird time travel paradox (signified by the counter), Cez and Neil (signified by the suffers) are actually the same person. Time travel has even allowed them to be photographed together. Sneaky, guys, but did you really think you could fool me?
3. Neil is currently dancing while listening to "The Final Countdown", and will have the song stuck in his head for the rest of the day

Title: Re: The countdown is to....
Post by: TheReturnofDMD on June 26, 2010, 10:15:17 AM
I'm excited... and want a Graham doll.

What my dad did was got an Aladdin doll, very similar to this one, (http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41Q6J4AJQAL._SL500_AA300_.jpg)--He bought it from some kid as we were exiting a Park one day in 1996. He then ''shaved'' off a bit of Aladdin's head (for example, he got rid of Aladdin's cap and made his head a bit more round to accodomate an Adventurer's Cap.

He then got paint, or dye, not sure which, and dyed Aladdin's hair grey (to create the King Graham of KQV). He got fabric of some sort from a store which supplied doll stuff to make the shirt, and cut it of course to approximate the appearence of Graham's tunic. And for the belt, he got a thicker form of the wire that usually wraps around other wires (For example, that little cord that comes with a new set of headphones which is wrapped around the headphone wire to keep it from dangling loose) and dyed it dark black and I believe got the head of a thumb tac and painted it yellow/gold for the belt.

He got more fabric from the supply store and shaped it into pants, dyed it (but it came out Blueish Purple instead of purely blue), and for the boots we took the boots off another doll, I forget which.

We also later got an "Amulet" for him--My dad bought a crystal, brought a tiny chip off of it and tied the chip to a small piece of not leather but something like it, and tied it and put it over Graham's neck. However his amulet has since been lost.

Graham also had an Adventurer's Cap, but it kept falling off his head and it  got lost. My dad made two, and both were lost.

Also--If you look close in that picture of me, in my other hand there's Cedric. My dad took a stuffed animal of a bird (not an Owl though), gave him a Vest and monocle and that was Cedric to accompany Graham.

I even named my third Cockatiel, whom I got in the Summer of 1997, Cedric after KQ5. From '95 to '97 I was HUGE into KQ. Still am  :o

I'm in the same boat, although it was at TTLG (iirc) that I discovered that there were other adventure game fans. Even then, though, I didn't realize just how highly King's Quest and other Sierra adventure games were thought of among gamers.
