^And it has indeed caused our progress to slow to a crawl, but work is still being done on the project.  And as such, I remain confident that the good people at POStudios are doing everything they can to finish theirs as well, despite the hard times that the whole world is going through.

So I take it it's in the behind the scenes
 It's still coming out. What hard times is phoenix online going through? What about when karen died of heart failure of the King's Quest IV project? That was a poor tragedy.

There are many problems with POStudios and TSL, but they're understandable problems. No budget? To be expected from any newbie company. Experimental? Sure, some of the puzzles are a bit odd and aren't very intuitive. Amateurish storytelling? Yeah, it's got that problem too. POStudios may be many things. But one thing they're not is malicious. Nor are they greedy*.

This is a passion project through and through, and they haven't demanded a penny for it. And they've never been anything but respectful towards their fans--or at least towards the ones who deserve respect. I distinctly remember seeing an outright hostile reviewer giving TSL Episode 2 a score of 15/100, only to be humbled by Cesar in the comments, defending his game with the utmost tact.

So before you decide to badger them yet again, just know that you have no authority over them. They do not need to bow down to your every whim. This goes for Shalkar, who has done nothing but act like an immature manchild during his entire tenure on this forum, and also to ThunderChild, who had the audacity to unfavorably compare POStudios to Valve, when the only similarity between TSL Episode 5 and Half-Life 3 is how long they've been in development, and whose company policies couldn't be more night and day.

*except maybe refusing to release the soundtracks to TSL Episodes 3 and 4 even though it would be a good PR move at this point

Grayson and Peter have escaped the Crimson Draco Prison thanks to Amiee the Armorer's help - and she lays down some heavy information about Destiny and Dragons (D&D?)... but is Peter right about what he said in this episode? What did he say? Guess you will have to watch it!

Hi Everyone,

I believe that chapter 5 is still coming out Phoenix is an amazing game company and this was an amazing game series I don't believe they would just leave us hanging I believe that there is a reason to their silence and not posting even if it's for the fact that maybe they don't have anything new to post at the time or they could be going through some hard times.  and not to mention we have no right to hold them to any standards being that this is 100% voluntary project they are not getting paid for this project I don't know about you guys but I am definitely not going to fault them nor am I going to give up hope.  :)

Alyx is now released, and according to Wikipedia, "The game received critical acclaim and has been described as VR's first killer app. Critics praised its graphics, voice acting, writing, sense of nostalgia, and atmosphere."

It goes on to say, "The Valve Index headset, controllers, and base stations all sold out in the United States, Canada, and Europe within a week of the game's announcement, and by mid-January 2020, were sold out in all 31 regions the units were offered. According to Superdata, Valve sold 103,000 Index units in the fourth quarter of 2019 as a result of the Alyx announcements compared to the total 149,000 sold throughout 2019, and was the highest selling VR headset for personal computers during that quarter."

Finally, "Half-Life: Alyx was met with universal acclaim, according to review aggregator Metacritic. Reviewers at publications such as VG247, Tom's Hardware, and Video Games Chronicle have said that the game is VR's 'killer app.'"

It currently has a 92/100 on Metacritic from critics and an 8.9/10 from users.

All in all, despite what ThunderChild might think, Alyx has accomplished exactly what it set out to do--revive interest in a long-dormant IP in a way that was carefully calculated to win over fans and naysayers alike, and make as much money as possible.

Finally, according to one of the designers, "We absolutely see Half-Life: Alyx as our return to this world, not the end of it."

I, for one, am looking forward to the inevitable VR spinoff wherein we play as Dog.

Its already finished - the final episode (Episode 4) was released several years back. Across the span of all 4 episodes, its a great game. Closure to the Kings Quest legacy was given in 2016 with the Odd Gentleman game. Id say we fans made out much better than we did in 98 when we thought that Mask of Eternity was the last wed ever see of the series.
