Would be so cool to start Chapter 2 where we find the Magic Mirror and then in Chapter 3 the Magic Chest and then in Chapter 4 the Magic Shield, witch would leave Chapter 5 open with the Epilogue.

I dont want to find All the Treasures at once in Chapter 2 or if its to be in Chapter 3

This game is supposed to take place in between the others, so I don't think we'll be finding them in any other chapters...

The prologue is for show. I dont know if you ever played a Tomb Raider Game, but theres a Game called Tomb Raider Underworld where we started the prologue first and then the Game until we entered the same place as the prologue witch we had to repeat and conclude.

Birdy, are you saying we are not gonna find all the Treasures then.

Or at least, that's the most logical next step to me.

Yeah, I've played Tomb Raider: Underworld.  Other games have done prologues like that too.

Maybe the next episode will start with a story about his journey to Kolyma.  Or one that begins with Graham saving Valanice from the tower and then maybe talks about some kind of quest he did, and ends with Alex and Rosella being born.

And then the third one would be during/after the 4th game?

How can one of the chapters be during 4? Graham's dying in 4! That's hardly the best time to go on an adventure!

I strongly hope we don't end up replaying select rebooted moments from the original series.  I honestly think that's a lame way to go--too much of a pointless retread.

Can't wait for someone to start the TV Tropes article on this game...

Agreed... Surprised one hasn't popped up yet. It feels like people make those things so quickly after something is released.

Yeah!

And good point, Lamb. I guess if it logically fits into the story Graham is about to tell, then it makes sense. Like, we went into the KQ1 well in the intro, and got a chance to compare how things were different then and in chapter 1. Something like going to the Rnchanted Island in Kolyma wouldn't make sense in that regard, because I doubt that Graham would need or want to go back there anyway. *shrugs*

Yeah. But it really makes me wonder how much they can do in between games, since according to what I've read that's what they're doing. Each chapter has Graham at a different age, so it doesn't all take place at the same time.

Haven't played it yet but I checked out a bit of an LP and was actually into the style, it is a very pretty game. Though I agree I really hope this isn't just a series of of KQ 0.5, 1.5, 2.5 etc

But I don't think that is necessarily what TOG is aiming for.  It is perfectly viable for pre KQ 1 which is what I think episode one is doing, and there is plenty of old Doc Brown Graham to do after the events of V.

The grampa Graham approach was pretty clever, lets the game reimagine scenes like the dragon under the guise of gramps embellishing his own story for his granddaughter (would be nice to give her her own game after this). From what little I've seen the game seems to be striking a good balance of doing something new without ditching the source material altogether MOE style.

Also I want Triumph retroactively added to all the old games.
