ARTIST WANTED FOR KQ3VGA
« on: August 31, 2004, 01:07:56 PM »
Hi folks!

I'm Blackthorne, head of Infamous Adventures - makers of King's Quest III VGA.  If you haven't heard about our project, check out our website at www.infamous-adventures.com .  There's also a thread here in the Adventure Gaming section.

Anyway, I've seen some great art here, so I wanted to put out this proposal here:  we would like to make some close ups and cutscenes for KQ3 VGA, and we'd like some artists to help us create original pieces for these cutscenes.  If you'd be interested in helping out on this project, please let me know!  This project is gaurenteed to finish, and plus you'd get to play the game before anyone else.  As an added bonus, we'll through in a Salad Shooter. Okay.  I'm kidding about the Salad Shooter, but you'd get credit for working on what I promise to be a great remake.  Let me know, either via email, ALEXANSG@YAHOO.COM, or PM me, OR visit our forums, www.infamous-adventures.com/forums .  Thanks!  Have a great day!

Sincerely,

       Bt

Uh, isn't it a little unprofessional to post job ads on someone else's forums?

That's the first thought I had, but if KQ9 has a problem with it, they'll tell him.

I see fangame makers advertising positions on other forums all the time... in fact, IIRC, KQ9 has done it themselves. (shrug)

Well, since we're not doing this for any money, and strictly for the love of the game - I didn't think it would be a problem.

I figured that there would be talented people here who LOVE King's Quest, and would love an oppurtunity to be a part of what we hope will be a fantastic remake.  

I didn't think it was uncouth; if we were competing projects in the REAL world of development, it might be not-so-tactful, but we're all fans here - and I was just extending an invitation and oppurtunity..... some people around her draw fan-art things all the time...... Imagine if you had something you did in a game!  It would be so much fun - and remember that, because that's what this kind of stuff is all about.  It's just for the love; it's a labour of love.  

I was just extending a hand to anyone who would like to help create!

Doing it all the time sounds kind of spamming Neil, whenever I've given then go to post stuff in other forums has been when it's about events and important stuff related, in the right places due the huge research we've done previously with Eric, and even then we always check out policy and email webmasters.

Anyhow, to state clear, I don't believe there's a problem about it since we are a fan-based community which obviously supports the same. Welcome to kq9 forums Blackthorne, feel free to share as much info as you'd like from your project with us, post stuff if you'd like, hang around, be silly, have fun, whatever :)

Done.

If you want to view it later, it should be on their page.

P.S. Since some of your post was connected with this forum, "PM me" , I edited the message slightly. If you wanted me to leave it like it was, I'll resubmit it again, in it's original form.

Hey, Blackthorne!  Have you checked out the KQ3+ thread in the adventure gaming section?  I dunno if you've got it all written and stuff, but it might help you if you're looking for idea! :) I personally can't wait for you to finish!


EDIT (By Yonkey): Added the link. :P

Yes, actually I followed the KQ3+ thread here for a while, and enjoyed some of the ideas very much.

But our game is really more like a 1:1.5 remake.  We haven't changed any of the plot, nor added anything that radiacally changes it.  The only things we are really adding are some Cut-Scenes to give the game a cinematic feel and connect the story to later King's Quest's.  

We may do a "+" version sometime in the future, but I believe, personally, that some things are better left unchanged and unsaid - that's what your imagination is for.  To fill in those gaps and to dream where someone else didn't.

Sounds good to me!  I never played the original before, so when yours is out I'll get a chance to experience it. :)

Same with KQ1 and KQ2.  If it weren't for AGDI, I would never have been able to play them.  8)

Your avatar's Alexander, and you've never played KQ3!?  :o


Oddly, unless you played it when it first came out, you'll be missing some of the fun(The shock of playing as a slave, instead of royalty). XD

My avatar's from KQ6 though, not KQ3. ;P  I did really want to play it after I played KQ6, but that whole timer thing seemed a bit lame, IMO.  :P

Heh. I haven't played the original KQ1-KQ4 for the simple fact that I generally detest text parsers. :P Although I will play them at some point, if only for website purposes.

What timer thing? Are you sure you're not talking about KQIV?
