Question About KQ Fan Games
« on: July 13, 2006, 10:49:33 AM »
So, I noticed on the KQ Omnipedia that someone is remakeing KQ IV:

KQIV

That made me wonder, since I-III have been remade and the remake of IV is in the works (and looking promising.), is anyone working on a remake of KQ V, VI or VII?  I know that the first four were remade to update the graphics and everything but what about extended versions of V and VI?

I don't believe anyone is planning to, since the main motivation in remaking the older games was to bring them to VGA quality.  Of course, there's also this:

I believe AGDI said they would not be remaking anything already VGA quality, because there is no point.  I can't really see other fangroups willing to take the legal risk after what happened with our project, but who knows.

What about someone remaking MoE to enhance the storyline and give it better graphics? :-\

They are remaking KQ4 -- why --- the sound in that game is great and the graphics are okay.

Because people want to take the graphics from 16 color to 256 color.
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg
