We are SO awesome.
LOL What a statement. ;P  But yes, it's very rare for even commercial games to get TV coverage, let alone non-commercial indie ones like ours.  This is definitely a great opportunity for our project, and G4 is probably the best (and only, I believe?) station dedicated purely for video games. :)

Probably because we're not big enough to be mentioned among the top headlines yet. :P

That was weird.

They called TSL "An official new chapter, King's Quest 9: The Silver Lining." Doesn't that make it seem like Vivendi is doing it? :S And are they allowed to call you "King's Quest 9" anymore?

I don’t see the link for the new show yet at G4. How much time was dedicated to TSL? (Doubt I’ll be able to watch it at work anyway.)

From what I heard about it... no, it's not worth it.

Well, 1-2 minutes is better than no minutes.

Except they apparently didn't know the title of the game.

It seems they didn't use anything I gave them, nor did they even do enough research about our game to even know its title.

Very disappointing.

Like I always say, TechTV was kind of 'meh' but OK.  G4 was 'teh suck' and not good at all.  G4-Tech (or whatever they call it) is 'teh ultimate suck' and could never possibly be good.  :P

PS: X-Play is overrated.

Yeah, I know.  But still, after the merger, G4 basically took any good TechTV stuff off the air, replaced it with stuff like 'The Man Show' and car shows, and re-casted shows like 'Attack Of The Show'.

Wow. I didn't see it but it sounds like it was a HUGE let down.

Let down doesn't even begin to describe it.  But I will see if I can find out what happened first.

On the bright side, this whole thing has led me to re-listen to/stare at/watch every bit of TSL media I have. Fangirl moments rule. XD

Ok.  I sort of found out what happened.  They filmed that stuff prior to contacting us for permission to use it, and then didn't have enough time to add any of the stuff I sent them.  The host assumed we were the official ninth in the series, because we have official permission from VU.  It's an honest mistake, but one that wouldn't have happened, had they went through the stuff I sent them. :P

Anyway, Trevor has offered to do a full segment on TSL, and even have the host come up to interview me personally once he's in the area. XD  But, we'll see.  In any case, I won't promote that in advance, unless I get to see the final footage before it airs.  8)

Well good job getting on the air at least.  Hope to hear more about it.

I wouldn't have known about this unless I didn't read the GameInformer mag when it was featured with the KQ's AGDInteractive made.

  Yes, I think at this point getting your name in front of the public is the important thing.  Even if that name happened to be wrong, interested people will still Google Kings Quest IX and that will still take them to this site.  Of course, I'm not a advertising person, but from this non-professionals standpoint it seems that disappointing as it doubtless is, it makes little difference to the purpose if they called it TSL or KQIX.  :)
