I honestly wish you luck, but I think you're about to find out just how challenging this sort of project is.
Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...

Why does the banner on your site have boats with "Chicago Park District" written on the side? What does that have to do with King's Quest? Are you going to change this?

Oh lol I see what you are talking about, that's the best template I have right now until I can design one keep in mind I just created this site a few hours ago. If you guys could help me out with this project it would be appreciated, plus I would make sure you got credit. Its going to have 8 bit 256 color graphics , no speech just text, midi music, and be able to fit on a 1.44MB floppy.. I hope.  :)

Edit: Right now I'm trying to learn how to use the AGS engine as this is gona be my first time making a game. After that I'll make a plot. lol, however for some people will love and hate this but Cedric WILL be in the game!

hmm Ya, my main purpose for making it is to tide people over while there waiting for TSL. ;)

Edit: I'll have plenty of time to make the game because I have summer off thus allowing me to work on it almost 24/7.

Well I might go 8MB. But it'll still have to be short. Cedric will be one of the main characters  XD. Anyways I already have the plot made [In my head] now I need to type it down! But the ending is extremely funny. Most of the scenes will be from from space quest IV and king's quest 6 and king's quest 1 remake from tierra. And the music? well it will be very funny to. ;D

PS: Anyone who will help me with the game gets to know the plot before anyone else does!!!

Will you be asking for permission to use scenes from other games?

Who will I need to ask permission from?  :)

PS: Check out my website again to hear game music.

Edit: It won't let me put music on website. It excedes music file limit. Can't post on forums either.

AGDI and Sierra. If you want to use scenes from their games you'd be best off asking them for permission.

Edit: I e-mailed AGDI already for permission but I can't seem to find Sierra's E-mail, Racx_00 think you could tell me the address? :)

Haha, thats funny man. Good luck. AGS can do some sweet stuff (ie AGD Interactives KQ VGA remakes). Its scripting is fairly straight forward. I messed with it for a while not to long ago.  My advice is use their forums if you have questions on how to do stuff. You'll usually get a response in a few hours.

Check here for some midi from KQVI http://www.queststudios.com/quest/kq6.html.  If you aren't going to ask for permission to use stuff (cuz you won't get it anyway), your best bet is to keep it low key and then just release it when you are done as a simple "for fun" fan project. Otherwise you'll have the same problems this TSL had.

EDIT: You should check out http://www.dot.tk/ to give your sight an easier URL. I like dumb stuff like this, especially on projects just for fun.

Thanks for your advice man, I'm still looking for help on the project but so far no one emailed yet. I might have to cancel the project if im not getting the support and the help I'll need.  :)

Edit: I finally learned how to draw a back ground! I also decided to change the games title to King's Quest X: The Return of the Black Cloak Society, and yes that means I decided that it would take place after TSL, I also decided to use 16 bit 256 Color graphics instead of 8 bit. Although I'm horrible at doing artwork and I'm currently In desprate need of an artist. I'll probably be in charge of the music.

In my opinion it looks better and is easier to work with if you set it up to 32-bit. THen you don't have to mess with color palettes. Resolution of 640x480 also looks a lot nicer than the 320x240 or whatever the default is.  I could help, but I don't know how much help I'd be. I have no artistic abilities as far as computer graphics go.

Well right now the graphics my game will be are set to VGA 16 bit 320x200. If you are willing to help me out please do so. Right now I'm looking for a VGA King Graham sprite set and a Cedric VGA sprite set from KQ5. :)

I have a couple suggestions for you...it's not a great idea to say "I want to have it released by August 10, 2008" when the game is only in the planning stages. Especially when you don't have any team members or anything written down on paper. Also, you'll create people coming by and trolling if you announce the project one day and within a day or two, you mention maybe shutting it down if you don't get any help.

Oh, and you might want to take the KQX out of the title, since TSL got into that stuff with Vivendi because of the KQIX in the title :)

Just a couple suggestions :) I do wish you luck. It's a huge undertaking and I hope you can get it out.

Well the reason I had a release date made early was actually in hopes to stop trolling and encourage people to come and help me with the project. Although right now I'm taking my chances with the title King's Quest X: The Revenge of the Black Cloak Society, however If Sierra ever did request me to quit with the project I'll quit.
The game isn't really that big it's more like a mini game so I don't think they would care to much. I don't even have a group name let alone a company. But if things keep going as they are without anyone volunteering to help out [I currently have 0 people helping and I'm looking for an artist], I could very well cancel the project.

PS: If anyone would like to help in any way contact me by the e-mail link oil4u@verizon.net :)
