Heh. While I'd love to see a KQ movie, I think it would run into the same issue as making a SQ game, or whatever... namely that you'd pretty much end up re-writing the series from scratch from Day One. The first couple of games in each series would be kind of boring just to watch instead of playing, without quite a bit of re-write. The later games in the series you could stick more to, but they either wouldn't make much sense without first knowing the events of the first couple, or they could make sense, but you'd have to take out a lot of the stuff that's uniquely King's Quest-y.

Not that re-writing the series for movie-dom would be a problem, per se... the base concepts of the games are good, and some of the specific events, and I wouldn't mind being able to take advantage of the, well, advantages of film to make them a little "meatier". I guess I'm just saying that you couldn't really jump straight to KQ9 to make a KQ movie. ;)

Peace & Luv, Liz

Hello! ;D

I don't know about a movie either, the books were good though. ;D I liked the one about a fairy that needs to be freed or something.

KQ8 worked fine on my comp, it worked great, but say a game like Neverwinter Nights, it was VERY slow

Now Mango, don't mess with the newbie's head!  :P

She's not really Roberta Williams, she'd just like to be. :)

I agree that a KQ movie would be difficult - too much to tell at this point. As a game, it works very well. And our director, Cesar, is very into giving the game a cinematic feel, so that's pretty close! (and no, it's not one of those click-here-when-told-and-watch kind of movie games...ugh).

I, btw, am Katie, the co-writer. Welcome to the forums!

thats one of the things I like the most about this kq perspective, its like all fresh and new, and not the fact of a 9th sequel but also the 3d concept, the movie feel, the indepth plot, its a lot to look foward too about this :)

And before anyone asks, I DID notice DMD used that word. I just decided to give him the benefit of the doubt this one time, him being new to the forums and all - Let no-one say I'm not tolerent  :P

That filter is a great idea! does it work retroactively as well? ???

Looks like it does!  I've actually been wanting to add that in there for a while now, but I kept forgetting.   ::)

It seems to, since even the original post by DMD was altered by the filter.
Filters rule! (especially this one) ;D

I rented the Last Unicorn from Blockbuster, and it's an awesome movie! The plot was great, it's  a great movie for both children and adults, if adults happen to like unicorns. I never did see it when I was a child, if I did see it I forgot about it.  I had the video for 5 days, in that time I watched the movie 3 times, I loved it so much. i drew a picture of the unicorn. I was going to draw her in human form and the wizard, prince, and outlaw woman Molly too, but I didn't have room on the paper and I had to return the movie.  I like to believe unicorns dragons and fairies exist in some magical otherworld out there. As long as they're in the human heart they are real.
