Re-releasing of KQ Contest
« on: September 12, 2007, 03:33:45 PM »
Wouldn't you know that someone has bought out Vivendi and are  re-releasing the King's Quest games. However, due to some made-up copyright laws, they are having to rename each of the games.

They are asking for the dedicated King's Quest fans to help come up with the perfect name!  So, your job is to come up with a new name for one or two (or all) of the previous games.

You have three weeks to come up with some great ideas and then one week to vote!

(DISCLAIMER: No, Vivendi has not been bought out and the games are not being renamed. This contest is for the sole purpose of having fun.)

KQ1: King Me!
All that is gold does not glitter
Not all who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep roots are not touched by the frost

From the ashes a fire shall be woken
A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king

Monarch's Voyage I: Raiser of a Lost Crown

Aaaaaa! Idea stealer!! I've been trying to think of all the names for the games in the series, but I already had an idea for the series as a whole, and it was going to be something like "Monarch Missions" I-VIii. XD
