I would say that 2010 is definitely the year that King's Quest returns.
Ooooooh, it sounds so dramatic when put that way.  ;D

Love ya, dark-daventry!

I know, doesn't it? I truly believe that there will be a new found popularity for King's Quest, and adventure games in general, once TSL is released. And I have a strong feeling that 2010 will be the year that it all returns.

ummm wishful thinking.....ya right

Hey, a fanboy can dream, can't he? Sadly, I wasn't really old enough to enjoy the popularity of adventure games the first time, seeing as when they were at their prime I was only in elementary school, if even. I'm only 18, but I grew up on King's Quest and other adventure games. The only way to be introduced to the adventure genre these days is to have been raised playing them. As much as I want them to be mainstream again, I suppose they never shall be. But, as I said, a fanboy can dream, and dream I shall.

You're probably right. They'll probably do like a special  25th anniversary edition compilation or something.  :)  Imagine how these boards are going to explode once the game is released!  It won't be the same 20 people posting every day anymore.

I remember way back in the day when these forums were crowded with people. That's when a lot of people got their post count up. The forums were bustling with activity, sometimes with a couple of hundred posters on at once. It was really cool. Sadly, that all declined to a few people. I'm truly hoping that the forums will explode with activity again, but only time will tell.

As for a 25th anniversary collection, I have a feeling that won't be happening. What usually ends up happening with adventure game licenses is that they sit on a shelf never to be used again. I doubt Activision-Blizzard will put the licenses to good use, but only time will tell. If they do release a new collection, I am totally up for it, and I'm hoping that they make them compatible for windows 7 and fix a lot of the bugs and compatibility issues. And maybe some extras, like making of videos from back in the day, interviews with the designers, things like that.

But I definitely think that KQ will come back in a big way in 2010, in part due to TSL. But, Sarien.net will probably play a part too. It continues to advance, and it's really pretty cool. I would suggest checking it out.

Anyway, I do believe that the forums will have a resurgence once the game is released, and I predict that 2010 will be a big year for King's Quest, and adventure games in general. Let's hope I'm right!

XD ROFLOL.

Seriously, just wait patiently. The team has been very busy lately and is working dilligently on completing this game. Sure. the website may not have been updated in a while, but at least the team is working on the game. Whenever there are any updates to the release, those will be posted in the appropriate areas. The team is also hard at work on a brand new website design, and that may be one reason for holding off on updating the site. And who knows; perhaps a new theme is right around the corner...

It takes time to update the website.  Time that could be used working on the game.

Would you rather have TSL or the TSL website updated?

haha.  jk.  but yeah,  just wait.  I'm sure when the game comes out or some time around then the site will be updated.

I think the site will likely be updated with a new design before or on the announcement of the release, and once the game is released, then the forums will see a massive influx of posters... Personally, I'm looking forward to a new design. I actually miss the old blue one... I loved that forum... But yeah, just wait patiently and you'll be rewarded. Patience is a virtue... And I'll admit that I even have trouble waiting for this game. I've been waiting for it since almost 2002 (I didn't join the forums until 2005, but I've known of the project since way before then) yet somehow I've managed to do it for all these years.
