I have found Activisions Phone number! I have not called it yet but as soon as I am out of the office I shall and tell you all if it works and how to get a hold of someone who will listen to us. With one one emailing us or contacting us in general, I think it is time to fill the phone lines and get someone to talk to us.

I have called the PR department at Activision and left a message. It is their lunch hour. If I don't get a response today, I will call them back checking on our package.

Sounds good, waltz!  If they aren't aware of any package or even the situation, let them know they can get in touch with me for further information.

I will do that, Yonkey!

I also found and interesting article dealing with EA and Activision. I play alot of EA games so I read a bit on them however then are fizzling out in my opinion and I think Activision might fall into the trap as well.

http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2010/02/11/will-activision-fall-in-the-ea-trap.aspx

Maybe you can use this in your pitch to Activision about a license.

Communication between me and Activision have started. I have given them Yonkey's email address so they can contact him as well. Someone has the petitions on their desk and they have been opened! Activision knows about us and the word is spreading through the company as the representative I spoke to hear about TSL in passing.

At least they know how disappointed we are. I mailed the other package Monday so I should be getting a report back after Easter. Yonkey has everything I have found from the phone number and the gentleman's email with whom I spoke too.

I believe something to ad in the facbook ad text would be something to the effect of, "Save fan made games!"  That way non King's Quest fans would be inclined to check it out.

Thats a good idea.  I'll look into incorporating that into the ad text.  :)

Why are these status update things in form letter for contacting gaming websites?  shouldn't you have your own thread for those?

I heard about this whole situation while watching a "Let's Play" on youtube.  If you want to spread the word further you might try commenting in the Let's Play King's Quest videos.  At leastv you'd catch the attention of people like me who like let's plays as background noise.

*shrug* I make no claims for the valuableness of this suggestion.
