eposadic (sp)
« on: June 26, 2010, 03:10:11 PM »
Hey guys, it's the hero. I haven't been active here in years although I was aware of the situation and sent emails to Activison daily. Anyway, I was wondering 2 things:

1. Are there any strings attached to this new agreement or did the company agree to the previous agreement?
2. It won't take 10 years per chapter, will it?

To my knowledge, there are no strings attached, but I am not the one with all of the information. And no, it won't take ten years for each chapter. That I can assure you of.

That is awesome to hear. I was a little worried that Activision would have tried to sell it as their own product but it's fantastic that they are allowing it to be released for free to anyone who wants it.

Does this mean we will see chapters 4 through 9 also or just chapters 1,2,3?

Could that change in the future?

Didn't we already play most of Chapter 1 in the Demo?

No, I think it was said somewhere that the demo was approximately 5% of chapter 1.

I read a thread, I'll quote it, a Q&A for the Demo wherein it's stated that the Demo is roughly half of Part 1, but only like 9% of Shadows overall:

http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=4737.msg182222#msg182222

''1. What is the "TSL Public Demo RC1"?

The Silver Lining Public Demo is publicly available section of The Silver Lining - Part One: Shadows.  Shadows represents the first three chapters of The Silver Lining, and Public Demo RC1 is roughly half the size of Chapter 1.  This demo is also the same one sent to Vivendi Games back in November 2005, which played a major role in VG granting us legal permission to continue development after our shutdown.


2. How much of Shadows does the TSL Public Demo represent?

Chapter one is 34 pages
Chapter two is 175 pages
Chapter three is 170 pages

Total: 379

So plot-wise, Chapter 1 makes up about 9% of Shadows, and since the demo is about half the size of Chapter 1, it represents 4.5%.''

Chapter 1 and 2 of the script split into 5 playable chapters overall, I believe.

You'll read more of this in upcoming interviews, but we have set the stage so that we may tell a full story. It won't be what we originally promised, but then again, that was too ambitious. But it will allow us to tell the full condensed story and it's all feeling a lot tighter and better.

Don't worry, you'll be enjoying the upcoming episodes a lot. I promise you that.

And regarding the time per episode, we don't know exactly what will that be, but we are shooting at 1-3 months between episodes. They are all about 90% complete, and we'll release them when we feel they are good enough for you to fully enjoy them.

This time, however, we'll keep you fully informed of what's going on. There won't be long hiatus without any news anymore, and we'll give you enough information between episodes. So, it'll be a fun ride.

We are ready.

Please dont do what TellTale Games did with their 6 Chapters (i think) of Monkey Island, they made all the Chapters Awsome Games, but they finished the Last Episode Extremly Rushed as if the Creators got Bored and just wanted to get it Over with.  ???

Do TSL and finish the Last Chapter that will satisfy our Questions throughout the Series and make us Love KQ All Over Again, i still dont get Monkey Island from TellTale  ::)

I very much doubt that with all the hard work the team have put in that they would rush anything Daventry! They love the games as much as us fans!  :)

Awesome! Personally I don't really care if it's 2 chapters or 9 or 100+ chapters, as long as the story is self-contained with a clear ending in the last episode I'm sure it will be fantastic! :)

Ah, so am I right in thinking that although the five episodes do not include all of what was originally planned for TSL, they do tell the complete story of the game, and episode five will actually be the end of the KQ story as you envisage it?

EDIT: Just read this on another thread:

http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?topic=8543.0
(quoted from Cesar's post)

Quote
As I said in a different thread, the story has been condensed and the most important points of the story have been brought over to episodes 1-5. You will get a full story by the time we are done with what we have in plan. We are now able to tell a full story as opposed to before, where it wasn't feasible to create the rest of the episodes within the same structure.
