The companions
« on: July 20, 2010, 10:05:43 AM »
I remember reading in one of the old birthday chats as well as in threads in the older section of the forum that there were to be companion characters--Tigeroat I think was the name of one? Are they still going to be in the game?

Those were in the sections of the game that were cut, unfortunately. Which is a shame--I really liked them!

Tigeroat?

That's not a character in the companiosn that I know of...

Hassan, Hakim, those are all companion names.

Edit: Never mind, LOL. Thought you were talking about the King's Quest Companions...

Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

It Tigroat, also.

DMD's not talking about people in the King's Quest Companions, these were original characters that we would've had but they were cut along with the sections they appeared in.

It's pretty much my favorite animal.  It's a lion and tiger mixed---oh, wait.  We were doing Tigroats, not Ligers. ;P

The other one was Unique, a unicorn, right? :P

And Cesar, weren't you supposed to voice Tigroat? XD

I would love to hear that. I feel like Alexander would've done well with a companion (other than Rotten Tomato :P).

I wish the rotten tomato would've had more lines - that little fella was hilarious.

It's still bred for its skills in magic, though. ;)
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

You should post some clips!  I'd love to hear it!  I remember the Tigroat and admit I'm a bit sad it's no longer in the game.  I agree with Rosella about Alexander having a companion.

I did love Rotten Tomato, though - I'm still hoping for at least an easter egg involving him. ^_^;;  He was one of my favorite parts of the game.
Finally a place where no one will ask me what my screenname means or how to pronounce it!
