I didn't think that KQ1 was that different (though I can't really recall the original)
KQ1 was a complete copy of KQ1, storywise. I think that was a test-case to see how good they could duplicate KQ.

Okay, so I see no point in downloading KQ1 then. :p  I do hope though that they remake KQ3. I'm curious to see how they could do it. :)

I really enjoyed KQII+ but I thought some of the art in the cut scenes was a little odd. Don’t get me wrong but it seemed to be stuff from KQ V and VI retooled sometimes with odd results. All told an awesome accomplishment and that’s my only gripe…  8)

Ok, I hate to double post but I thought I should chime in on the dial-up/dsl/cable discussion. At least where I am Cable (via Comcast) is horrible for a hundred thousand reasons! Speakeasy does the best DSL… www.speakeasy.net… go there get happy…

Donno, everything I see Graham I get an odd feeling I’ve seen it before… I may be mistaken… whenever I see him with the crown on the perspective doesn’t seem right.

Hmmm.

I noticed a lot of things were stolen from KQV.  The wolves, the librarian, the cloak, and still a few other things.

I think she meant the actual sprites were taken from KQ5... and I must agree. Why bother draw your own when you can make a few alterations to the existing art?  ::)

I had to go back and reread my questions. My questions were things specific to things that Tierra added to the game, and unrelated to the rest of the series (which yes, I have played all of ;)).

It was good, but this is just me; I found the entire "The Father" thing to be out there, even from KQ.

Why can't you have a baddie in KQ?

I meant the concept behind The Father was out there. A supreme being that is behind everything that has happened, and wants the crown seems strange to be. Alhazred, Mannanan, and the other original KQ baddies were good. Just not Tierra's The Father. :P

Well, Alhazred and Mannanen are part of the BCS, and The Father is the head of the BCS, so I don't see any problems there. What's up with that crown, I don't know either, but apparently it's important to the BCS.

I think what Celli meant was, that none of the other KQs had the baddies all tied up together like that. Sure, there were some relations out there but nothing as pronounced... the BCS exists far more in the imagination of the fans than in the actual games, and KQ2+ is the perfect example for it  ;)

   When do you think the new QFG will come out?  I am really looking forward to playing it.  There is such a lack of good games out in the computer stores these days.  I appreciate Tierra and the makers of KQIX for keeping the adventure games alive.  Thank you very much and keep up the great work  !!!

You don't like Syberia2 and Broken Sword 3 (and Runwaway, and Black Mirror) ???

I think AGDI will release the QFG2 remake sometime this year or the next... probably before KQ9 sees the light of day ;)

Yeah, several graphical elements originally came from games like KQ5. (which is probably the reason for your deja vu feeling) It's mostly the result of one person doing both the biggest part of the animations, lots of backgrounds and the entire job of scripting. There's people who are very vocal in their criticism on this issue, but I personally decided to just cut AGD2 some slack until I'm in a suitable position to criticise him. (i.e: as soon as I can manage to work 9+ hours a day on a game for about a year or so) After all, you can't really call someone lazy who works that hard without a little voice in your head calling you a hypocrite.
