Wishful thinking, if that grumpy old lady still lives there.

it is not used in the TSL storyline. the house is still there as you can see at the screen with the shops, but you will just walk past it on the way to the ferry (just like in other KQ's you are not always be able to go to buildings you see in the distance)

Technically the building you see through the arch isn't the same one as the Stepmother's House. It's just "another section of the village" according the KQ6 narration. Beauty's house was on the outer edge of that section of town. KQ6 truncated things and doesn't show every part of the village. On beauty's house screen its described that the house and the nearby path lies between between the village and sea, IIRC.

Also the building seen beyond the arch, doesn't have the exact same architecture as beauty's house, no fence and private yard in front of it. It goes directly alongside the street.
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

I'm playing through with no voice narration (?). Visited sacred isle, couldn't land on beasts isle, ended on mists isle with face in sky. Did I miss an isle?
Like a silent movie with no voice cards.

Oh wow I just saw this thread and went back and played it to see if it was really there. I cant believe I missed it! I would have never thought to go there because there was nothing there in KQ6 :P

But I was also upset that I couldnt see beautys house or go to the other side of the castle where you painted a door in KQ6 :(

Yes I was very pleased to see the new part of town. I just loved looking around at everything even though  nobody was around. I look forward to returning to this area in later episodes when every one is open for business.

If it were there people would be complaining that we couldn't take the roses (if they even still grow now that Beauty's gone).

old topic i know...

butttttttttt...
it would of been able to walk by the house and see that the roses are all dead and maybe the house is ran down, broken, ect ect, since Beauty left... but wasent there someone else in that house too? Her dad perhaps?

::)  Silly Ultima, do you not know the story of Cinderella but at all? ;) Her dad died, that's why her evil stepmother makes her do all the chores.  She "has no obligation to Beauty," so Beauty actually considers it generous that the old hag at least gives her a place to live.

 ;)  She's a mixture of the two princesses.  They included the whole "beauty and the beast" thing because Robby Benson had just done the voice of Beast in the Disney movie.

Really? I mean, it would figure that the game had been written and planned long before they had the voice actors hired...is this a guess, or did you read this somewhere?

I thought that I read it here! :shock:

It must have been elsewhere then.  I definitely didn't come up with that one on my own!  Hmmm.  Let me do a quick Google search and we'll see what happens.

Maybe I read it on imdb...?  In any case, here's a quote from imdb regarding this idea:

Quote
One of the puzzles is based on the story of "Beauty and the Beast", the Disney version of which (Beauty and the Beast (1991)) starred the game's star Robby Benson

And a fun fact about Shamir:
Quote
The genie's name, Shamir Shamazel is a parody on the Yiddish words Schlemiel Schlimazel, which in English roughly means "clumsy idiot".

EDIT: 'Kay, Google yielded nothing else for me. :(  I'll PM Baggins and see if he knows if its true or a rumor.

Well the disk version of KQ6 came out in 1992. The Cd-rom version came out in 1993.

I think Katie is right.  They were desiging the game at least a year or two before that, late 1990/early 1991ish.

So I think its a coicidence, that Beauty and the Beast, and Robby Benson ended up being the the same game.
