TSL in the Old Days, wait what old days
« on: July 17, 2010, 04:59:16 PM »
I remember back when we played those Mini Games (Genie Snake - Ping Pong Alexander - Rosella something) and we saw Artwork of TSL, so what has Changed and is Some still the same.

01. The Trailer that Started the C&D Mess, is All that we saw Only from Episode 2 or the Whole Game.

02. I remember seeing a Screen of Graham standing at a Bridge with Fire or Lava below, is that gonna be In the Game and could we see the Old Screens again Please.

03. Will these be In the Game.

Keep in mind that some of those pictures are pre-Vivendi C&D. While most of the "KQIX" shots in there seem like they could easily still be in the game, I will note that the fourth picture for your third question appears to have older graphics. That's not to say that it isn't in the game anymore--they could easily have changed the graphics--but I feel that it is worth noting.

The picture for #7 seems to take place while Graham is still in his formal attire. I'm not sure if we will change back into them, but that does certainly raise questions for that picture. As for the dark figure in it, it seems to match up with a depiction of Shadrack used in a wallpaper a while back.
This is Nifty, Royal Heir.

I'm like, an adult now or something? Sounds fake, but okay.

06. Are we Actually going to Explore The Isle Of The Mist, because dont tell me we will Never Return to the Isle of Sacred Mountain.

Well, the arch druid said you could walk around on the isle, probably to get ingredients. And you got 'permission' from the winged ones to go to their city, if you can reach it, which, you probably will  ;)

Exactly what I thought, what the Arch Druid says obviously points that we are going to be looking for ingredients there in Ep2. Also, the Winged Ones mention an artifact that can allow humans to fly, when I heard that I thought we would get to use that artifact and we were going to be able to navigate their city.

This looks like it could be the Winged Ones city, because of its greco-roman tone (more roman than greek actually), the Isle of the Sacred Mountain is full of greek and roman culture references (they also mention Icarus).


Do you like retro games? If you do check my YouTube channel, you might like it! :)

with a bit more colour...I think I'd like to live there  :suffer: mmm Pillars, by the looks of it Doric columns...can I change them it Ionic Capitals to suit my tastes :P

Ah the old days, actually the games would come in handy around about now when nobdy seems to be posting on the forum, and I have just seen the visitors through in work. I now have nothing to do, bring back KQ Ping Pong :D I was rubbish but atleast it gave me something to work towards ;)

All of the old TSL games are still playable through the Internet Archive. Enjoy!

Yes, I believe Graham was originally supposed to fight this monster (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bPV4s0Q5NI#t=4m58s). I think it was supposed to spawn when the "Happy 21st Birthday" banner is hit by lightning and catches fire.

I don't know why it was cut, though. Probably lack of time.

IIRC, they were going to have bosses to fight but decided to cut them to make the gameplay more closely line up with traditional adventure games... again IIRC.

I believe I read somewhere on these forums that despite the cuts, there was still going to be a boss fight, but not until later on, like in episode 5. I'm almost positive this was already said.  I'd have to look through the forums.... Anyone know what im talking about?

Yeah, I think the final fight with Shadrack (presumably) will be a boss fight, but I can't back that up with anything except my memory.

Wow. I only vaguely even remember that being on the site! Ah, but no, there aren't any ping pong games in TSL.

I think he's referring to the scene depicted, not the game.
