I'm pretty sure our Graham has the feather consistently on one side, though which one escapes me at the moment.

That's pretty funny about KQ5 though!

I would imagine it would be pretty easy to keep track of in a 3D game like TSL, since you're just reusing the same character model.  However, I did notice that the feather is on the opposite side in the TSL episode 3 poster of Graham on horseback than it is in TSL Daventry family closeup portraits.  ;)

I want to see the scene that was cut from the game where he changes the position of the feather XD There has to be one. It couldn't possibly be an artist mistake...  ::)

It's not actually in a fixed location, so he finds himself having to replace it fairly often (that's what the dark spots are for between scenes, him picking it back up and putting it back).  It's sort of like Eeyore's tail.

My theory is Graham has a secret stash of hundreds of Adventurer's Cap, and he just chooses whichever version will be the most dashing in his next scene. I mean, adventure. ;)

That works too. And it kind of makes sense too I suppose...

So that means that if I make the darn thing explode at the end, I won't be done with it? I tell you, this game will always haunt me!

MI mentioned in another thread that we are halfway there. No, no, no. Let me clarify. 60%! 60%!! We are 60%! closer to getting done with this and being able to put it behind! But now there's this cap incident. Hmmm.

Well, when you work with an odd number it's not easy to think of the exact precentage....when it's late. Besides, the game isn't out yet so technically you're not FULLY there with Episode 3 yet so you COULD say that you're halfway there. ;)

As a math person, I have to chime in.  No way is it 60% done...my guess is closer to 50%.  Episode 1 and two could easily be combined into 1 one episode and it would rival the length of the other episodes.  All comments from the team is that the episodes are longer as we continue, so that is obviously a rough estimation.  If 1 and 2 combine to be 1 episode then you have done 2 of the 4, thus 50%.  Half way there.  ;)

Please Cez, Combine Ep1 and Ep2 then we still have 4 Episodes in the end, even though Ep5 is New, it would still be Ep4 or you guys could make a Shocking Ep5 aka Ep6  :P ::) :suffer:

Episodes 1-3 are all combined on your computer now, there'd be absolutely no reason to combine 1 and 2 at this point.

Episode 5 already is the shocking Episode 6 - they mentioned this a while back. Also, when it's all done, there will hopefully be an "Episode 0," which is all of the episodes combined into one.

Ah, episode 6. How I miss thee. Now we have a measly five episodes. Don't worry though; you're getting the same amount of information, if not more, with the new episode 5. And by episode 0, I believe you're referring to the directors cut.

Yeah. It's been mentioned in interviews. We don't know if we're actually going to do it at this point, but it's a possibility.

This really needs to happen.  In another thread back during episode 1 it was mentioned that it would allow for all islands to be open to travel from the beginning and some of tyhe items/puzzles would get moved around a bit.  I think this would be great for the game.  It would add a layer of difficulty and it would remove the restrictions placed by the episodic format (which should have been a dead giveaway activision was working with telltale).

I agree.  I would enjoy it so much more like that.  I am really not a fan of the episodic format to be honest.

Yes, I am referring to the Director's Cut. It's referred to as Episode 0 in the code (though it's not currently playable as such, even in the full development build).  It would require a substantial amount of reworking of the logic, since the story still needs to follow some sort of logical progression. It would be very cool, though!

It would add a layer of difficulty and it would remove the restrictions placed by the episodic format (which should have been a dead giveaway activision was working with telltale).
Actually, I don't think the episodic format has anything to do with Telltale's upcoming KQ reboot, although I believe it was inspired by Telltale's game format.
