The other playable character
« on: February 25, 2011, 06:56:24 AM »
So the Jan 24 news post (I can't find a way to perma-link it) mentioned that there would be a second playable character in Episode 5.  My guess is that that character is ...

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

EDIT:  I realize that this game was designed by Jane Jensen fans, and in Jensen's games significant characters can die or have otherwise tragic outcomes so ...

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

... but since I think what I put under spoiler #2 is highly unlikely, so I stick by the guess I made under spoiler #1

I do love that you consider the Lieutenant ;)

That would be fun - we'd get to hear more of Katie! Maybe she could defeat Shadrack by shouting at him. :P

:rofl: Katie, you need to be the voice of a main character for an upcoming POStudios game, using that same voice. I'm serious. Wouldn't it be awesome if the lieutenant was the new playable character?

While I might have fun with that, I do rather doubt that it would add much to the story ;)

It turns out that Lt. Shorty is actually the product of an illicit affair between Valanice and Saladin. That's her "dirty little secret"! XD

If one of the royal family is killed off, I think we will see a good old fashioned internet lynching from King's Quest fans.   :suffer:

It has to be Edgar. He's been lounging around the in past few episodes. About time he made himself useful as practically the newest member of the family. I always wanted to use his fairy magic on someone.

They'd have to do an impressive job with him, because he doesn't feel like lead character material. I'd personally like to play the Ranger :) THAT would be awesome

I can see it being Valanice, or Cassima, Edgar. Likely Valanice, since she's become such a focus character.

[EDIT] Or Connor, as some have suggested. It would be nice if the team fit the Mask plot line into this overall narrative a bit better.

ACTUALYL- what would TRUELY be badass, would be playing a Black cloak member- like Manannan. As much as we all hate him, perhaps there could be a playable thing in team evil? That'd be a REAL surprise in a King's Quest game- playing team evil.

I'm not sure if you've ever played this game before but if you have- remember how cool it was to play as Gongora in the Lost Odyssey?
