Well, shouting isn't going to help either. When is the last time you've swayed someone's opinion on the Internet by lapsing into ALL-CAPS RAGE? Let a mod take care of Shalkar. I wouldn't be bothered by anything he says, really. He is a llama. It says so right where his avatar should be. He is, by his own volition, a despairing llama.

Hey, look what I found on deviantART!

I have no mouth, and I must scream.

I completely understand that this is a side project which generates no revenue for those working on it, and that it is a fan based project.

However, I can't deny I am sad every few months I check on this project and it seems there is no progress or updates.  I grew up watching my brothers play all the King's Quest Games, until I could play them myself, and they are very sentimental to me. I truly hope this project will be finished, because it keeps it such good form with the storyline, and all of us fans wish the story would continue on forever. 

If anything (and I know everyone has other jobs and other projects) some updates on the site about what is going on would keep people interested, because at this point - I'm about to stop looking at this site, because the first several games came out relatively quickly and this last feels like it never will.  So I might give up on it. Sad.  And I totally, TOTALLY would pay for it if that would speed things up.  I loved all the other episodes.

There is a very large group of us that feel the same way Starle. All we can do is be patient, and hope that one day we will see it.

I have to agree, the problem isn't so much that it is taking so long, but rather that there are no significant updates showing or a progress bar or something. They should dedicate some time to prepare a trailer or something or how much progress they've been making. It may mean taking longer than it already has been, but at least for us fans we will know it is coming. Movies have trailers made years before they are even out and there are constant updates, so even if TSL episode 5 is not going to come out for a few more years, it will be nice to see its progress. For me, I can wait, I am just speaking from a promotional point of view.

Thank you for not releasing this episode yet!  ;D

I appreciate all the hard work all the volunteers are putting towards this amazing project.
Thank you for not rushing to release this project before it is ready! :-*

I'm sorry, but I'm just SICK of seeing this!

Well, first: you aren't sorry at all.  On the contrary, you seem to be quite pleased with yourself.  Second: no one asked you to click on this thread, which is obviously a rant.   Thus, besides being an obvious liar, you bring your misery upon yourself
Everyone looks into a mirror through the curvature of self-justification.  Pride is a FuNHoUsE distortion.

Yeah! And at least you're funny, Numbers! (at least I think you are anyway) You may be harsh and a bit of a jerk, but at least you back up your arguments and bring up good points!

YOU on the other hand...  >:(

I've looked at your profile, reading every single post you've made on here. And every single thing you have said is condescending and negative. You NEVER say anything positive, and always try to play yourself up as "deep" when really, you're just a jerk to everyone here, bashing constantly whether it be something we say or "analyzing" why Moebius has terrible writing. Really, I believe you are the single person so far who hates Moebius. Really?! You really want a Le Serpent Rouge style puzzle? nobody liked Gabriel Knight 3's puzzles, man. For example, my defriending of Elsa and Orion's (originally it was going to be me who explained it but I lost my progress when my phone blipped) explanation.

"Presently, I am wondering at what time the term "pen pal" became synonymous with the word "friend" and devoting consideration as to how the word "friend has been completely devalued by cyberspace.    "Friend" has no meaning if you can "defriend" on a whim."

1. You don't use Facebook do you?

2. Have you never met a person, became friends with them, then realized, "I don't want to be friends with you anymore,"?

"Are you certain that person has changed?   Maybe it is you who have changed."

You make it sound like a bad thing that Orion cut all ties with Elsa at all! She insulted us both, lured Orion into a false sense of security, got constantly jealous of me and tried to shut me down because I was "spamming" the group she was in and heavily implied that I was stupid for resisting and standing up to her. Considering that I am a sufferer of Asperger's Syndrome, yeah, that's a big no no. She's bipolar, hypocritical, homophobic and psycho. There's a reason why we call her the Psycho Cypriot and joke that she found the Necrophilicon, mistaking it for a bible. And yet, it sounds like you're taking her side when you ask if it was Orion had changed. If he has, it was for the better, I'd say.

I am not pleased with myself, raVen image. I truly am getting very annoyed with seeing all these posts asking the same damn question; when is Episode 5 coming out? and people whining about it being delayed. Look, I'm anxious for it to end as well as I've been waiting two and a half to three years for ep.5 to be released, but I am patient. Boopish seems to be the only sane one here and pretty much is saying what I'm thinking.

I will say one thing about you that's appreciated, though. You keep your posts short, unlike Baggins, whom I can't even get through a single post from him on here because he goes on and on and on about how, "You're not following canon to the letter! Waaah! Q_Q" and nitpicking and bashing every single detail of TSL, even stuff that doesn't matter like the color of the bricks on the Isle of Wonder's Pun Garden wall.

I know that tensions are high but this doesn't help the team. When I left, people were still working on it and trying their best to make a game that you would like. What was happening before I left and the reason why I left, was I no longer had time to dedicate. People would leave faster than we could replace them and with the economy as bad as it is, volunteer work isn't that desirable when you need to pay the bills. Another thing that happened was we grew up. When I started on this project I was 22 and in college. I'm 27 now and an inclusion teacher, working on my masters and teaching an after school program. I just couldn't do it anymore when life started to play it's cards.

I know that a lot of you want the game, but when this story happens to the team and those people can't be replaced, you end up with a slow production. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have to help ease the tensions if you wish. :)

Here's a question that should calm everybody right down: does everyone die at the end?

I can't answer that because it's the plot but I will say that you will be satisfied with how it ends.  ;)

Okay... I trust you...

No, really, I do. Please don't let me down. Both Orion and I hope and want a happy ending, but he doubts it'll happen because it's apparently popular not to, these days. What? Just because it's popular doesn't mean it MUST be done! ...Right? I mean,
Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

So, please, don't fail us!

You do know I was being sarcastic, right? Usually those kinds of questions stir people up more.

Hi again. I realized tonight I don't want to complain anymore about the 5th installment. When it's done it's done. I've read what was said about me an don't exactly understand what a llama but I seen pictures an definations of it. Not that it bothers me but I prefer to make friends on this board. :)

I do like the games that Phoenix advertises. Face Noir really touched me an would love to play the 2nd part but I have to wait. Good things are worth waiting for.

I know The Silver Lining Episode 5 will be out soon I just know it. King's Quest IV was my First Adventure game ever when I was 9 years old. Then I played all the adventure games. I enjoy my youthful days growing up to these games.

Thank you Phoenix. Shalkar
