Quote from: Numbers on March 02, 2015, 05:56:59 PMThere's something important that needs to be addressed. I guess I'll be the one to say it. It's been about four years since TSL Episode 4 was released. In that interim, we've had a few amusing images on the forums courtesy of Stika, and an updated Episode 5 texture for things we've already seen before. And we've had nothing else. There hasn't been a trailer, much less any screenshots. Nobody seems to know when it will be released, or if they do, they don't want to admit it. I can't remember the last time Cez posted anything on here. Recently, Rock Knight and me asked the very valid question of why the soundtrack for Episodes 3 and 4 can't be released, and we've gotten no response, other than it's supposed to be released when Episode 5 is. Whenever that is.I don't want people to blindly jump to POStudios' defense here. I don't want blind approval of my own argument either. I don't want anyone to accuse me of trying to start a smear campaign, or that I'm flaming the studio. I don't want people to dogpile on POStudios. I don't want another response of "we're working on it, we promise," or "be patient," or "buy our official games and maybe you'll get it sooner."All I want is for POStudios to cut the crap.I want them to give us a reason to keep hanging onto TSL, because currently, we have no reason to do so. We've seen almost no proof that Episode 5 is considered any kind of priority for POStudios. I want them to prove to us that they still consider the game worth finishing. I want to know exactly how much or how little manpower is on the project, and how much or how little work they do on it everyday. I want to know if they're willing to take on additional support, and I will gladly be a moderator if you wish me to be, since that's the only contribution I could possibly give. I want to know if TSL, the closest we'll get to a grand finale for the original KQ series, will be finished sometime before yet another cease-and-desist order inevitably comes knocking at the door.Furthermore, I want an answer from one of the higher-ups. Not from Stika, not from any of the moderators. I want an answer from either KatieHal or Cez, someone who knows all the answers.And let me reiterate, I don't want people to take my constructive criticisms and pitch a temper tantrum over them. I don't want people to accuse me of being audacious, or of possessing anti-POStudios sentiment, because I don't. I want everyone to read this and come to their own conclusions without jumping onto any bandwagon, or taking sides without formulating their own opinions.POStudios, this is your chance to shine. This is your chance to be upfront with us. We don't want to see you come so close to closing out King's Quest only to choke right when it mattered the most. We want to believe in you, but we can't, and this is your chance to bring us hope again.Please give us something, anything. Please don't let us down.
