I wonder if there's any possibility that the staff members are under NDAs or something, and thus can't really say anything.  Mostly I'm considering this due to the recent interest with King's Quest, not only from the 2015 game by The Odd Gentlemen, but also the hint from Microsoft that they'd possibly like to see something done with the franchise.

The only other thing that makes any sense to me is that they don't want to show progress with episode 5 until they're absolutely certain that they can see it through to completion.  That's more or less what was said in the last video update at the end of 2017 (which I know was before the news post in 2019 promising more updates, but still).

Admittedly, I didn't enjoy TSL too much when I played it some years back (although I really should play it again to see if my opinion has changed), but I'd still like to see the project completed, especially when it's this close to the end.

I totally agree with you I think it has to do with something they're not saying or not allowed to say and it makes sense that due to Microsoft buying Activision which owns the king's quest series and rights that they may want to have a new game with today's technology and today's abilities to make a really good RPG hopefully like a remake of Roberta Williams's amazing productions back in her time I guess we'll just have to wait and see if they ever say anything.

Is the name of the episode still: Episode 5: A Thousand Times Goodnight?
Grateful about a free game currently in development & offering support to the dev team in hopes the final episode will be released. Will keep waiting for updates.

I would naturally assume so. Why?

I believe it used to be called "Goodnight, Sweet King" but was changed to "A Thousand Times Goodnight" later on.

O wow this still hasn't been finished?  World war 2 could have been fought twice in the amount of time it took them to finish 1/5th of this game.

To be fair this is a $0 fan game
We're lucky the 1st 4 were made at all
Given the ambition of episode 5 going full 3d, something I don't believe they've done on any commercial game they made since. I do wish they kept with the same engine and kept all the same assets. I thought it was gorgeous and more than adequate to tell the story. I think the decision to move that way, the 3d motion capture and all that jazz, was an effort to use this as a playground to perfect techniques they could use in their other actually sold commercial offerings.
It's entirely possible they've received a cease and desist and an NDA hence us not knowing anything. If that is the case I would guess the lawyers would want this taken off the site (it's still there with the last update from 2019 before the pandemic hit. That too could explain extra slowness in this project's development.

I personally very much loved this series and really want to know how it ends, would even settle for a mock up script just to know what happens. I, like Robertta Williams herself, very much love the writing and story so far!

What's going on? Is Phoenix still working on the game?
