Quote"In the companion it says Hagatha is Mordack's sister and she's a member of the BCS aswell."
QuoteWell, if Roberta had more control over moe, maybe it might not have been the disaster it is. I would like to see a remake of moe, with a story to it. Somebody should remake moe as a true adventure game.
QuoteYes, this was the only KQ game that was not fully developed at one location. The idea was to leverage the 3D engine Dynamic was building in Eugene. We were to use their engine and focus mostly on content. The problem was that the engine work ended up WAY behind schedule and that had disastrous results on our content development. To make a long story short, we finally took what they had and finished it ourselves. Unfortunately, by the time we did this the project was way behind schedule, way over budget, and we still didn't have an engine. We scrambled to complete the project and it unfortunately showed. It saddens me to have had the King's Quest series end with a product that suffered so.So yes, many things were cut - the leprechaun, the Red Capped goblin, I think two complete levels, and then MANY major cutbacks on what is there. As you point out, a good example is the Swamp Witch. In the original script as it was developing, her part was much larger. But as we had to devote time to technical issues, the esthetic issues and the amount of detail and breadth of content continued to get chopped. Remember, this was also right at the time the industry was saying that "Adventure gaming is dead." It was not easy to convince marketing to invest more to develop an adventure game. The end result was that we shipped what we could, and it was a pretty sad showing for such a great series.

Quote from: lil_saintmc on February 23, 2007, 04:22:02 AMBut if you think about it, how many members are left? Ok, Mordack was evaporated, Mannannan is a cat, Alhazred is in prison, and then theres Shadrack. The team also said that they would keep to the original story line. So they can't include members into the black cloak society for example THE FATHER! Unless Shadrack is the Father. Personally, I believe that Mordack will stay dead, Hagatha will return to take Valinice, Mannannan will return to human form but with cat eyes to make him super scary, Alhazred will get out of the slammer. So a final conclusion; Villans will likely be Shadrack, Alhazred, Mannannan and Hagatha. Thats it.

QuoteAs her name explains it, she's quite "a dark lady" into what her structure is in the game
