Quote from: dmymu02 on March 07, 2010, 01:44:42 PMAlthough it's probably beating a dead horse, I signed the petition and distributed the petition throughout the Adventure Gaming community for them to sign. I'm sure the puppets running what used to be Sierra will disregard fans with talent to make a decent chapter in the saga of Daventry, and will come out with a crap King's Quest for Next Gen consoles that's essentially a platformer just like they did with Leisure Suit Larry and almost did with Space Quest. Well, at least I signed the petition and spread the word and got my two cents in with Activision. That's if they will actually take the time to read what we have to say.An Extremely Old Time Sierra Fan,Dave
Quote from: koko_99_2001 on March 07, 2010, 01:24:21 PMI did ask if I could possibly get a name. He said that his nephew hasn't worked there in a while. Plus, we WERE on a marriage retreat, so it's not like I was really focused on TSL at that time.I know! Scandalous!
Quote from: CageyJay on March 08, 2010, 08:24:10 AMHey! Some letters will be going out soon, vectored not just to PR but also some of the other departments at Blizzard/Activision. But, eh, that's not news. We came up with another idea!Is anyone reading this a shareholder with the Activision complex? We need to start a shareholder's motion for the next shareholders' meeting. It likely wouldn't get passed, but that's not its purpose: a whole lot more shareholders than Activision realizes will recognize the "Kings Quest" trademark/series. Think about it. The youngest of us are just moving in as wage earners/spenders, the vast majority of us have been in that sector for years, and most of the older of us are investors. While lots of shareholders are too lazy to read their prospectus booklets, the people whom we want to make aware of this are just the type who WOULD read. If we get a shareholder's motion going in favor of reclaiming a license for Phoenix Online Studios, or at least in favor of securing them as Subject Matter Experts and consultants/contractors if Blizzard/Activision is trying to revive KQ itself (8 years of working with this material is about three times as long as most R&D sections get to research a sequel--they'd be stupid to reject such a resource), then even a failed motion will garner about 1000 more petition-signers and maybe 300 more letter-writers. A PASSED motion... well, you understand.So, what do you say? Are you a shareholder? Are you willing to try this?
QuoteI just came from bigbluecup forum, to find out that Ken and Roberta Williams support fan made games.

Quote from: RollingStone on March 08, 2010, 01:19:41 PMI highly recommend this site, especially this page, which contains his thoughts about aspiring game designers (he has a lot of encouragement for them), running Sierra, the difficult decision to sell the company (interesting quote: "Sierra didn't die, it was murdered"), and other topics.
