Quote from: Baggins on August 17, 2010, 01:34:19 AMActually it can be said that each of the games in the KQ series were innovated in some way, and reinvented some aspect of the Adventure game genre as a whole. There were usually a vocal group of "KQ fans" that complained each time in some way (accusing the games of not being "King's Quest" enough).Point of note MOE wasn't a "failure" as such. It was the best selling KQ game ever actually. Sold more than each previous game in the series. It sold more than Grim Fandango as well. It also had mostly decent ratings at the time. Most were over 70%.If it had remained like the original games it probably still would have sold well, but still wouldn't have been enough for the bean counters at Sierra though (who weren't looking for a successful adventure game, but something that could compete with more popular genres of the time).The truth is that adventure games in general just weren't successful anymore, compared to other games out there.

Quote from: jackinthebox1138 on August 17, 2010, 10:39:28 AMRipping off the characters and settings from someone else's IP does not make your game "true" to that world.

If you wanted to do something so original and "true to your vision," you should try creating some original characters, not just riding on the shoulders of someone else's success.
Quotenew...settings in order to remain "true" to an existing series? That doesn't really make any sense.
