Quote from: Baggins on February 04, 2011, 08:59:34 AMBTW, you mentioned the 'grey hair' in KQ5, Actually go back and play KQ4, Graham's hair is an even lighter shade of gray in that game, than in KQ5. But obviously, KQ5 isn't set before KQ4, .
QuoteAs far as the chronology goes, I think you're making the same point Damar was trying to make. There's nothing that explicitly says KQ7 comes after KQ6, but that was clearly the intent.
QuoteFor the medieval vs. modern thing - maybe KQ takes place in modern times but in a place that's isolated from the rest of the world - so they haven't caught up with everything. Plus, it's hard to know what to do with magic in a historical context...
QuoteIn AI's Hat throwing ceremony we remained rather vague as well, as to how much time had elapsed, it would be logical to suspect that it was several months but it could have also been just a couple of weeks.
QuoteI think to a certain extent some of the King's Quest games remained vague in their exact time line.
QuoteSeriously, what works for a novel wouldn't really work as an adventure game. There is little in KoS that could be compared to adventure game puzzles so it's absolutely certain you would have to make extreme liberties to make something playable and fun.
QuoteBoth KQ2 and KQ5 are vague only if one doesn't read the manuals (KQ2 manual places KQ1 one year before the game for example, and KQ5/KQ8 manual places KQ5 almost one year after KQ4), or at least if one misses a references made within another game . KQ3-4 (originals) are all pretty specific when it takes place the twins are seventeen/almost eighteen (all events are shown on screen, and/or mentioned in-game text), in-game text in KQ5 places KQ3 about twenty years after KQ2. KQ7 has the specific date for Rosella given in the introduction that she is almost twenty (which works back to KQ3, putting 1-2 years between KQ3 and KQ7). KQ6 has fairly specific references to time, and its relation to KQ5. In that gamme all references in total are just over 6 months between the games.KQ8 has absolutely no material offering a date for when it happened in relation to any other game.

Quote from: Baggins on February 08, 2011, 12:27:39 PMDifferent people find different things interesting. I'm a bit of a historian, so I find chronologies interesting.If you don't find it interesting, you don't have to read it, or take part in the discussion right? Why get involved with something you find boring?
