Honestly I seriously doubt they have any intention of developing any new Kings Quest games. I would say its only that they dont want any competition with their re-release of the older games.


Lets think this one through. They know full well they can cash in by just dusting off the old games and selling them. This is just a one time dip for cash in a market that has these collections over priced. Its one thing to do a quick re-release of old material to make a few bucks on us collectors. Its an enterly different thing to spend the millions it would cost to develop and produce a new game.


My advice, dont get your hopes up. I think they just dont want us thinking about anything else but their new collections, thats all. If they werent doing the collections they probably wouldnt care.

If I am right then they are being first class losers. But thats life

If you are right they are extremely stupid because the only thing this free game would do would be to boost sales of the collection through increased awareness.

Yeah, I think Mcdonis is right on the money here. They probably did this for two reasons -- 1 - the project was nearing completion (they probably didn't think that it would seriously be made) and 2 - they're re-releasing the Quest games in compilations. Austin is right that it's dumb for them to do this though. The fact that they knew about KQ9 all along and chose WEEKS before its release to shut them down is a d**k move on VU's part, and it makes me not want to buy the new compilations. And I had been planning to buy every single one of them, even the Police Quest one, and I have never had any interest in the PQ games before.

I'm starting to become very synacle about big corporations like I am about big Government (this is typical of Americans btw). These things get so big that the leaders completely lose contact with reality and only keep contact with each other. Microsoft is guilty of this too, with putting so many security checks on their products that their friendly fire hurts people that aren't pirating. But to a bunch of pampered whiny businessmen, it seems like a good idea.

Big Corporations should learn to stay in contact with reality. They are necessary for mass production of games but it is not necessary for them to be so stupid.

Like I said, if they're serious about releasing KQIX, all they have to do is change a few things at the minimum and VU can't do anything even if they wanted to. Release a game with no actual King's Quest names or likenesses and then some "unknown" person can release an unofficial patch that changes everything back to how it was meant to be.

I am very dissapointed in Venvedi. But if Pheonix just completely roles over and dies I'll be dissapointed in them too. At least release something. Patch it up. Change it around. But don't freaking let all that work go to waste.
