King's Quest NEEDS to have deaths.

There needs to be at least one way to trigger an elaborate and utterly arbitrary death cutscene on every single screen.

Am I wrong? :D

(Bonus points if the narrator mocks your corpse with cheesy wordplay afterwards.)

    Why are you diametrically opposed to anyone other than Scott Murphy working on a Space Quest game, but are fine with Josh Mandel rather than Roberta Williams for King's Quest?

  • @Shadowchild said: KQ5 was the best of the KQ games hands down. From the setting, the graphics and the difficulty I thought it was the most enjoyable of the bunch. After that the series went downhill fast (with 6 being ok, 7 and 8 being really bad).

    I'm with you on that! It's all about King's Quest 5 for me.. thats the level/style Telltale need to hit

    Because Josh Mandel understands the importance of preserving an established style and staying consistent with it, and is still very interested in gaming, both from a design and business standpoint. Roberta, on the other hand, is retired, doesn't have any desire to get back into the business, and frankly, was always a little too focused on fixing things that weren't broken to begin with from a game design standpoint, hence the abomination that is Mask of Eternity. ;) (Actually, I like Mask of Eternity, but you can't deny its black sheep status.)

    I would like TT to get Jane Jensen over Josh Mandel since I firmly believe she is the sole reason why King's Quest 6 was written so well. The last I have heard, she created a game for a french company.

  • The game is Gray Matter, written by Jane, with music by Robert Holmes (the Gabriel Knight composer). Developed by the French Wizarbox and published in German-speaking territories by dtp entertainment AG late last year, it is set for US and British release in just a few more days. :)

    True, but Josh Mandel is the reason the KQ1 SCI remake was written so well. I really love to see them both involved with the project.

  • Jane Jensen is massively overrated.

  • I would also like to see Josh Mandel involved, if the stars aligned in that direction.

    I'm not sure if I'd lobby for Jane Jensen to work on a King's Quest game. I mean, I love KQ6 and I think a large part of why I love it is due to her involvement. But I think she's at her best when she's telling a darker type of story and KQ tends to be more family friendly.

    That I did not know

    Not as overrated as Roberta Williams. ;P
