It seems that most of the KQ fanbase has already decided to dislike this game before they've even seen a screenshot, trailer or otherwise. This game, which isn't even out yet, seems to be disliked even more than MoE! Most of the now hip negative feelings about it have come from some very disgruntled members of one or more fangroups who are angry that TellTale was chosen and they weren't--and they've managed to poison the atmosphere surrounding this game, being negative about it at any and every turn, I guess they feel they might as well try to bring this game down and kill it before it's born out of spite.
So, is this game stillborn--Dead in the water? Has the game been doomed to fail by most of the fan base deciding not to like it, and even in many cases, refusing to play it, before they've seen even a screenshot? I think it just may be.
I think KQ fans have been spoiled in a way by the fan games and now expect an official game to in essence be nothing more than licensed fan fiction, to be a game filled to the brim with fan service wankery, twisted plots and distorted versions of the characters.
