Will Telltale's King's Quest be Based on the Novels?

posted by philthethrill on - last edited - Viewed by 668 users

I was just wondering if the King's Quest games from Telltale will be based on the King's Quest novels. IA's next King's Quest game will be based on the novel Kingdom of Sorrow. http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/King%27s_Quest:_Kingdom_of_Sorrow

I was wondering if Telltale plans on doing the same thing with the other two novels, The Floating Castle http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/King%27s_Quest:_The_Floating_Castle and See No Weevil http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/King%27s_Quest:_See_No_Weevil.

  • I am pretty sure they will be telling original stories and not making adaptations...

  • I trust these games will be great, but I really want Tell Tell to announce any plans to produce games for the rest of the Sierra Adventure games line-up.

    What about Quest for Glory, Space Quest, and Police Quest? They deserve a return!

    Leisure Suit Larry was all used up by Funsta and deserve to retire.

  • No, I want Larry back! The real Larry. Except he would be quite old now.

  • I don't see Quest for Glory working in an episodic format. That series deserves a proper full length game, it is an RPG after all. That means there needs to be time to build one's character.

    Though seeing the direction the industry has taken I wouldn't be surprised if Activision tried to turn it into an MMORPG.

    The crappy Larry games do have the original Larry in them as the new Larry's uncle. He's portrayed as a really old, that is dirty old man.

  • Okay. I never could seriously contemplate playing those games, so I did not know that. I wish they had left the original Larry out completely, so there would have been minimal overlap.

  • I'm not sure how he appears in the first Larry lovage game actually. I just know in the newest one he is pretty vile somewhat creepy old guy, owner of a porn studio. I haven't played the game just watched a few videos of it on YouTube.

    The newest game sorta re-imagines Lovage as well, makes him look like he's in his twenties. The art style is very differnment than the previous Larry games.

    The first Lovage game actually resembled the art style from previous games. Lovage practically looked like his uncle's twin. So I wouldn't be surprised if Laffer looked similar to his original appearance in that game. Only thing I've read about it is he is their mainly as a cameo, not much actual involvement.

    Come to think of it, I understand there was a cell phone game starring Lovage but shared the Love for Sail title. It was an original story apparently. The strange thing was the reviews were fairly descent and some saying it got the feel of the old adventure games.

    It starred Laffer and was an actual adventure game. Ken Williams and Al Lowe appeared appeared as characters. You could tell the creators were fans of the original series.

  • Interesting... the UI bit in the bottom left corner looks like an evolution of the Sierra P/C interface.
