Safe to say that this is in development hell?

A couple of my friends asked me about Telltale's take on King's quest. They heard about it ever since they announced that they were going to do it. So far, nothing new has been brought out about the game. So is it safe to say that this game is in development hell? Thats what alot of my friends are coming down with a conclusion for the lack of updates on the development on this.

  • Takes From Kings Quest?

    Nah, Tales From Monkey Island season 2 please. More fans, more opportunities.

  • I want to see a new story in the King's Quest universe. And a fresh sensibility, quite honestly -- I've played and enjoyed the old games, but I want to see some new ideas brought to bear.

    Good post. I think it would also be great if the game was divided into nine chapters. Three in which you play Graham, three Alexander, and three Rosella. What do you guys think?

  • Three in which you play Graham, three Alexander, and three Rosella.

    That's way too many characters to focus on in short chunks that Telltale offers, it would dillute the story too much. I'd prefer if it sticks to one or at the most two characters.

    I'd be more affraid that it would end up turning KQ more int Sam & Max Season 1 where there are several separate stories, but a very weak overall connecting story.

    Tales of Monkey Island's progression is closer to what I want to see... A good story, that grows as each chapter is released, and becomes more complicated. Not a bunch of more or less stand alone stories.

    I'd personally prefer if they focus on a single character, for 'season 1', and if its successful, focus on a new character for 'season 2'.

  • I'd love if the game had two protagonists: Graham, first and primarily, and Rosella secondly. My two favorite KQ protagonists.

    Or...Why not drift a little from the usual? How about a KQ game which has one of the Royal "In Laws" as a protagonist--For example Edgar or Cassima?

  • Though I'd love to see Edgar & Cassima get their chance to shine, I don't think that'd be a good idea for this game. For a series' return, using the most well-known protagonists of the old games is the best bet--and that's Graham (follow-ups being Alex & Rosella).. Edgar & Cassima could maybe work for a second new game, so long as they're introduced in the first new one.

  • It's not in Development Hell, it's just still really early in development, and Telltale is pretty bad with giving out information.

    I wouldn't expect to hear anything about KQ until at least Fables finishes.

  • Heh. Yeah. Really early development. Yep. That's it.


    Bt

  • To be honest, I'm not sure TTG should have even mentioned it as early as they did. If they're not going to talk about it or give updates or anything at all, they shouldn't have dangled it in front of us so soon.

    Seriously. KQ doesn't require a reboot/sequel, and if TTG hadn't mentioned it, they would have been within their rights to back out. Now that everyone is talking about it, they would tick people off if they changed their minds.

  • I'm still under the assumption that it isn't in development at all. Telltale puts their stuff together pretty quickly once they get rolling and they typically start marketing it pretty early on too so I doubt there's anything going on with this at all yet, but I still wander by once a month or so to see if there's any news.

    And my bet is that they would call it "Tales of Daventry."
