"Yo, Dave Grossman! Why do you ignore KQ fans?"

Attn. Dave Grossman:

Why have you made next to no effort to reach out to King's Quest fans? What is going on with the KQ plans you announced years ago?

Is it true that you and Telltale Games no longer have any interest in traditional adventure games with challenging puzzles?

I don't believe the suggestions that you used the traditional adventure gamer community in the past and have since tossed them aside when you didn't need them anymore, but I will admit that it would be nice to get even a little communication from you.

Thank you for your time.

  • Why are you singling him out? There's quite a few people who are higher up in the company than him.

  • You are very presumptuous for someone who's only been here a month. Makes me think this isn't the first time you've had an account here.

  • Tossed the adventure game community aside?

    After the train wreck that was Jurassic Park, yeah, no one came looking for community feedback and suggestions did they? Oh wait. Dan did.

  • I don't think there's much point to singling out Dave Grossman. For starters, he doesn't post here often. Also, he hasn't been directly involved in a Telltale game since Episode 4 of Back to the Future. Yes, every game (King's Quest included, if it ever comes) credits him as the "director of design," but I'm pretty sure that's a fancy way of saying he's an advisor/overseer with no direct involvement. Kind of like how every Double Fine game credits Tim Schafer as "Creative Director."

    I'm upset about the silence regarding King's Quest too, but calling out Telltale employees both annoys them and doesn't help you. Besides, pretty much everyone with the authority to say something regarding KQ only posts once in a blue moon.

  • Telltale's King's Quest plans are cancelled; it just hasn't been publicly announced yet.

    Any proof of that beyond an extended lack of communitcation and the lack of an open forum on the beta?

  • @RAnthonyMahan said: I'm upset about the silence regarding King's Quest too, but calling out Telltale employees both annoys them and doesn't help you.

    I bet it's not only the employees that get annoyed by such posts.

    Now I'm not here to defend them, but, it really doesn't help your case to start complaining about something you either won't ever get or will eventually get. If you won't get it, tough shit, but life goes on. It's just a video game. If I was bothered about every time we didn't get a new Star Fox or an F-Zero I would go bald.

    As others have said, Dave Grossman doesn't post here often. Plus a post challenging the views of a single developer isn't appropriate when Telltale Games is a team effort.

    Please keep the constructive criticism and questions in the Telltale and puzzles thread.
