Nice, especially as i've stumbled over the Hal Barwood interview.
What i don't understand is why they are all after graphics, roleplaying like character evolution and things like that. To me the story, puzzles and characters are the most important thing. I don't care this much about graphics as long as i like the style. I still would love buying games like Fate of Atlantis if they would look like Fate of Atlantis as long as they have the same length and quality inside.
And when i read things like that they can't make the game as long as the games before because they need to invest ressources into the graphics then sorry for me they are investing their money into the wrong direction as the adventure games work more like books for me. As long as the paper isn't the cheapest one and the font is readable all is fine.
I don't have something against better graphics, improved animations and so on but when it comes at the costs of the core of an adventure game then i dont need it. There are quite some possibilities making games looking nice to a certain degree without time intensive heavy gfx stuff and you also can reach more people due to the lower system specs. Proper art pays out much better here in my opinion.
Anyway i've no idea if and how much i'm part of a minority with that but that's how i feel about it.
Ranting: Gimme back some real adventures and keep your half baked mainstream stuff! :O)
