I always suspected that a Telltale King's Quest-series would be the only thing that could bring Emily back to the TTG-forums.
The last time I played King's Quest was years and years and years ago, and I couldn't get into it back then. I've always been a Lucasarts adventures-man. I'm pretty interested in checking them out though. I like the fact that you can't get into dead ends in the fan remakes (and I'm not talking about dying, but about getting your game in an unwinnable state. I hate that). I'll download those remakes and I'll check them out when I've got some time in a week or so. A couple of questions for people who know more about this than me:
* Is it possible to get your game in an unwinnable state in the later games of the series (the ones that they didn't remake), or was that something that only plagued the early entries? That would be enough for me to not even try to start the later games.
* How different are the remakes to the originals? I'm pretty impressed with the amount of work they put into the backgrounds, voice acting and gameplay updates, but I'm not the biggest fans of fan remakes expanding/changing the storylines of the originals. Do the remakes stay true to the spirit of the originals?
* How connected are the different games in the series? I always got the impression that every game was pretty much a standalone mix of various random fairytales.
I'm actually rather curious to play these games again after all those years. The complete pack is only 10 dollars on steam, so I might buy them if I like the remakes.
