Sorry to interrupt the discussion.
I'm a newcomer to the series and just decided to give KQ a try a few months ago.
I saw this thread and seeing it was created by Rather Dashing, became curious what is his vision of the artistic style of KQ should be as a big fan
Seeing that the series is apparently has a fantasy Narnia-esque atmosphere (as far as I read your comments), I thought I should introduce a game that in my opinion
successfully manages to create Lush forest atmospheres.
. (Images below are taken from the respective screen-shot gallery
of AdventureGamers.com )
They are researching for ways that makes them able to make such painting like atmospheres even better.
PS: @RatherDashing: Sorry for posting your first re-action. Don't be ashamed of it, I had my embarresing first reactions too ...
I'll remove it if you want me to.
