I'm a total new-comer to the series.
Then how come I decided to open a KQ fan-site?
Please, don't be afraid of my long wall of text, I've tried my best to make this an interesting read.
I didn't learn about (and got to love) adventure gameing through classic games done by LucasArts/Sierra/InfoCom.
The games that introduced me to adventure gaming first were the polished point and clicked ones of the "dark age" of adventure games, like the Neverhood and Syberia.
So, now, that I've come to know and love LucasArt's classic games after I got introduced to S&M in 2006, I finally decided to give Sierra's classics a shot after TellTale's announcement.
After playing a little bit of the old AGI engine version of the 1st KQ game
, I got hooked!
You may say I'm so easy to be pleased but no, I'm a person who can get annoyingly nitpicky about anything.
Have you ever been into a situation, where you're experiencing something new, and you get some interesting viewpoints of it from an inexperienced version of yourself perspective?, and you think: "God if I don't write these thoughts soon I'm going to forget them since I'll get used to this new experience"? Have you?
After I played [AGI Engine version of] KQ1, I got into that situation and started writing my play-through idea
, they were IMO so weird and funny that I (inspired by the fictional Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network) decided to start sharing them via blogging while playing the game.
Thus thou the idea of a play-through-blog was born.
I named it "Discovering Daventry" since I was discovering it for the first time.
and that was 6 days ago ...
How many of you are playing the series for the 1st time or replaying due to the announcement?
OK, now that you guys are more than 2 at least (I'm assuming the least possible), So, I thought, well, why wouldn't I turn the (re)play-through-blog into a blog that everyone can share their play/replay-through-blogs?
I discussed the idea of the now "reDiscovering Daventry" play/replay-through-blog with Mix'n'Mojo's administrator, Gabez, so that if he can host such blog on their network. While he was in negotiations with the admins of the LucasArtsFans Network,
(whom later said they liked the idea) I came up with another idea.
I thought, to others the name "reDiscoveringDaventry" most probably brings the presumption that the website is a fansite/news-resource for the upcoming TellTale "reDiscovery" of the KQ's Daventry world.
So I told Gabez about the potential of the shiny name "reDiscoveringDaventry.com" to be a complete fansite/news-resource for the old and upcoming KQ games/fan-games instead of a simple play/replay-through-blog.
He replied: "OK, open your website somewhere else for now ... so we can see what your website actually *is* and if it gains any attention. If it gains lots of attention and we like it, we'll host it"
The idea of the replay/play-through-blog is not dead yet, it's going to be a sub-domain of reDiscoveringDaventry named "rePlayQuest" and will be opened much sooner than the main site (hopefully in a week or so).
So here I am ... recruiting people to join me on a yet to be made reDiscoveringDaventry hosted by some free web-host and domain suffix by a free .co.cc domain.
For reDiscoveringDaventry, I'm looking for volunteer talented writers, editors and Wordpress designers.
Let's hear you out volunteers and *also* let's discuss the look and feel of the website and it's structure.
I'm working on it's look for now myself and how it's going to work.
For rePlayQuest, I'm looking for wordpress-designer for this blog as well if anyone's interested.
 - I don't mind playing old graphic adventures, to the point that I actually kind of dislike Sierra's own remake of the first game!
 - the ideas that came to my mind after playing a 1~3 minute taking segment of the game.
 - on which Mix'n'Mojo is hosted on
