Banter and Chit-Chat! / Re: Remakes and "demakes"
« Last post by Blake00 on September 20, 2020, 01:19:48 AM »
Damn.. I remember speaking to a girl working on a KQ4 remake a few years ago.. although there were 2 girls working on 2 different KQ4 remakes as I remember suggesting they link up and chat about a possible resource pooling and collaboration but doubt they ever did. I wonder which one it was that I talked to. Either way that's very sad news.

Also that screenshot isn't loading which is strange considering it was only posted a few weeks ago lol.

She wasn't old; early 30s or late 20s.

Blake, didn't I send that to you? Bugger. I'm so sorry. Can you PM me your address again, i'll get it out Monday.

Nah I think you forgot mate haha. I didn't wanna pester you as I feel bad bothering Steve when he's unwell and you when you're busy with the Sierra book. No worries mate I'm PM you. :)

Yeah, that KQIV remake is not happening. The girl who headed it, Karen, sadly passed away a few years ago.  She was quite young.

I dont keep up with FB either...

I'm confused

Here's a screenshot:

And an explanation that it's more of an experiment than actual plans:

Hmm a remake of IV is in the works?

Haha, nah. We've started a remake of practically every single Sierra game at some point.

So I do have to ask again, where is this game being made or half made?
whats the status also
just curious!

I do NOT agree

I do on some levels
LSL1 for example was a horrid revamp

however

look at games like XIII coming out
or system shock 1 
these games are what its about..
claiming all revamps and remakes out there are bs and political or have agenda is misinformation

most of the revamps are there to get games even working without vm boxes or to completely redo it
in the case of  the two games i listed, both are totally redone 100%
new voice acting and gfx and UI
XIII is said to even have different levels and story changes
while system shock will remain the same maps with added awesomeness

then there are the games like grim fandago revamp which add awesome stuff like commentary PLUS no elevator bug!
etc etc

so whilst I do agree on some level about leaving originals alone there are some games you can never purchase
NOLF for example, no one lives forever 1 and 2, you can NOT find this game to buy digitally due to lame IP issues
If XIII does solid I hear NOLF will be making its way back

So try not to lump everything in one box, in any format not just games but life
its like movies I have dozens I wish were never remade or redone
and yet tons that the remakes are just wicked awesome
LOTR had a cartoon as a kid for me and to see it vamped up to the newer movies was awesome
though star wars is touch and go for me I did like rogue one which was a video game and again a cartoon
I still wish to see a real revamp of "the last unicorn"
google it if you havent seen it
there is so much that is left in the dust
and some warrant redo's and some.. just dont touch it please!

case and point are the revamps done by this awesome crew.
think those shouldnt exist? I do..
Freddy pharkus part 2 please al lowe is on board!
Kings quest is a great example of failed, lame lame game that.. and I won it free in that who is the best evil villain contest(I chose prince humperdink) *im not listening !!!
 
hugs mate
