The only game of theirs I was interested in was Back To The Future.  Bought the DVD version when it came out, and finally got around to playing it a little over 2 years ago...

Got stuck in the first episode trying to break old Doc out of jail -- terrible controls, and I couldn't figure out how to get the thug behind the counter in the... soup kitchen(?), I think... to leave -- and haven't touched it since...

...Except just now to view the last autosave to see exactly how long ago I stopped playing it.

A shame, too.  I liked the premise, AJ's performance of Marty was quite convincing, and the recreation of the movie events at the beginning was terrific...

I hope it works. I've been hoping for QfI2 because the first part has quite an open ending.

It's not official / cannon, but...

Three-and-a-half years ago, I made a joke in another IQ thread that there was a "special" ending to QFI which gave a preview of QFI2.  I even provided a summary for everyone who couldn't find it in the game -- which was everyone, because it's not there.  It was all just nonsense I made up to tease my fellow QFI fans.

I still believe it has the feel of how a QFI2 sequel might start...

...the only people who got those were making way too much noise about their games. With the exception of Phoenix Online and The Silver Lining, where I think that was more a rabid and loud number of their fans were making way too much noise.

Sounds like it's a good thing that IA/IQ fans are more of the "sedated and mute" variety...

Hell, some might even go as far to say that IA/IQ fans are practically non-existent !!!

aha!  I've played The Order of the Thorne.  I hope that they will come out with another one once Roehme to Ruin is complete when Bt is better.

Yes, the plan is to finish the story with the second game, The Order Of The Thorne: Fortress Of Fire:

In the Land of Sunlight, the sudden appearance of a mysterious, menacing fortress plunges the isolated kingdom into darkness.  Brother Caradoc, a Knight in the Order Of The Thorne, and his squire, Patrick, are sent to find Brother Eoin and discover the cause of the chaos.  However, upon their arrival in the desolate land, Brother Caradoc is captured and Patrick is wounded.  Alone and untested, the young squire must now rescue Caradoc and defeat the Fortress of Fire.

I really want to see Kingdom of Sorrow.  Is there a download link for that anywhere for those of us who want to play it?    I think that it was unfinished, but it would still be neat-o to see what was developed.

Klytos specifically referenced the "never-going-to-be-released Kingdom of Sorrow" build, so I'm pretty sure that KOS won't ever be released...  Besides, most of the art assets were re-used for The Order Of the Thorne: The King's Challenge.

Likely, Klytos or someone will simply showcase a quick demo of KOS for what WAS completed...

For those of us unfortunate saps who missed the #KingsQuestForSteve video stream, will there be a link to the video anywhere?

I'm especially curious to see the "never-going-to-be-released Kingdom of Sorrow" build that Klytos made in action.

Backed this one from the first Kickstart, haven't had a chance to start it yet, but after seeing a demo some time back, I'm cautiously optimistic.

However, I'm not a fan of the "wrong place / wrong time" type of game, where you might miss crucial information and clues for no good reason -- it's penalizing the player through no fault of his/her own.  (Never got into Colonel's Bequest because of this.)

HOWEVER, it _is_ a good excuse for contrived replayabilty -- just to get all of the information you may have missed ... that is, if you liked the game enough the first time around !  ::)

Thanks guys another quick question. I am trying to sneak into the building to kill the slave trader, but apparently I do not have enough stealth skills. How much stealth skills do I need?

That I'm not sure of; my Brigand character had a stealth of 50 when I last played him, and I defeated the slave trader just fine...

I'm afraid one of the developers would have to tell you the minimum stealth skill you would need.

Visa the Hunter can usually be found in one of the 4 screens at the North end of the South Woods; I believe it's designed to be a random encounter.

The helpful hunter will want payment of a sort for his help, but he does offer a couple of options, so you can choose how you want to pay him.

Hi guys the book has a map which is helpful for finding everything. I have found the swamp, however I have talked to the boy completely and he will not give me the empty jar. I have looked through the book and there is nothing to mention about this problem. Please help

Try again -- there should be a keyword: Glass Jar

(You'll have to ask him about several other topics before getting to the "Glass Jar" and "Glowing Fungus".)

If Hobbs says he's already given you his last one, perhaps it's already in your inventory?...

Thanks guys just wondering how much is the strategy guide and where to find it. Also I found out that I purchased and forgotten that I have bought from Amazon the official companion quest for infamy art book and hint guide. Is this the same thing? Thank you again

Looking over my digital copy, it should be the same.  It will help you complete the game, but as Kaldire said, it doesn't have "everything" in it.

One of those missing topics is a bonus quest (all classes can participate) where you find the hidden "Infamous Quests" Bar and battle Blackthorne himself; you need to perform certain tasks at certain times during the game in order to trigger this intricately hidden easter egg...
