Well sir, it's no wonder, being as a certain party didn't ride a certain blond headed fat donkey out of town long ago. They didn't want to embarrass them selves and destroy their credibility.

The appointed problem is the lack of a big enough income to the professionals involved in the making of these games. People will make them for sake of love,eventually,  but it seems to be a hard job to keep on, ad aeternum, if you have  a family to care for, etc..I know nothing about this business, or how much money is needed to make the job profitable..
By the way, i think social media are venomous things too..but in this age, people makes money with adverts, publicity, and huge communities of followers...those things dont demand quality, and in general, au contraire, demands fast and furious  novelties, witch by the rule, made in haste and lacking quality. People dont await enough...
Maybe if the community (if really exists, in the necessary amount) would be more organised, more united and supportive, the cenario would be satisfactory.

Oldschool adventure games are still being made! I still prefer them, particularly the "quest" type and, of course, with pixel graphics, but it's just not true that the genre is dead.
"The Crimson Diamond"!
"Zniw Adventure"!
"Feria d'Arles" and "Bull Out of Arles"!
"Betrayed Alliance" (EGA! Text parser! And even made on SCI engine!)!
"Cascadia Quest"!
"Watch Over Christmas"!
"Future Flashback"!
"Darkside Detective"!
"If on a Winter's Night, Four Travellers..."!
"Inspector Waffles"!
"Nine Noir Lives"!
"Born Punk"!
"Plot of the Druid"!
"Billy Masters Was Right"!
"Urban Witch Story"!
"The Adventures of Black Hawk"!
"Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure"!
Even the new Leisure Suit Larrys (I rather enjoyed them despite being an asexual woman who fully excludes the possibility of personally having sex - no friggin' way!), while being way more commercial than most games on the list (heck, some of them are free, for example "Urban Witch Story", "Betrayed Alliance"...), are, in terms of gameplay, mostly a classic quest. I agree that most of these games are distinctly niche, mostly made for a not very big community of people who just prefer the retro style. But they exists and in fact, it amazes me how much the community is alive! Retro game development is a real community, developers all the time share information about oter games. If the forum feels dead, it seems to me that it's because traditional fora are no longer the dominant form of online communication. Unfortunately for me (for example, I have technically become a member of the Polish Psychedelic Society - but I got nothing out of it, because intragroup communication is Facebook-based...  :-\), I just feel a very strong push away from using social media - sure, I may read them (and this is how I know how alive is the retro gaming community), but I just can't force myself to create accounts because of my very strong need not to be in the majority.

OK, now the post I haven't had an opportunity to send and have to rewrite.

I wanted to congratulate too. I felt sad and sorry for you and now I'm relieved to know that you managed to get a transplant. I hope that, now that it is known, doctors will also be able to keep your autoimmune disease in check.
Rest well and don't overwork yourself immediately.

I also wanted to express hope that the horrible current American healthcare system won't last forever (and that USA stop being so cocksure and regarding itself as the absolutest pinnacle of democracy). The right to life and health are fundamental human rights, so a commercial-only healthcare system is always a violation of human rights. I have also recently read an article on the Polish web press (it was about the elections and the downfall of American system in general), in which the author, a moderate liberal, said something like: even people who consider a free market the best solution should be against the American healthcare system - because it only discredits free market ideas. It is much less efficient than European systems, but very efficient in creating problems unknown in Europe...
I just wonder: what arguments can people - let's say, Republican opponents of Obamacare - give in defense of such an unjust, anti-democratic, anti-life system. Because anyone who defends free market ideas when human life is at stake proves their absolute lack of basic decency. For all I care they can even print the money if that's what is needed to keep the system running, but free healthcare is a human right.

Anyway, back to games - I find it intriguing how you mention that you started working on "Quest for Infamy" after your previous transplant and should therefore start making "QfI2" now... I hope that the game is made indeed. The ending of "QfI1" was a bit of a suspense and the idea of a second part is very promising, also because the game world could be very different from that of Lonaria...

1. I hate my mouse. My finger made a single-click, my mouse made a double-click, and my post is gone because I closed two windows at once.  :'( :'( :'( Sorry, let me recover for a while. I hate so much to have to write everything a second time. (And glory to the Asexual Visibility and Education Network forum because it restores unsent posts; it just uses some different forum engine. This is a model for other fora.)
