    Hmm. Interesting. Could be cool in they teamed up with TGFA. But that doesn't sound like a confirmation in that direction... just that they met.

    Well it could mean just a guest appearance on a kickstarter project :lol:


    I'm still not 100% sure it means what it reads. Haven't they said countless times they had no interest in making a new game?

    Hoping for the best.

    Well all that it says is that he met with them and that they're planning a Kickstarter. They might be trying to get funding for one of their other ideas like that School for Heroes website they had been working on. It doesn't actually say they're trying to fund another QfG. Still though, that'd be awesome. :)

    Hoping the game will be a nice middle-ground between RPG skill checks and adventuring. I felt as though QFG1 and QFG2 were the only games where training and improving statistics really made any appreciable difference (granted if you imported your character in the later games that was inevitable), and by QFG4 they had sort have gone full-adventure and dismissing the RPG mechanics as something of an inconvenience. Examples include finding virtually all the money you'll ever need in Erana's Garden, and being able to train strength by simply clicking on the exercise machine once a day. I could be in the minority on this though, or perhaps the combat systems in the earlier games (especially QFG2) made mindless grinding feel more exciting.

    Not to say I wanted the game to be a full RPG, of course. I loved the character progression and storytelling (awkwardly paced as it may have been) in equal measure, and it's a shame adventure games nowadays seem less inclined to do sequels because there's just something incredibly gratifying about encountering old characters again. What are other Codexians' stances on the series? Did you guys prefer one element of the series more than the other? Was Ad Avis canonically wearing his black turban at the end of QFG2 EGA or the red one from his later appearances?

    Hell yeah!

    TBH, I would've really preferred a demake of QfG 5 for the starters, to make it 2d (or pseudo 2d, but just like it was in the previous parts of series) and identical to 1-4 gameplay - I just can't bring myself to complete 5th part. But, well, another part will also be nice.

    Just as long as it's not a remake. Of QfG5. Still in 3D. For XBLA.

    So we got a fan spiritual successor to Quest for Glory and a new Quest for Glory itself. Gotta say...

    Yeah, it's real exciting that Lori and Cori are going to be doing another game! I do not know if it's going to be a Quest For Glory game, but Lori sent this letter to Elsa, who runs a forum called Quest For More Glory.

    Original Link: http://www.questformoreglory.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=3100

    So, awesome news, either way! I'm psyched!

    indeed

    it's good news they're doing a kickstarter for a new project, but I find it quite of troubling that it seems they have no idea on what they want to do and set the constraints on "other people, development houses, and game companies."
    But maybe that's just me being a pessimist

    hope for the best

    It might be kinda dickish on my part, but it irks me that having bought at least one copy of every QfG game from 1-5 and two copies of the Anthology somehow doesn't qualify me as a Super Fan person for the members-only website.

    What's the biggie?

    My understanding is that she refers to super-fans as the people who will be supporting their kickstarter project.

    She's probably just letting Elsa get into the loop sooner than the others.
