You gotta be kidding me, I finally downloaded the trailer yesterday and thought to myself "what a bloody shame".

Bee-yutiful! Yay for Vivendi!

No, you're mistaking them for "Electronic Arts".

Sierra and LucasArts are the Dead Gods (actually, LucasArts is more of a Fallen God).

Isn't that a bit like saying that all adventure gaming news should be posted in Chit Chat on the grounds that some people only check that board?

Well, yes, it's worth having information repeated to discuss here. Not many people check the indie forums as it doesn't seem relevent to them, and seeing all the stuff I've seen so far on this title I'd say it's far above average for an indie. Evidently they've impressed VUG to some degree.

I know I'm not the only one for a fact.

I just want to thank EVERYONE for their support of Phoenix Online through this difficult time for them! They have said over and over that they wouldn't have been able to make it through without you! Many of you may have signed the petition I had or sent the emails that myself, Matt and the rest of the SaveKQIX team were promoting. If you participated in that, please email VUG and thank them! Their email address is [email protected]. We want them to know that we do appreciate them allowing the continued development of the game!

If underground forums aren't "relevent" enough for some people, tough luck for them. Merging...

I should echo this sentiment, if only to state that I bear no grudge against the game itself. I genuinely am looking forward to playing it .

No, what Phoenix should have done in the first place was NOT thumb their noses in Vivendi's face by calling their project "King's Quest 9" and garnering as much prepublicity as they possible could.

As they were advised not to do. TWO YEARS ago. And to which they replied, "We couldn't possibly do that...it would hopelessly confuse our fans."

I'm glad the game's going to be released, though.

Merge it then. But you'll find mention a KQ game in the main forum it'll garner more interest. Your deal, not mine.

What about SQ7? It seems to be taking the same rout except its keeping a low profile.

then again, gathering all the publicity lead to the big following, and this was what ultimately saved the project. Otherwise, if we had kept the low profile, and not be known by a lot of people, we would still be shut down. Vivendi reacted directly to the press and the fans.

Having had a change of name before wouldn’t have changed things. We would have still gone through this. The Cease and Desist would have come whether our name was King’s Quest IX or not.

Personally, whether it’s called “King’s Quest IX” or “The Silver Lining”, I still fail to see your point. We are still making a sequel based on Roberta William’s work. And by the way, Roberta has seen more than what you think she’s seen. Her blessings have come not only once, but repeatedly over the years. Both from her and from Ken. You can ask them so you are clear of doubts.

Am I telling other fan-games to go through this? No. It’s risky, and the same way we were saved, we could have been shut down and left shut down. At the end, it’s up to the directors of each game what you guys want to do.

Anyhow, I just wanted to thank everyone for their incredible support. I’ve made the promise that this game will see the light of day, and I’m known for keeping my promises!

I believe (and hope) that they'll change the name. I've been asking them to do it for quite some time.
