Well, I won't quarrel that thought (though I'm absolutely certain such a shrewd parody is light years from Alliance's mind). However, I hope you're aware that Sierra never just updated games out of sheer boredom. They only updated the first editions of each of the flagship series' to VGA graphics (Police Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, King's Quest--technically only an EGA update, Space Quest, Quest for Glory). One of their producers once told me that they had a plan to update every EGA adventure to VGA had fan interest been higher, but even during the Golden Age people didn't really care to spend that much money on remakes.

Who's dishing out lewd misinformation now?

You must have some powerful tools to get such insight about Alliance from the four posts he has made here.

I certainly do. In fact, you'd be amazed at how much I now know about you from just that one post.

Again, I'm just trying to say that I think it's a waste of talent, which Alliance obviously has. I just wish he'd make something original. I'll simply thoroughly ignore this game and hope for that to eventually happen.
Well, you're free to think what you want, but I'm making the damn thing already. I mean, it's just a game. And it is every bit a parody of a parody, a fangame of a fangame. Some people just aren't used to that idea because it's so weird. But ohwell. That happens. Think what you people want, I'm not giving up.
Besides, once I finish the damn thing, I'll become sort of popular, and then I'll make something original (I've got a guy on my team who's making a space game right now)
So just wait. If you don't like it, play something else.

TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!
Trogdor was a man
I mean, he was a dragon man
Er, maybe he was just a dragon
But he was still TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!

Burninating the countryside
Burninating the peasants
Burninating all the peoples
In their thatched roof COTTAGES!
THATCHED ROOF COTTAGES!

{guitar solo starts up}

{spoken}
Whoa! Listen to those wicked dueling guitar solos! It's like squeedly vs. meedly over here. Go squeedly! Go squeedly! SQUEEDLY WINS!

When all the land is in ruin
And burnination has forsaken the countryside
Only one guy will remain
My money's on

{singing}
TROGDOR!
TROGDOR!

{spoken}
And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIIGHT!

/\The full thing/\
