Traditional animation vs. 3D animation...

I am not that big of King's quest, but I have seen bits of pieces of the games. The only game of King's quest that I remember playing was the 7th one, and that one was the Princeless Bride. I'm not that big into the animation of that one(Since I dislike it when people mimic the Disney style) but my sister likes it and it reminds her of Don Bluth's style. I know the game is likely to be done in 3D but will there be certain parts of the game that will use 2D? Or even better, used for the cutscenes of the game? It would be sweet if that would happen.

    If telltale was able to make this as a 2D game, I'd home they'd aim for either the concept artwork of the game or Steve Purcell's style.
    The concept artwork of what game?

    King's quest of course.
  • I still have no idea what concept artwork you're referring to. Telltale hasn't released any concept art for their KQ game so I'd assume you're referring to one of the others.
  • Did king's quest even have concept artwork to begin with?

    Of course it did. Any visual medium, be it graphic novels, video or computer games, movies...they all have concept art.
  • Not necessarily with the very first games, though - that is, "to begin with" (like Leplaya said). In those days there were so few pixels to play around with that many game makers drew straight on the screen. Not sure if this was the case with early KQ, though.
  • I'm not sure about King's Quest, but Space Quest certainly didn't have any concept art. Scott Murphy talked at length about his "flying by the seat of your pants" design philosophy. He just made stuff up as he went along. And for SQ1 particularly, he and Mark put together some rooms in a space ship with a space character and showed it to Ken who then immediately approved the game. But they didn't even have a game at the time, just a few rooms. The space ship turned out to be the Arcada sequence at the beginning of SQ1.

    I doubt there was any real concept artwork going on at Sierra until the SCI0 (EGA w/mouse & sound card support) days.
  • They haven't confrimed its going to be 2D over 3D have they?
  • There's no way it's going to be 2D.
  • I'm not a big fan of the Telltale tool so I would really prefer to see something different. A 2D game would be beyond awesome but unfort. not gonna happen I think
