    Actually, he didn't. The male vocals on GIIT were performed by Bob Bergthold.

    Just had a look through this thread for the first time, initially I was thinking I would prefer Kings Quest 5 style graphics (obviously much higher res, and more animation etc) over anything else but then I saw the pictures posted by Radogol and damn :eek:
    Those are really nice! I wouldn't mind them doing the game with graphics like those :D
    They actually somewhat remind me of the art direction used in some of the Settlers games.

    I played a casual game called Crystal Fairytale of Cinderella and I thought the backgrounds and character models were well done. Here are a few screenshots.

    And here's a video of the introduction with storybook graphics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2QAqzHyfiI&feature=related

    If anyone is interested, there's a free demo available here. http://www.pcgamestore.com/games/cinderella-the-crystal-fairytale

    Has anyone heard of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3DS. It comes out on June 19 in the US and June 17 in Europe. The graphics have been redone and they look great. I found a few screenshots of backgrounds that would look great in a King's Quest game.

    I've known about it since E3 of last year.

    Yeah I think I've heard something about that Ocarina 3D thingamawhatsit.

    Has anyone seen this trailer for the movie Brave from Pixar that's coming out Summer 2012? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYg0VgPy6Uk

    I think something like this could work in a King's Quest game. What do you think?

    As long as we're on the subject of Zelda, I'd love it if this game looked like Skyward Sword.

    That would be neat. I'm looking forward to that game. What would you think if the new King's Quest looked like a Studio Ghibli movie? There's a game called Ninokuni that they worked on with Level-5, the creators of Professor Layton. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUYVdRxgED8

    There's a movie coming out next year called Dorothy of Oz which is based on the book by the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum, Roger S. Baum. Here are a few pictures.

    And I instantly think of the Glassmakers' Guild in Loom.

    And I just think of seeing the movie when it comes out and how neat a King's Quest game would be with graphics like that.

    TRINE 2!!!!!
    That's it. I want it this way.
    Sharp. Romantic. Evocative. Detailed.

    Look at this HD movie : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMwUzM773lw&feature=related !!!!! (interesting part begins at 1:05)

    KQ can't be less than this.
  • edited December 2011
    I agree that Trine 2's graphics style would be PERFECT for KQ, but there is no way in hell Telltale will hit that level of detail and polish. It'd be a great goal for them to shoot for though.
  • edited December 2011
    Yeah, Trine 2 is really beautiful looking!

    I read that Frozenbyte has a staff of about 20 people... how they pulled off a game that looks like Trine 2 is mind boggling..
  • edited December 2011
    Isn't mostly a 2-D game? Side scroller? I don't see how they would need that many artists?

    I think the lighting really makes up for about 85% of the effect.

    Probably. It does look very nice, though.

    I don't know... I think it has way too much 'bloom', people tend to go overboard with 'bloom' and 'lens flare'... See Star Trek reboot...

    I don't want to see Graham (or whomever) glowing like a radioactive mutant...

    KQ needs to be tastefully subdued...
