Let’s Welcome our New Member!

Good news everyone,

 

After some internal team members talk we decided (Everyone!) to add a new member to our Team.

 

We are welcoming Isaac from the land of Kolyma!

Isaac is a regular user of our site and has offered his help so many times.

Isaac isn’t an animator, a graphic designer or a musician so as he saw we are in search of an animator and suchm he just took the initiative and contacted many people in order to find the right talent for the team.

 

Isaac, your help to the team is greatly valued – Welcome.

I am happy to introduce Ellivia – our new Script writer

Hi all,

 

I have good news,

Ellivia has joined our team as our new Script writer.

What is a script writer?

Well, you will notice her work in every step of the game as she writes all of the scripts in the game, for example, when you click on the hand icon then click on a tree – you will get a response, and while you may get a plain response like “Can’t do that”, a good script writer will make it much more fun and may write a witty response, a clue about the real click one should try or anything else.

 

Here is her first work – enjoy:

Path to Lolotte’s castle

Castle

Touch: You are too far away

Speak: Castles don’t talk

Path

Touch: You bend down to feel the rough path. A few rocks break loose and fall to the chasm below. You better watch your step.

Speak: You get no response.

Trees

Touch: You don’t need to touch the trees. Besides, they’re too far away.

Speak: Your voice echoes all around you. You get no response

Rosella: I’m alone

Person Icon: When you walk to the edge of the path, your foot slips under the unstable rock.

Rosella:Uh Oh

Unable to regain your balance, you slip off the path and fall to your death.

BAM!

Look: The forest of green trees below you remind you fondly of Daventry.

Sky

Touch: You raise your hands up to the sky. A warm breeze passes through your fingers

Speak: The birds in the sky chirp back energetically

Look: The sky is a beautiful shade of light blue. The weather is perfect.

We have a dedicated Sound FX guy!

How cool is that!

 

I am extremely pleased to introduce DeuStorm which chose to join our quest as our Sound FX guy.

 

yep, no more throwing soundfx in a whim, they will be especially created by our new team member.

 

So, who is he?

I am posting several paragraphs he wrote about himself, here they are:

I’m a fan of Sierra games and participation in the remake of King’s Quest IV is for me an old dream.

Since young age, I’ve been inspired from the music compositions of the series, and I have composed several music creations based on the original partitions of KQ4, made with my own instrumentals.

I’ve made some personal creations too, I have brought them nearly to studio closure, but I never wanted to finish them, I prefer sharing them with friends or for fan remake creations like here, maybe in the future I’ll have the time and passion to finalize them.
Because the team already has a talented music composer, the team proposed me to create the sound fx, it is for me a first try (in fact, not exactly), but it is such a funny task and it gives me the possibility to express myself in a new way.

The other things I’ve done are forums, like MythOfDeus which was the most popular creation of mine (entirely personal creation, I learned to use photoshop at that time), and a lot of php/javascript/html coding.

Coding is also a talent I love, starting when I was 9-10 years old on a Sainclair ZX Spectrum, making some games or applications in basic, it gave me the possibility to create some sound applications when I got my first sound card with my PC Tandy. On it, I’ve programmed a panel where when pressing a key, it makes a single note, and in fact, maybe I can say it was sound fx because some parts was creating instruments or noises like wind or other things to feed the program.

I loved that, and I created the first music tracker (none existed at that time, but some people got the same idea), it got a lot of downloads later on I decided to use trackers that were developped by others dedicating my energy to other projects.

I want to welcome a new member which chose to join our quest

Hi everybody,

 

Today, I have very good news, today I want to welcome our first dedicated forum moderator, till now I & our graphic designer moderated our forums, but that can’t continue, we need to focus on developing the game (and the demo which was already released to our beta testers! – but more on that on a different post), so please welcome Jack Stryker, our new Forum moderator!

 

Who is Jack Stryker?

Here is some of what he wrote about himself:

My real name is Danny. Jack Stryker is the alias I use on the internet (that or JStryker47) and the name of a character I created for a friend’s fanfiction. I was born on October 22nd, 1983. I live in a small town called Brea, in Southern California. I’m the youngest of 6, if you can believe that. 4 brothers and 1 sister.

I was introduced to the King’s Quest series, among several other Sierra franchises, by my brothers. They would often bring home new PC games, that they either bought at a store or borrowed from a friend, and I would watch them play those games. KQIV was, of course, one of those games. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see them play through much of that one, so when I was finally old enough to have my own computer and play the games myself, I had a bit of trouble getting through KQIV for the first time. Often, I found myself asking, “How do I get across that big hole in the ground?” “How do I get out of this whale?” “Where IS Pandora’s box anyway?” But despite that, I managed to have a good time playing it.

Years later, after having played the AGD remakes of the first 3 KQ games, I was disappointed to find that they wouldn’t be making one of KQIV. Particularly since another group that was working on one seemed to abandon it. So when I stumbled across this KQIV remake project and saw the amazing screenshots, you know I couldn’t let this one die. You might say that over the years, I’ve become a bit like Joss Whedon; since I like strong independent female characters, who can get the job done and aren’t just damsels in distress. So why wouldn’t I want to see a game starring that type of character, using the kind of awesome graphics that Unicorn Tales have shown?

Here is my DeviantArt page; where I’ve posted photos, fanfictions, and renders that I’ve made using a program called DAZ Studio:

And this is my YouTube page, currently with only 2 videos since I mainly just signed up there to comment on other videos:

Welcome JackStryker and thanks for your contribution to the quest.,

Rosella.
