This video was thrown together by Roberta and I quickly, as an example for our marketing group of how to showcase our new 2.0 release. I'm terrible at video editing, so the video turned out poorly, but the 2.0 release has turned out awesome. It represents a huge effort and shows Roberta's and my commitment to making this game as good as it can possibly be. I hope you will enjoy the video!

This was a fascinating read getting caught up on this project and all the various things that happened along the way. I really do like the concept of taking an old text adventure game, and re-creating it fully in 3D, and keeping all the text adventure type system elements (Look, Use etc....). It seems they did fully and faithfully translate that and now getting a much badly needed 2.0 version, and now the game at a more realistic price point.

This does at least seem a bit interesting to me. The rather mobile game art direction is a but off putting though. I might actually try this some day, with 0 expectations, just to see what I think...

Have you ever wanted to fly? Well jump aboard our flying machine for an underground tour of the Colossal Cave. It's a journey you won't forget!

This is a 360 degree immersive video. For the full experience you'll want to watch while wearing a VR headset.

Playing this right now after picking it up on sale and I'm liking it. It really is just the old text game adapted into first-person graphical form. The puzzles are coming back to me ("Oh yeah, don't drop the vase unless you have the pillow..."). In some ways, it feels like the most King's Quest thing Roberta has done since like KQ2 at least. Just drop you in a world and let you explore, solve puzzles, and accumulate treasures, with a bit of whimsical charm.
