“… (by Barry) …it’s just that I have a strong (and obviously unpopular) opinion when it comes to fanmade games. …”
No worries, man. I’m pretty cynical when it comes to fan-made content/games as well. When someone thinks they can just pick up wherever the original developers left off, I cringe. I do; and it’s not meant as a negative comment… I’m just being truthful. When you’re a fan of the original content… you become a fan of the people who developed the content as well (and sometimes, even more so). Fans can be very protective of what and who they admire. I think that’s why you, Barry, are so critical about fan-made games… or you might just be like me and love arguing for argument’s sake. 😉
To be honest, I agree with some of Barry’s comments about fan-made games, but… I also realize that most fan-made games are simply tributes to the originators. Everybody should be allowed to worship his or her heroes… even in the form of a game. I honestly couldn’t see myself making a game based on someone else’s work, but I constantly use other people’s work for inspiration. That said, I’ll probably still give KQIX a try when it comes out… not because it’s based on the King’s Quest games, but because it looks like it has merit on its own.
I wish the KQIX team the best of luck.

Well said, César.
