Designing Conquest of ________.

Feel like your conquest has you questing in circles? This is for the Cristy Marx games, Conquests of Camelot: The Search for the Grail and Conquests of the Longbow: The Legend of Robin Hood. You can ask for help with these games here! (Beware of the rabbit... it's got fangs!)

Designing Conquest of ________.

Post by Tawmis » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:50 pm

This one would be kind of fun - because neither game ties in with the other. So this one would probably be about another legend or lore or story.


The idea came to me to post some threads about other Sierra games, when I was just digging through my email and found an ancient story I had written where the next King's Quest game would be Edgar (from King's Quest IV) seeking out Rosella to try and win her hand in marriage. It was, in my head, a cool idea because Edgar would technically be a king (with his mother - spoilers! - now dead).

So, I thought - given the chance, if you were brought in to help, or pitch ideas, or help direct (so let's avoid answers like, "I'd call in Jane Jensen/Al Lowe/Roberta Willians/Scott Murphy/Lori & Corey Cole/Mark Crowe/Christy Marx/etc" - and assume they're there too :lol: ) - to work on the next game.

So in this case - if you were a part of the creative team, what would you hope for in the next CONQUEST OF ______________?

Maybe some Greek myth. Like a remake of Ulysses and the Golden Fleece? Or Clash of the Titans with everything from Greek gods to Krakens to Medusa...Jason and the Argonauts...something like that.

Or maybe a Sinbad tale or something.

You could do a whole series centered around Greece. But I like the idea of going with Sinbad.

I didn't know the name of Sinbad's ship before, but looking it up provides a good title: "Conquests of the Chimera".

Sounds like imitating Clash of the Titans.
