Maniac Mansion DOTT fan art
GFX posted a topic in General DiscussionHey. While i was making some DVD covers for my old games, I had the urge to make a fan art of DOTT. So I painted this. Hope you guys like it. Instead of making a new thread i though posting this other piece here as well. A few weeks ago i painted some sort of "fan art" about a telltale's Sam & Max character, "the internet". I designed her following the small avatar icon seen in the game, and also thought to be cool to add the C.O.P.S. in there since I was going for a vintage George Petty theme about the girl holding a phone and "Bob" was perfect to fill that role . Hope you like it.
The Silver Lining Cease and Desist
mateo360 posted a topic in Off-Topic MayhemEarlier today (February 28th), Activision issued a Cease and Desist order against fan developer Phoenix Online Studios, who has been hard at work on The Silver Lining, an unofficial sequel to the venerable King's Quest series. Visitors to the game's website, located at http://www.tsl-game.com are now greeted with the following letter from the development team: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ To Our Fans: In 2005, Phoenix Online Studios received a Cease & Desist letter from Vivendi Universal, the owners of the King's Quest IP, in regards to our work on The Silver Lining. We complied with the request, and over the months that followed, we were able to work out a non-commercial fan license with Vivendi that allowed us to continue our work on the game. We have spent a lot of time recently reworking the material of The Silver Lining into episodic releases, with the first out of a planned five episodes completed, and submitted for review, and had hoped we would be able to bring our game to you, the fans, in the Spring of 2010. Recently, however, ownership of the Sierra IP changed hands and became the property of Activision. After talks and negotiations in the last few months between ourselves and Activision, they have reached the decision that they are not interested in granting a non-commercial license to The Silver Lining, and have asked that we cease production and take down all related materials on our website. As before, we must and will comply with this decision, as much as we may wish we could do otherwise. We cannot say enough how much we appreciate the support we have had over these years from our fans. Without you, we would never have gotten this far. There would be no game to develop, and no one to develop it for. You have been amazing and steadfast, and we will always remember that and appreciate it more than we can say. Sadly, after eight years of dedicated work and even more dedicated fans, The Silver Lining project is closing down. What the future holds for us, as individuals or a team, we cannot say. We have an amazing development team, however, filled with talented and hard-working individuals, and we hope the teamwork and rapport we have developed will not go to waste. We hope that when we do know what the future holds for us, our fans will be there to enjoy what we can give them still. Again, thank you all so much for everything. This has been a long and crazy road, full of more twists than we could have anticipated, but more triumphs and wonderful memories than we could have ever hoped for. And for that, to all of you and to everyone on our team, we will always be grateful. Thank You, The Silver Lining Development Team In compliance with Activision's request, most of our forums are coming down. However, we are keeping a few new, empty forums open so fans can stay in touch with one another and with us. Please visit: http://www.tsl-game.com/f...um/index.php?topic=8394.0 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ As many of you will recall, back in 2005, Phoenix Online Studios was issued a Cease and Desist by Vivendi Universal for the development of King's Quest IX. After a lengthy petition and review process, Vivendi Universal granted the developer a limited non-commercial license to develop their game, which was renamed "The Silver Lining". However, with Activision's recent acquisition of Viviendi Universal's properties, the fate of The Silver Lining came into question yet again. Today that fate appears to be sealed. The Cease and Desist issued by Activision calls for the immediate cease in production of the game as well as taking down all related materials from the game's website. At this time, the game website has been taken down and the bulk of the game's community forums has been taken down by the development team in an attempt to comply with the order (though efforts are being made to go through the forum in greater detail to comply with the order and put back into place any parts of the forum that do not directly pertain to the game). The Silver Lining began it's development in 2002 and despite many challenges and hurdles, was on track for a summer 2010 release. A petition is available online at http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/savetsl/ which is petitioning Activision Publishing, Inc. to retract the Cease and Desist order and allow The Silver Lining to finish development and be submitted to Activision for an impartial review to ensure standards in quality and content.
day of the tentacle 2
purpur posted a topic in Community Discussionhi there! i hope to be right here in this sub-forum. if not, i'm sorry, just put it off. and by the way: sorry for contingently mistakes, but i am from germany and still learning english at school. who of you still knows the old classic adventure game day of the tentacle? surely almost everyone. we, a crowd of crazy adventure-fans, are the ones, who revive bernard and his friends. since 2003 we're working on a worthy follower, which has the title "day of the tentacle 2 - return of the tentacles". it is an unofficial project for free, but the final result will be great and nostalgic. a lot of work is already done. on our website http://www.dott2.org, also with an english version, you can see some (older) screenshots, a two year old trailer and other stuff and information. in a few days a nice promotion-video will follow. just take a look, it would be nice to become more popular. as you also can see, we're permanently searching for new members, especially in the graphics area. there are also areas for the music, sound-effects, voices and dialogues, but i am not sure if there are needs. just ask! if there is someone of you, who is interested in drawing characters and backgrounds and/or making animations, just shout. however, the faster way would be an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. we are happy about each new helper, so you're welcome. we already have one english speaking member, so dont worry, everything's good. thats all. if there is nobody who wants to join us, i although would be pleased to receive some positive as well as negative comments. what do you think? tentacle-greetings from germany.
