  1. The last few years have come along with a number of video game publishers and studios closing like THQ and the messy situation surrounding 38 Studios. One of those companies that faded away was Sierra Entertainment. The company was responsible...

    The whole purpose of a teaser is to create a mystery. This is why it's called a teaser and not a preview. Though, the video in question is more of a whiff of a sample of a teaser. Personally, I would have liked five more seconds.

  6. It took me 5 years to finish police quest. After giving up I beat it pretty quick.

    No rush mate, take your time, another 15 years at this new one, so then you can look back and say - life was good... ;)

    It's not a teaser.. it's just a video logo..

    Remember when you watch a movie, and there's often a short 5 second shot that looks like maybe an action scene or a camera panning around some sort of object, only to then display the logo of the production company/publisher?

    It's that - but for Sierra. It's obvious as the logo is a mountain.. thus this guy going towards the mountain is just an extension of the logo.

    I'd have money on the game not having ANYTHING to do with a mountain or even snow.

    I agree, Jamesbrah. That mountain in the snow looks like half-dome in Yosemite in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. It might not be the actual mountain but it looks similar.

    Dunno about you but making a video like that shows... hmm nothing... except 1. it has snow, 2. it has a logo in it, 3. that "Teaser" if you could call it that shows nothing besides well snow....
  11. I liked Sierra games back when I were a lad. There was that game in the film Big, that they reminded me of.
    But I do believe that they had a mountain logo in SWAT.
    And confirmed by the wiki its just a logo...

    On August 7, 2014, the website for Sierra, which previously redirected to Activision's website, was updated, showcasing a new logo, teasing that "More to be revealed at Gamescom 2014."

    If you're going to spend some time making a teaser, make it look good! Have a peek at the stuff Blizzard puts out for nice looking teaser trailers.

    So many people complaining that the teaser is short and shows almost nothing. *facepalm

    Teaser shows the game will have snow & a mountain but thats it, if you call that a teaser then I must be bill gates.... its like posting a 0.3second clip of a cloud and calling it a teaser... shows nothing what so ever...

    Maybe with their possible resurgence, we'll get some sequels to games like Evil Genius, a game I always wanted more of.

    Hope they bring back Leisure Suit Larry! I'll take Space Quest if not..

    I've seen teasers that only show a letter/number or a symbol. how is this any different?

    Years ago Sierra published Homeworld 2 from Relic. This new teaser is reminiscent of the intro to their old Homeworld 2 trailer.

  20. Y king quest ?! Quest for glory was much better

    There are those of us out there who liked King's Quest. I, personally, will look forward to a new release in the series.

    Wow, seriously?

    why would anyone think it's a good idea to change the genre of a classic game like kings quest?

    they tried doing that with leisure suit larry with box office bust... and it literally got a 1 star out of 5 everywhere. total failure.

    Sierra already tried to do it with kings quest 8 as well. That one was also widely hated by adventure gamers.

    Listen, sierra games don't just attract the everyday adventure gamer. Fans of them are the oldschool hardcore adventure gamer purists that can't even stand how the new adventure gamer are too easy and how you can't die or anything in them. There's no way this game is going to do good with our crowd. You couldn't shoot yourself in the foot any worse than this.

    Why try to bring back kings quest only to spit in the face of every fan of the game out there?
    this is just awful. please don't even make this game if this is what you're going to do. You obviously have no idea what you're getting into.
