spindown: To me, adventure games are all about the satisfaction of solving puzzles and slowly progressing through the story as you do so. Watching a playthrough of an adventure game spoils everything that makes them worth playing in my opinion.
While I wouldn't start by watching a playthrough, I disagree about the rest. I've completed several adventure games time and time again even though by that time I knew the solutions to all the puzzles. Good adventure games are not just about puzzles, but about the story. If the story is good, and especially if the humor is too, it's worth playing through more than once. I don't remember how many times I've played these games, but it's a lot: Loom, Monkey Island 1+2, Day of the Tentacle, Beneath a Steel Sky, Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken, and probably several others that I don't recall at the moment.

I never actually played Grim Fandango. I tried it briefly once on a friend's computer, but I must admit that the shift in controls from the previous LucasArts adventure games threw me off.

SirPrimalform: And especially not Grim Fandango! It really doesn't need a sequel.

Neobr10: Why? Telltale is the only AAA studio that knows how to make good adventure games. Walking Dead, their last game, won the most GOTY awards last year.
That is irrelevant. Not every game or movie needs a sequel, regardless of who were to make it.

Good. I love those guys and wish them all the best.

(and of course I want NOLF and NOLF2 too :P and Contract J.A.C.K. as a dessert)

I'll give this a small bump and leave it at that unless any good new info appears.
I want Homeworld here on GOG so much...
Might wanna add System Shock to the list of things they're working on.

Jay Gibbs, I presume? ;) Will do that now.

EDIT: Just saw this March 6 post: https://www.facebook.com/NightDiveStudios/posts/219072188234876

"We've been getting a lot of requests to bring back more beloved game franchises and so far the most requested titles are:

1. Homeworld
2. No One Lives Forever
3. Grim Fandango
4. System Shock 1

What's missing?"

I caught their post on Facebook before I went to work. I never really got to play NOLF at all, so this series being revived would mean an instabuy for me as well.

Fuzzyfireball:
Double yes.

Who got the Homeworld rights? Not the guy that did Baldur's Gate Enhanced I hope.
So with the recent THQ auctions ending yesterday anyone got any news about who might have gotten or was interested in getting Homeworld? I'm fairly certain Night Dive made a serious bid to get it as I think if they weren't in the final running they would have come out and said it like Trent Oster did on his twitter.

Maybe its also possible that to secure as much extra funds as possible, they coupled some efforts with these guys to make one big time attempt to get the IP.

Will be interesting to see the new developments when we find out who won the auction.

I'm not necessarily against them working with teamPixel for a Homeworld Touch /H3, but reasonably cautious (especially since the third title in the series always seems like death is coming quickly).

Basically, if Night Dive can get Homeworld and Homeworld 2 (compatible of course) onto GOG with the soundtracks (minus licensed music of course) and other nice collector's edition material, then I'm more or less good.

jackalKnight: If Telltale doesn't get it, no one will. The amount of modern successful publishers of adventure games is pretty much restricted to them.
Nope. Daedalic is quite successful too and they make IMO the better adventures. So if someone remakes Grim Fandango please let it be Daedalic!
Not really, Daedalic's games are mechanically sound in terms of puzzles and gameplay, but the writing is mediocre and often cringe-worthily bad, especially in Deponia. Not sure if they just lack good writers or it's a problem with the translation from German though

For me, Deponia or Harvey's New Eyes are like 100 times better than Back to the future or Jurassic Park bullcrap. And I see nothing wrong with the writing.
