New logo looks great so far! Will be interesting to see what kind of games they will develop and publish under that brand name...

Some speculation that this is why they took back the KQ license from Telltale.

Wow. Well, Roberta Williams has sailed all seven seas in the last years, so she should have picked up enough tales along the way for inspiration, right? She would be perfect to take back the helm of the KQ franchise! Go Roberta go! :D

Interesting.  I'd think that this should generate some more traffic here.
