Graeme Devine on Quest

Fan site id Pro Quo has posted an audio recording of a workshop conducted by id Software's Graeme Devine from last year's QuakeCon 2000 on the topic of Quest, the online game project that had already by that time been cancelled. They've posted this now because there has been quite a bit of speculation that some aspects of Quest are being put into Nerve Software's upcoming unnamed mystery project "based on an original design by id Software" (story). If that really is the case, however, it represents a change in plan by contradicting the very reason Graeme is so forthcoming about Quest details in his talk, as in the very beginning he says: "Quest is not coming out... no one's gonna do it, so I can tell you all about it." The three and a half minute mp3-format recording indeed features details on the concept behind Quest and describes gameplay, and offers an explanation of how, contrary to popular belief, the online component would not qualify this as an MMORPG.

4. listen carefully... Sep 4, 2001, 03:15 shul
Quest is a brilliant idea - maybe some V12 licensee will take it on...
anyway, if you download "reverse play" at you can reverse the mp3 and listen to greame say "Carmack killed hoffa... Carmack killed hoffa... Carmack killed hoffa... "
shul.. conspiracy is everywhere

what is that he says about the new DooM? After he says its single player ONLY, does he say it has no coop?

Sounds like he says "it has no coop alkhdglja (something I cant understand)

The sound recording is quite difficult to understand due to the room echo but to break it down to the basics it would involve 5 players as different classes (magic, barbarian, etc) in a dugeon type situation and another player as a sort of Dungeon Master controlling all aspects of the environment (devine mentions Dungeon Keeper 2 as a comparison). Sounds similar to Neverwinter Nights. Im not a big Fantasy fan but this sounded cool , I hope someone gets around to doing it
