DragonQuest "retroclone"?

I guess quite a few of my readers have heard of DragonQuest. A certain blogger just these last few days posted about it, and I have gotten some interesting news about the game I decided to share. 

Just a few days ago James Sutton, managing director for RedBrick LLC announced to the DragonQuest community that he have have started to investigate the possibility to try to "retroclone" DragonQuest back into print. He have been in contact with Eric Goldberg, once the lead designer of the game, and he seemed to like the idea as well.

James post was a call for volunteers, and this heralds some interesting times for the game. I will be watching the developments with interest. Since WotC have shown their disinterest in the property by letting the trademark slide, this opens up possibilities.

  1. Will there be demon summoning or not?

    And are the 'word verification' words their names?

  2. James was not divulging any detailed plans. I guess he want to assemble a team to bring back the goodness. But, he seem to be an old fan who knows what was loved in DQ, and will probably work to preserve that.

    Trust me, I will post more if I hear anything interesting.
