I'm still working on the website guys, its almost done. :)

System Requirements are hard to gauge until we get it out and have you guys beta test it. It runs great on my system but not to brag mine is pretty high up there in specs. It wont be near as high in specs as GTA4 for the pc though.

I'm still working on the script guys, bear with me. I can tell you this much. The first 20 missions take place in between actual episodes. Like the first mission you rush Michael to the hospital from the airport after he has stopped Tonya Walker. On your way renegade Com-Tron trucks will try and stop you but you get to test out some of KITT's functions. Once you get Michael to the hospital Devon calls in with a new mission for you to take care of (as KITT) out in the desert. While Tonya got away, she did have a back up of the designs as a fail safe. So you have to track down the other renegade com-tron trucks and Micro jam the brakes so the proper authorities can pick them up.

And that is basically your KITT training mission. For Michael you get to do a series of rehabilitation exercises (After all he was shot in the arm) at the FLAG mansion, and learn how to maneuver around the game world as Michael. The next mission is the 3rd and final level of training, where you are just leaving White Rock and heading to Slamming Sammy's. Having defeated the first motorcycle gang you, are viciously attacked by the second Motorcycle gang that you thought took off in the original series. You have to out smart them as both Michael and KITT and demobilize them and rescue the hostage (Davey Benson once again).

The next 17 missions take place between seasons 1-4, which lead into and set up my original story for a "what if....?" season 5. So in the first 20 missions you get to replay a lot of famous episodes, and the last 20 missions you get to be subject to my own fan fiction, which in course includes a diabolical plot of Garthe Knight and a lot of returning villains including the Drones and the Juggernaut.

Once you beat the game you can of course replay the game as Mike and KI3T.

While that looks like it would be an awesome opportunity for them, since they don't have permission to use KR, they wouldn't be able to since it says that if they won, the game would be published. Maybe if they had an original idea they were working on as well. :)

i see what you mean... but the entire game was done by them. some ideas were by them, too. but i see where the copywrite *?$# would be a problem.

Yes thank you for the suggestion. I have on original game that will not be going this year but later the following year to the indie games festival. This is a completely different crew of programmers and artist though.

I don't want to run off topic lol, but its due for release the first quarter of 2010. Originally we were aiming for August of this year but the Lead Artist decided he wanted to go back and make all the car models much more detailed. The business model we have for it will hopefully be a rewarding one, and will help fund most if not all of the Knight Rider game. Its a massive multiplayer online RPG but with cars. We do not intend to charge players to play. No monthly service fee's. Just straight up download it and play it. Our revenue will come from allowing advertisers to purchase billboard space, radio commercials, and product placing. While we had to change the names of the cars due to lack of licensing (The cars do look very similar to there real world counterpart but for legal reasons they are not badged or have the real world name), we do have legal permission from a few parts manufactures to have licensed car parts in the game from Holley, Flow master, and an array of other part manufactures were very happy to join on for the free advertising. We have an interview coming up in Hot Rod magazine. I will post it on the motor world website when its published.

Is there a new site for the game? Every link I try says 'page not found' or something similar to that. I would love to know more about this.
