I wonder if the end level/epilogue will relate to the opening scene of IV, like Emperor's Tomb's last scene to the opening scene of Temple of Doom?

Well, it's set for 1939. Maybe the game will end with Indy realizing the doors up to the attic of Caswell Hall are locked, so he has to climb a tree to whip through a window, and the image fades away as Indy says, "All right, Jones, how are you going to find the statue in all this junk?"

In all seriousness though...I might be willing to have it start right after that particular series of events, were it not to get in the way of a tumultuous Jones/Hapgood affair.

I read a looong time ago, that while the relics in the game and Indy4 are different, there is a small connection in the game and movie. Does anyone else remember seeing this info on LucasArts.com?

Also, the title Staff of Kings sounds more mysterious, "What could that be?... 'Staff of Kings'..." Staff of Moses is like "O.k. what ever. Its Indy looking for Moses's staff". In other words the thrill and adventure is lost.

Think about it...

INDIANA JONES and the STAFF of KINGS


This is a good point about the Indy naming convention and one that a lot of fan and official fiction don't seem to get in my opinion. Indiana Jones and the Sankara Stones, and Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail make pretty boring titles.

Yeah, my point exactly. They have to have an adventurous title.

This also makes me think of what the games cover will look like. I mean obveously its not just going to say in pencil: indy jons &... yeah...
but what will it be sort of like IM's cover or like ET's cover?

That was kinda my point. I remember that and that's why I said what I said in my last post. The game's in a small way a prologue or something. It supposed to tie into IV which is why it's being released when IV's released.

Lucas supplied this game's story, right? If it is the staff of Aaron, and Lucas had the idea years ago, maybe it would explain some of the heavy editing Max McCoy was forced to do on Secret fo the Sphinx. (In addition to the rumored time travel weirdness.)

Except he did find the staff of Aaron, and then it sprouted into an almond tree. Actually, I haven't read that interview in awhile; I only recall the time travel bit being what was objectionable.

Speaking of expanded universe encroaching on the toes of the bigger-profile stuff...

I was reading an old interview with Hal Barwood the other day (I'll be damned if I remember which site, but it was old magazine scans... I think from PC Gamer) and he was talking about Infernal Machine being his second idea. He said the original story he wanted to do was too close to something George wanted to do for a possible future Indy flick and so he had to scrap it...

...doesn't really tell us a damn thing of course... but it's interesting all the same...

Yeah, I remember reading that. Good Find, ResidentAlien. I wonder what his first idea was? Saucermen from Mars, lol.

Maybe McCoy and Barwood will be free to be (re)interviewed in a year by the Raven...

I found the exact quote-"Our game is going to be tied into the movie in the sense that we'll have locations, scenes and characters that foreshadow events in the movie. But the movie is going to be taking place chronologically in a later time frame. We're doing an Indy adventure in the classic Raiders timeframe of the late 30s. The Nazis are the bad guys, there's a race against evil to get something that has the potential to change the course of humankind".

Yep, that's the quote! Good find, San. I remembered that it was meant to be a form of foreshadowing or something along those lines... Time to speculate.

If it is the "Staff of Moses" now known as "Staff of Kings", guessing it's the same staff.... now what MacGuffins are related to that? Ark. Staff of Aaron. Anything else?

Another thing: Would Abner have researched into that too? I mean, it is connected to the Ark. So Marion could be in this game... wait a sec, I also remember a quote to do with familiar characters that could be appearing in this game. They never said who, but they said there would be characters from the films involved in the game's story! Hmmm...

4/15/08?

I was on Best Buy & I saw the pre-order for the next-gen it said 4/15. Is this for real or is it just some random date they have?

The title has never been Staff of Kings. First it was Indiana Jones 2007 and now it's Indiana Jones.

I thought the rumored title was Indiana Jones and the Staff of Moses.

As the Secret of the Sphinx book notes explain, the staffs of Moses and Aaron are often confused. CHUD still thinks it will be Staff of Moses. See the discussion here. Get ready for dozens of posts next year: "Stuck in SOK, help!"

Does anyone know how the Staff will factor into Indy's adventure-will it be the mcguffin, or will it lead the way to it like the Ra Headpiece in Raiders?

It's an actual artifact, as actual as artifacts of this sort can be, anyhow...it's likely the MacGuffin.

Just to be a pain "Staff of Kings" is a Lucasfilm Trademark NOT a Lucasarts one. Its probably a new novel in the wake of Indy 4 or a playset or something or Indy 5 I cant explain the software bit though!!

About the only thing they've filed this decade under Lucasarts is the Lucasarts name and logo... Video games and everything else are filed under Lucasfilm. Because Lucas loves celluloid film so much.

Mods, does theRaider want to break the SOK story?
