Dark Legends Parts from QB Portal

(9/2/2000) The main man behind has decided that now is the best time to move on.

Shortly after the QB Portal was taken down from, AlienQB left a message to the QB community.

Just one day after the 2000 QB Expo, a surprise announcement was made by webmaster AlienQB. The announcement, which regarded the status of QB game-developing team Dark Legends Software and their respective QB news site, The QB Portal, sent a message saying that the 2nd wave coding group has decided to move it's software development to the C language. A visit to the Dark Legends website, which now no longer carries the QB Portal, confirms the departure.

Reasons as to why Dark Legends decided to move on include the fact the coding group had become bored of the Basic language, and although they may continue to program in QB the focus of Dark Legends has moved to C to keep the programming experience fresh.

The decision for Dark Legends to leave the QB community at this time comes especially as a surprise since the coding group showed two projects, Combat Arena and Tales of Utopia, in the QB Expo. Whether these games will still be released (whether in QB or some other language) is unknown. However, according to QBasic/QuickBasic News, the QB Portal will be passed to Shadowcorps, who has appointed Scy as the new webmaster of the QB Portal.

Before Dark Legends, The QB Portal was once called AlienQB's QB Dungeon. It was in this state that we first saw AlienQB's presence in the QB community. And now that Dark Legends is moving on, their presence in the QB community will certainly be missed. Good luck, guys. Your year with all the die-hard QB gamers was prosperous, and we wish you nothing but the best in the rest of your programming endeavors.
