I backed this baby to the tune of $100. Loved the old Sierra games.

Sci-fi comedy adventure game fans! Attention!


Two Guys from Andromeda SpaceVenture (http://tgakick.com) is reaching a fever pitch over at Kickstarter! It's hit $275K with just under two weeks left, so it's a great time to jump in and pledge!

Want this son-of-an-Orat to come out for PC/Mac/Linux/iOS/Android?! Want to be a part of the design and development? You can have it if you pledge! Want a piece of collectible memorabilia? You can have if you pledge? Want to be in the goddamn game itself? Yep, you can have that too (but it costs an a**load of buckazoids).

Want to know more?

The team has brought fans unprecedented access... dudettes & dudes, I got to chat with both of the Two Guys, Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy, on a twitch tv feed, while another KS backer was playing their games live, Let's Play style. And by the way, Scott is still f***king funny!

To give us all a feeling of the game style, the Guys have created mini-game prototypes, a kind of living concept art that you can actually play and feel (as the guys say) what it's like to be "an idiot in space again!" which (any SQ fan will say) we really do miss.

Best of all... if SpaceVenture is successful, it the Two Guys will be in a really good position with Activision to prove to them that they're the right & only team to continue producing Space Quest games in the future! Activision has the SQ IP is in their hands, and is watching this closely (and yes, has given permission to use the Two Guys characters, and other incidentals like buckazoids, etc). So, if we want to play this awesome SpaceVenture they're going to build for us, and we want more Space Quest games in the future, then all we have to do is back this Kickstarter and bring that flavor of sci-fi parody back to life.

I personally, am just as excited with the new game idea as I am with bringing Roger Wilco back into space.

Here's a taste of Mark Crowe's design and art direction, also the scene of the latest prototype (sorry about the size!! there wasn't a smaller version of this graphic available for me to link to).

Just in case anyone doesn't know the Two guys have been doing commentaries (http://www.twitch.tv/andromedaguys)of each of the Space Quest games. They have so far done SQ1-3 and the SQ4 is on 9:00am PST / 12:00pm EST Monday 6/4/12.

The SQ3 commentary was especially great. Ken and Roberta Williams (Sierra Founder) stopped by and said hi which was a great moment.

There has also been a 4 hour "Superfan Hangout" (http://www.spacequest.net/index.php/topic/424-space-quest-superfan-hangout-1-the-highlights/) Scott Murphy joined in on that one.

The next stretch goal in another ~$5K is FIGS translation, of special interest to all of you German Linux adventure game fans!
