Calling all 2D Adventure game fans!
I'm sure many of you remember the classic Sierra Space Quest games starring the hapless space janitor Roger Wilco. In all 6 Space Quest games were released from about 1988-1994.
Well the creators of Space Quest: Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe (aka the Two Guys From Andromeda) have reunited after an almost 20 year hiatus to make a new game in the sci-fi/comedy/adventure game genre, and they need our help!
It's provisionally titled "SpaceVenture" and will be a separate game from the Space Quest series (due to the SQ IP not being owned by them).
They've started a Kickstarter page for funding the game and so far are about 2/3 to their goal of $500,000 with 7 days left to go.
They've got some impressive voice talent on board already including Ellen McLain (GLaDOS from Portal), Gary Owens (narrator from SQIV and SQ6) and Rob Paulsen (Pinky from Pinky and the Brain).
There's a raft of reward tiers and the rewards themselves include DRM free copies of the game (Steam, direct Download, iOS & Android versions will be available), a Buckazoid coin, coupon's for copies of the original SQ games from gog.com, signed artwork, a boxed copy of the game and a behind the scenes DVD among many others.
