Two Guys Are Back! SPACEVENTURE!

In Space No One Can Hear You Clean, er, Scream. But if you post in this forum about Space Quest - someone's sure to hear you. I think. Try it, anyway!

The villain would be Activision, of course.

Indeed -- I've got lots of editing to do...(though I doubt I'd be able to spin a new plot centered solely around the return of the classic adventure game designers, they will definitely not go unmentioned.)

Thank you!

It probably would be if this were a Sierra-centered series, but I try to make these games about all 2D 3rd person adventures (more or less), not just Sierra.

Oh my stars, I just saw this. Now I have to convince my wife to either go to bed early or watch a show by herself so I can catch up on all this awesomeness!

Just tell her you're really congested and that you might snore a lot. :P

Maia usually goes to bed before me because she needs more sleep than I do and she claims I snore. Such character assassination... ;)

My message I posted on FB:

I have officially backed up SpaceVenture. :-) Why haven't you? Yeah! You! Not the person behind you! YOU! Yes! You! No, stop looking around. I am talking to you. So get over there and donate at: http://tgakick.com/ - then post it around! That's right! Share it! I don't care if you're a single child and not used to sharing! If you weren't used to sharing you wouldn't be on Facebook!

So, I just happened to catch the final roughly ten minutes of the online chat tonight with the Two Guys.. It's beginning to bring up all sorts of questions that I probably at one time knew the answer to but have no idea anymore so I ask again.. Does anyone know..

- how similar will the new SpaceVenture "look and feel" to the original SQ series?
- will they be able to use likenesses of Roger Wilco or any other character/prop/screen/etc from the SQ series?
- or, with all that said, is SpaceVenture intended to be still a fun sci-fi parody adventure game, but written as a completely and wholly new storyline with an entirely separate universe from the original SQ saga?

I know that "Sierra" and "Space Quest" themselves as NAMES aren't available, nor would it probably matter too much if they were. But in terms of infringement on SpaceQuest game ideas, characters, graphics, etc., .. .. what is their general idea in this case?

Now that I say all this, I could probably cut-and-paste this in their "Contact us" page. :)

Well ye may wanna get the word out - they're not even at 50% and they have 15 days. I fear for the worse. :(

50%! It's all downhill from here! Exactly halfway through the Kickstarter, too!

I really, really, really x1000000+infinity hope this gets funded! I just want it to be funded and done - so I know it's going to happen.

I apologize if this has already been posted on SpaceQuest.net (I don't frequent that website), but here's a fascinating article on the Two Guys from Andromeda: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/171021/the_20year_estrangement_of_the_.php
You like manuals. You like manuals. You love them. You cannot resist manuals.
