Doesn't matter if it has or not. Not everyone here goes to the Janitorial Times. Feel free to post anything Sierra related here.

Some fans got together and in 3 days put together a little one-room adventure game called Pledge Quest to raise awareness and promote funding 2GFA's SpaceVenture. It's a fun little game made out of love and a desire to see SpaceVenture succeed on Kickstarter! Play it! Have some fun! Credits music by yours truly as well. :)

$33,168 left now!

The Gary Owens interview was fantastic, by the way. Great stuff. He's a very nice guy. Had some cool stories to share.

Some fan is giving away very rare Sierra games for people who pledge $30 or more!

Finally pledged today.. Not trying to wait until the last minute, just happened that way. A lot of work and home life going on right now.. Been wanting to pledge for a few weeks now, since the first day I even learned of this kickstart campaign (and KS in general). So glad to officially be on-board now!

The pledge rate was really going up there for a few days, then things seemed to have backed off in these last hours? I hope they make it past 500k. Would be a real shame to get to 96-99% and not make it. :( Maybe it's just because yesterday was a Sunday?

Actually, yesterday raised the third most pledges of all the other days. Probably because of the Gary Owens interview.

Two new tier levels!

Wow, did someone make a massive last-minute pledge, or did TONS of people just sign-up over their lunch breaks? This morning we were around 480k, then around lunch we were around 487k.. now we're at 505k??

But-- yay!!

So with the kickstarters soon to be blooming and being released, I figured I'd kick off some threads for each "Sierra related" Kickstarter (or at least the ones I am aware of and funded).

We couldn't officially get another "SpaceQuest" game, but those Two Guys From Andromeda, as always, have found a sneaky way around it - but creating another game, about - not a janitor - but a plumber type mechanic - in space! What are you most excited about? And did you fund the Kickstarter? What was it that made you want to fund it for as much as you did?
