Forgive me if this is being posted in the wrong section, I just wanted to spread the good word that The Two Guys from Andromeda (AKA Mark Crowe & Scott Murphy), creators will soon be KICKSTARTING development on their newest SPACEVENTURE! 😁 The recent Leisure Suit Larry Kickstarter campaign was an amazing success, and I know this one can, and will be just as much! Fans of Sierra On-Line and Adventure Games rejoice...the era of rebirth has begun! 😁

I will post the kickstarter link when it's up and running!

I figured the return of the Two Guys had been previously mentioned, but I have been recruited to spread the word, and confirm the Kickstarter for the project, so just launching a few "pre-emptive strikes" in hopes to field early interest from fellow (hopefully!) backers, but I also figured I'd mention the actual regrouping on the extreme off chance it wasn't actually mentioned here. 😜

Just doing my part is all! I have faith this campaign will be just as successful as the one for Larry, which I'm happy to announce I contributed to as well. It's time we fans ASSEMBLE once again and Kickstart the return of the Two Guys! 😁 As I mentioned earlier, I will post the link to the Kickstarter page to this thread.

EDIT: Feel free to merge the two threads if you wish, I'm all for making things orderly and less procestuous!

That's awesome! I miss those old AGI games. I still have my Space Quest collection, and SQII original floppies!

As long as Wasteland 2 makes it. (Only one I've funded so far....waiting to see how that turns out before I fund anything else).

Almost all games on Kickstarter have a large surge at the end. Both this one and Tex will most likely make it. Tex even more so with 69% pledged and 3 more days to go than SpaceVenture.

There's a chat/commentary by the Two Guys tonight at 6:30pm PST / 9:30pm EST. They'll be talking about the creation of the classic Space Quest 1. Should be well worth the listen for adventure game fans.

This is the first KS that has me a tad worried that it will not make it. KickTraq reports it coming short (Traq is hardly accurate). Here is hoping for a late surge!

Indeed, I'm worried too, but only because I really really want it to succeed, it's still possible with a really strong ending surge. So.. let's stay hopeful and keep spreading the work about http://www.tgakick.com

SpaceVenture has only 5 days left and is just over 70% funded. We need more! If you can find it in your heart (and in your wallet) to give a little more, please consider it!

Tex Murphy just reached their goal. Though I have to wonder. Space Venture has 2000 more backers than Tex Murphy, but are 100k behind. What is the reason the average pledge is so much higher on Tex? Are the fans so much more dedicated on Tex?

Not sure about this versus Tex, but I think in general people are going to start losing interest in funding kickstarter games until some of the bigger ones actually ship.

I'd really like to back this one, but I'm already waiting on the pledges I've made towards FTL, Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun to come through in order to give me some assurance that it was worth it.
