One thing that could account for the difference is that the Tex developers have been actively making games the past few years, have been at least somewhat active in the Tex fan community during that time, and have designed the bulk of the new Tex game already (from what I understand). Their initial pitch on Kickstarter also looked like they had put a lot more effort into it than the Two Guys.

I read the page but the impression I am getting is that it's just not serious enough IMO. If it's true that they haven't seen each other for 20 years, how much of a "dream" can it really be?

Maybe I have always misunderstood the space quest games. For me it was all about the Sci-Fi and the puzzles and not about the humour. A game like SQ1 or SQ2 with similar graphics is what I would want but it doesn't look like that's what they are doing.

Hi there, I just wanted to give everyone an update on the SpaceVenture Kickstarter by the Creators of Space Quest:

We are currently hovering at 420k and need 80k to seal the deal but there is only 71 hours left so if ever any of you guys and gals were on the fence about Joining the cause for Andromeda, now would be the time!

Tons of awesome stuff even in the 30 dollar tier but the real meat is about 125 *Buckazoids come to mind* Of course, ANY amount at all that you pledge will mean the world to us. We love our $15 backers to pieces , after all!

Go here http://tgakick.com and peruse the rewards and I think you'll like what you see!

Be a part of bringing this classic game developing duo from the Gold age of SIERRA back to the forefront to join their pals!

Thanks a lot and hopefully we'll see you on the comments page!

Viva La SpaceVenture!

They've provided living concept art to play, looks at the main character and his sidekicks.

48 hours to go. 53K to reach it. Let's make SpaceVenture happen

To answer your question:

TGAKICK.COM --> http://kck.st/JdMvCc

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spacevent … space-que/posts -

It's a Proof of concept demo created by some very talented HTML5 guys and creatively influenced by Scott and Mark themsleves that you can play to get a feel for what's in store. Basically When you play this just think about how much more AMAZING it will be once the Two guys actually start slaving away on the real deal

*after You, me and the rest SEAL This Kickstarter's DEAL!*

NOTE: *Try really hard to catch ALL the eggs! Failure is not an option 😁

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

So retro EGA graphics are more expensive than "Pixar-quality 3D characters and animation" these days? Guess I should really put up a portfolio of my oldschool pixel art and get filthy rich. 😜

Hey, remember this? What a mess this project turned out to be.

But did you know they actually got a demo out a few months ago?
