Space Quest fans release retro sequel to support Guys from Andromeda project

Decaffeinated Jedi Decaffeinated Jedi writes  |  about 2 years ago

Decaffeinated Jedi writes "For the past several months, the Two Guys from Andromeda (creators of Sierra's classic Space Quest series) have been working on their upcoming SpaceVenture game. Now, two fans have released a retro point-and-click adventure to help spread the word about the Two Guys' new project. The fan game is titled Pledge Quest II: Noodle Shop of Horrors, and it serves as a sequel to a one-room adventure released by the same team during the SpaceVenture Kickstarter earlier this year. In Pledge Quest II, players uncover a foul conspiracy that threatens the very future of the SpaceVenture project and soon find themselves traveling through time and space to save the Two Guys' new game from certain doom. Along the way, Pledge Quest II offers up a low-res onslaught of references to classic adventure games and science fiction franchises alike."

Space Quest fans create retro adventure game to support new SpaceVenture

Decaffeinated Jedi Decaffeinated Jedi writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Decaffeinated Jedi writes "A team of fans has released a short retro point-and-click adventure game titled "Pledge Quest I: The SpaceVenture Adventure" to rally support for the new Kickstarter from Space Quest creators, the Two Guys from Andromeda. The game features its protagonist, Bea (named for Roger Wilco's love interest in the Space Quest series), completing a series of puzzles that culminate in her logging on to her computer and making a pledge in support of the upcoming sci-fi/comedy SpaceVenture game from the Two Guys. The "Pledge Quest" game was conceptualized and developed by fans in just a few short days, in hope that it would rally support for the Two Guys' SpaceVenture (which reaches its deadline on June 12)."

Decaffeinated Jedi Decaffeinated Jedi writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Decaffeinated Jedi writes "The Two Guys from Andromeda, creators of Sierra's Space Quest series, have reunited after twenty years, and they're collaborating on a new SpaceVenture. Like the recent Leisure Suit Larry revival, the Two Guys are relying on crowdfunding through Kickstarter to get their new sci-fi adventure game off the ground. They've already released one prototype in HTML5, and they plan to release more as the project meets future funding milestones."

The Two Guys from Andromeda are Kickstarting a New SpaceVenture

Decaffeinated Jedi Decaffeinated Jedi writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Decaffeinated Jedi writes "The Two Guys from Andromeda, legendary creators of Sierra's Space Quest series, have joined the adventuring gaming revival and launched a Kickstarter for their new SpaceVenture. They're positioning the new game as a spiritual successor to the Space Quest series, and they already have an impressive voice cast on board, including narrator Gary Owens and Portal's Ellen McLain. Can you spare a few buckazoids?"

Two Guys from Andromeda are Back!

Decaffeinated Jedi Decaffeinated Jedi writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Decaffeinated Jedi writes "The Two Guys from Andromeda, designers of Sierra's classic Space Quest series, are back together and they're working on a new project. Their recently-launched website describes the game under development as a "Spaceventure" — so it's safe to assume they're planning a spiritual successor to the adventures of galactic sanitation engineer, Roger Wilco. The website also includes handy directions for making your very own Andromedan snout from a popular Earth-based snack cake."

Decaffeinated Jedi (648571) writes "What happens when a cat seizes control of Windows' text-to-speech feature? Well, in this case of this blogger, the cat in question used it to send a none too subtle threat to its owner: "Somehow, the cat activated the text-to-speech program and typed 'RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR' into the text box by walking on the keyboard. That was the sound that woke me up this morning. When you think about it, 'RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR' sounds an awful lot like a growl."
