Space Quest Spiritual Sequel Gets Fully Funded

June 12, 2012 -

Two Guys from Andromeda walk into a bar. The one guy says to the other, "Let's start a Kickstarter to fund a spiritual sequel to the classic Sierra adventure game series, Space Quest." The other guy says "F#@! yeah." Fast forward a number of weeks later and the Guys from Andromeda have managed to pull it off.

Roger Wilco may never fly again, but his spirit will rise from the grave in a new game tentatively titled SpaceVentures. The funding closed at $539,767 - $39,767 above their target goal - with the help of 10,809 backers.

SpaceVenture is described as a sci-fi comedy adventure game that combines "interplanetary exploration, puzzle-solving, and space travel." The game will feature a new goofy space travelling protagonist named Ace Hardway.

You can see the final result on the Kickstarter page.

Re: Space Quest Spiritual Sequel Gets Fully Funded

Maybe if they had got funded sooner, some of the development costs could have gone to "buying the rights to Space Quest from Activision."
