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.
