Space Quest Spiritual-Successor "SpaceVenture", Supporting Linux 01 June 2012 08:48
Sci-fi comedy adventure game fans! Attention! Remember the Sierra
On-Line Space Quest series? I certainly do... they were a fantastic
comedy sci-fi satire series of adventure games.
The Two Guys from Andromeda SpaceVenture project has the Two Guys
reuniting for a spiritual successor to the SQ series, after 20 years
apart, working on other projects... their epic reunion means a great
new games (on PC/Mac/Linux/iOS/Android) with a new story and IP, and
a new hilarious universe, with new awesome protagonists, villains,
and cool locations.
To give us all a feeling of the game style, the Guys have created
mini-game prototypes, a kind of living concept art that you can
actually play and feel, based on the Sarien HTML5 engine (covered
previously on Heise when they reimplemented Space Quest I: The Sarien
Encounter online for free, http://h-online.com/-741227 ).
Best of all... if SpaceVenture is successful, it the Two Guys
will be in a really good position with Activision to prove to them
that they're the right & only team to continue producing Space Quest
games in the future! Activision has the SQ IP is in their hands, and
is watching this closely (and yes, has given permission to use the
Two Guys characters, and other incidentals like buckazoids, etc). So,
if we want to play this awesome SpaceVenture they're going to build
for us, and we want more Space Quest games in the future, then all we
have to do is back this Kickstarter and bring that flavor of sci-fi
parody back to life.
I personally, am just as excited with the new game idea as I am
with bringing Roger Wilco back into space.
Please consider supporting sci-fi comedy adventure gaming on
Linux! If that appeals to you, to tgakick.com and pledge for one of
the awesome rewards they've prepared for us.
