Not even sure if most of you are even old enough to remember Space Quest by Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy (back in the days when Sierra was a great company - now owned by Activision). Anyway - recently, there's been a surge in "Adventure Games" by us "Old Timers" - such games as Leisure Suit Larry had a successfully Kickstarter Campaign, as well as Jane Jensen (who made Gabriel Knight for Sierra, but some of you might have heard of her more recent game Gray Matter.) As it turns out, I am here to talk about neither of those two (since they've both successfully met their Kickstarter Goals!) - but rather, I want to talk about Two Guys From Andromeda.



They've launched a Kickstarter campaign to do a new video game (thankfully between Leisure Suit Larry, Jane Jensen's Pinkerton Road, and now SpaceVenture - the Kickstarter campaigns have been nicely launched so it's not one huge financial hit by all three!) - their site is found here: http://guysfromandromeda.com/



You can see by the site, their zanney sense of humor that made Space Quest such a huge success back then - and I am hoping, they get the chance to create a new game, not only to entertain us "Old Timers" who remember "Sierra from back in the day!" - but also give a chance for you, Young WhipperSnappers a chance to enjoy some good gaming mixed in with some excellent comedy!



I would like to see this come true (I donated over $100! So you can tell I am serious here!) Their Kickstarter Page is here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spaceventure/two-guys-spaceventure-by-the-cr eators-of-space-que



You can check out the cool list of things that they offer, depending on how much you donate to the cause! I am just a Janitor, floating through CyberSpace, trying to spread the word! (I guess that joke only really works if you're familiar with Space Quest! - Trust me, their jokes are much funnier than mine! They're paid professionals! I am just a minion!)



We'd love for anyone - and everyone! - to help spread the word! Whether you pledge or not! Spread it via Facebook! Via Twitter! Via MySpace! (Does anyone even use that anymore?) Put it in your forum signatures! Whatever you can do to help - again, even if you don't or can't pledge - the help is GREATLY appreciated!
