Space Quest Creators Turn To Kickstarter For SpaceVenture


Posted May 9, 2012 - By Adam Rosenberg

Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, known in their Sierra Entertainment days as The Two Guys From Andromeda and the creators of the Space Quest series, have turned to Kickstarter for their upcoming adventure game, SpaceVenture. We first heard about the duo's return in April 2012 when they announced the formation of their new studio and their plans to return to the adventure games... er... game.

The Kickstarter page, which seeks $500,000 in funding, reveals a few new details about the game. The plan is to bring SpaceVenture to PC, Mac, Linux, iPad, and Android tablets, with an "enhanced demo" of the game for each $100,000 milestone reached. There's also some word on what amounts to a pretty star-studded voice cast: Rob Paulsen (Pinky from Pinky and the Brain), Ellen McClain (GLaDOS), Gary Owens (Space Quest 4 & 6 narrator), Robert Clotworthy (StarCraft's Jim Raynor), and John Patrick Lowrie (Sniper from Team Fortress 2). Murphy and Crowe are also in talks to bring back some of the original composers from the Space Quest series.

Backers at a certain level will not only appear in the credits, but will also be integrated into the game in the form of "digital fan cards" collectibles, though the game will also include an option for turning this feature off. Check out the Kickstarter page for a full rundown of the reward tiers.
