    Guys,

    Don't know if you know about this already, but the original creators of Space Quest are back and working on a brand new adventure game called SpaceVenture which promises to be in the same vein as their classic, sci-fi, Sierra series! I made a thread about this a while ago but it got deleted because someone thought I was trying to promote the Kickstarter for the game, which I wasn't. I just want to discuss this awesome development with others!

    Anyway, what's cool is that they're developing the game for iOS, OSX as well as Windows, Linux and Android! Rumour has it that they're also developing in HTML5! Anyway. Any of you guys play Space Quest back in the day?

    Here's their promo vid if you want to watch it!

    Yeah it actually looks really good. I really love how they are developing natively for the Mac and iOS. That's what hooked me.

    Dave Hyatt, an Apple employee who focuses on the development of HTML 5 has actually contributed quite a large amount to the project. The Two Guys From Andromeda (game designers) are making quite a few waves in the community by suggesting that this game might be entirely coded in HTML 5 and then released as a non browser bases stand alone app.

    Every time they reach a $100 000 milestone they release an upgraded prototype version of what the game could look like on the Chrome web store for free too! The proto's are pretty basic at the moment but are flourishing with each build. Really exciting stuff.

    Kickstarter is doing fairly well. Just ticked over to $375000 out of $500000. Anyone play old Sierra games on their Mac?

    Just 3 days left to support the Two Guys Kickstarter!

    Hi there, I just wanted to give everyone an update on the SpaceVenture Kickstarter by the Creators of Space Quest:

    We are currently hovering at 420k and need 80k to seal the deal but there is only 71 hours left so if ever any of you guys and gals were on the fence about Joining the cause for Andromeda, now would be the time!

    Tons of awesome stuff even in the 30 dollar tier but the real meat is about 125 *Buckazoids come to mind* Of course, ANY amount at all that you pledge will mean the world to us. We love our $15 backers to pieces , after all!

    Go here http://tgakick.com and peruse the rewards and I think you'll like what you see!

    Be a part of bringing this classic game developing duo from the Gold age of SIERRA back to the forefront to join their pals!

    Thanks a lot and hopefully we'll see you on the comments page!
