As appears to so often be the case, the Space Quest creators’ Kickstarter for SpaceVenture has managed to reach its enormous half million target in the last moments. With three days to go they were still close to $100,000 short, but a remarkable eleventh hour surge has seen it reach $529,175, with just three hours to go. So it seems there will be more not-Roger Wilco having more not-space janitor adventures in not-Space Quest.
The forthcoming game seems to heavily involve a chicken called Cluck Y’egger. That’s the point at which the humour is pitched. Here’s some nonsense from that:
The voice cast lined up for this is spectacular. Gary Owens, the wonderful narrator from the earlier Space Quest games is there, along with Rob “Pinky” Paulson, Robert “Jim Raynor” Clothworthy, John “Sniper” Patrick Lowrie, and Ellen “GLaDOS” McLain. Let’s hope the words they’ll now be writing will do them justice.
