Feature: My F***ing Sky

The RPG Scrollbars: Adventures In Spaaaaaaace!

Today, a little bit of heresy. I'm going to talk about adventure games. Specifically, about a thing I've always loved in them, when they offer the chance - that sense of being given a ship and a universe to explore. I get a shiver when I look at the star-map. I feel proud of my usually low-resolution, 256-colour VGA vessel. And yet, jump genres to…

Wilco: Two Guys’ SpaceVenture Kickstarter Just Makes It

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…

Space Quest Sequel Finally Gets A Kickstarter

If you were to ask me, "Hey, John, which Sierra Online adventure series would you like to bring back to life?" I'd drive you crazy by not saying Quest For Glory, and in fact stamping my feet and shouting, "I WANT MORE SPACE QUEST!" Well, if only people will give the two original SQ creators $500,000, I'll have one! Indeed, it's this week's forty-seventy-billionth Kickstarter,…

Two Guys From Andromeda Reform To Make Space Quest

You heard it here first, and now it's definitely happening. Space Quest developers Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy have announced they will be working on a new project, and there's a video to go with it. It's a peculiar one. A very peculiar one, seemingly recorded by Skype and animated from photographs. And most surprisingly, Mark Crowe is involved, having previously ruled himself out. Replay…

Could Roberta and Ken Williams be about to come out of retirement? Speaking to Al Lowe and Paul Trowe for an interview due later today, RPS learned that the company remaking the Leisure Suit Larry games is also in talks with other Sierra adventure alumni about bringing back their classic series. Replay Games' Trowe revealed that they're currently in negotiations with both Sierra On-line co-founders…

Feature: Where No Fan Has Gone Before

Space Quest: Roger Wilco Not Over And Out

For a classic series like Space Quest to get a fan-made sequel is an achievement. To get three in one month is unprecedented. First came the polished-up remake Space Quest 2 VGA, in which intrepid hero space janitor Roger Wilco finds that saving the galaxy comes with a price, followed by two full-length, brand new adventures picking up where the series left off back in…

Vohaul Astral: Space Quest Remake & Sequel

Any Space Quest fans out there? A remake and a sequel would like to make your acquaintance. The remake is of Space Quest II and the sequel takes place after Space Quest VI. They were made by different teams but Indiegames.com just made me aware of them both, and the antagonist is the same chap in both. Reason enough to bundle them into one post,…

Space Quest & King’s Quest Join The Reunion

I'm stuck at this point. The problem is this: for years and years we had to suffer every mention of an adventure game being accompanied by a phrase somehow relating to adventure games being dead. I mean, I wrote them myself when I was young and stupid. They would go, "The adventure game may be dead, but here's one last gasp," or more optimistically, "The…
