We had previously heard that the Two Guys from Andromeda, Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe -- the pig-snouted duo behind Sierra's acclaimed Space Quest series of adventure games from the 80's and 90's -- were returning from a 20+ year game development hiatus and now they have revealed their hopeful first project with a Kickstarter drive for an adventure game titled Two Guys SpaceVenture
We fully intend to bring back every element that you guys loved from our original games! You’ve been very clear and concise as to what you enjoyed from our previous efforts. Here’s a short list of things you can expect if our project gets funded:
  • A Sci-fi adventure from Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe working happily together as a team once again.
  • Hilarious death sequences
  • Tons of the fresh (and moldy) pop-culture references
  • Fun and unique humor
  • Art design and direction by Mark
  • Dialog that will make you blow nostril Tang, written by Scott along with Mark
  • Narration of all this by Gary Owens and the voice acting of other characters by the above mentioned quality industry voice talent
  • Game music that will hopefully give you chills and wedge in your main orb for the rest of your natural Earth life and make you wish you lived inside your computer!
  • A game that you will feel comfortable playing with your children, but with some entertainment that will safely appeal only to the adult psyche
The pitch video paints a more complete picture of their vision, and introduces some of the prospective voice actors, who's impressive histories include the likes of GlaDOS and the Portal turrets, the TF2 Sniper, Pinky and the Brain, Space Ghost and Jim frikken Raynor.

Watch the pitch embedded below and head over to the Kickstarter page to chip in and make this thing happen.

Holy hell! This is the first kickstarter project I'm actually interested in. I'm actually considering pledging now, when I thought there couldn't possibly be a game worth backing.

Fingers crossed now that Chris Taylor announces Total Annihilation 2 and Tim Shafer announces Grim Fandango 2.

Going much slower than the Larry kickstarter unfortunately :/ Oh well, at least they've hit the halfway mark...

Yeah really slow, I'll be sad if they don't make their target, and its looking pretty likely :(

Cavedog entertainment and all associated IPs (including total annihilation) was purchased by GT interactive in 1997, IIRC. That's why there was never a true sequel - only the spiritual successor to it (supreme commander). So I doubt we'll ever see a kickstart project for it.

~40 hours to go and they need 40K. Go go go!

Kickstarter is a good idea but I wonder if it's going to shift the way games are developed and if we'll just see everyone (the likes of EA, etc) dump their game into Kickstarter to see if it gauges enough interest before committing to development.

im not sure that begging for money is a good look :(

Pretty sure begging on a kick starter project is just like begging some other investor for money. Just when you're on your knees sucking some big wig corporates cock to invest, they call it negotiating.
