Based on a previous thread I am to assume these are hipsters and I should not like them, correct?

And now I've got the theme music from Space Quest 1 in my head. Thanks subby.

Considering that I was never able to get to a software store when I was a kid and resorted to borrowing other people's copies, I owe it to them. Dropped my contribution.

Been a backer since Day 1. It's even inspired me to fire up my Space Quest Collection set and replay the series. (I also just recently discovered the fan remake of Sq2 in VGA style, which is pretty neat!)

Anyhow, the Two Guys are providing tons of behind the scenes content and they're really passionate about what they're doing. The vocal talent is also undeniably stellar. I'm stoked about this game.

I wish I had $300,000, it looks like a good investment.

Gah, after having a strong conversation with the wife this weekend over frivolous spending I see this.... I wonder if I can control myself and not donate to keep from being a hypocrit?

You can't have too many buckazoids, that's my motto!

Now-a-days it will be made using 'point & click', high-lighting the items of interest. These types of game were better when you had to actually 'think' and type, i.e. 'jump in well'

This is it! This is the one I've been waiting for since Kickstarter started!
/Yeah, overly dramatic. But I hope it succeeds.

It would certainly be interesting to see how improvements in the intervening years in computational linguistics could enhance that type of game. So many of them came to a point where, even though you thinking along the right lines toward solving a puzzle, you had to type a specific sentence to get it to work. (Of course, that probably drove calls to the 1-900 hint lines.)

Ugh.. I remember mixing formulas in one of the KQ games (I think 2) where you had to retype an entire paragraph PERFECTLY from the manual including all capitalization, spacing, and punctuation. Probably not so bad now, but when I was like 7 it was rough stuff.

Anyhow, I feel as if I could sit down today and still remember enough to (within a few hours) beat any of the KQ, SQ, or PQ games. I must have played through all of them 20 times... though I may have to look up how to rewire the plane bomb in PQ2.

And QFG was the freakin bomb... though I preferred the name "Hero's Quest"
HQ1&2 were great, 3 & 4 not so much imo... that's when they got away from the typing and more into the mouse crap.

Anyhow, best games: QFG 1 & 2 (not the remade 1!), PQ2, KQ 3-7, and all of the Space Quest games (including the last couple that DID require a lot of mouse stuff). SQ2 was probably my favorite, but I was really mad at SQ1 because IIRC if you didn't grab the Rubix Cube out of the locker at the very frickin start of the game you couldn't get past the monster right there at the end. WTH Sierra??
