Help the 2 Guys fun their latest Space Venture. They've reunited after 20 years!

$15 gets you the game on your platform of choice (including Linux)

Only $30 to beta test!

$75 and you get an exclusive backer T-shirt

Of course there are also premium tiers that get you awesome stuff like limited edition (designed by Mark Crowe) Buckazoid coins, your chance to vote on concept art and death scenes, etc!

I have already donated. Hoping this gets funded. Space Quest was amazing - combining humor, action, adventure! And while this won't be Space Quest - it will be by the same two who gave us Space Quest! And that's good enough for me!

Awesome! Love hearing this!

They have breached the 50% mark - with two weeks to go. I hope that more people are just waiting last minute - or those (and there's a lot!) sitting at 15 bucks pledge just a little more!

In the mean time... here's some fun I did to help promote...

Anyone who loved Space Quest, and you must if you're looking at this thread right? Should definitely pledge to the Kickstarter, SpaceVenture's going to have everything that made SQ awesome. The Two Guys want to make this game, we want them to make this game right? So let's help them make this game!

I pledged on day 1 or 2, and have increased my pledge three times since then after seeing all their updates, videos, and prototypes and the campaign progresses.

There are 5500+ forum posts over there, with LOTS of great SQ fans reminiscing and thinking about the future.

You can tell the creators are very passionate about it, and the Space Quest series was a gem for me as a kid. For $15 you pre-purchase and help fund development of the spiritual sequel. If they don't get enough money raised, then your credit card won't be charged.

Plus Kickstarter is fun too, lots of excitement there. Here's hoping it gets funded

I love seeing everyone come together on different forums and uniting to get this funded! I think everyone knows this is going to be a good, FUN game.

It's been too long since I have played a game that just made me laugh and shake my head...

One of the things they were doing (and never really judged yet?) was making "Twinkie Nose" versions of yourself (sort of like how the Two Guys have that nose)... These have been the submissions I did thus far - last one is one of my favorites.

I just learned about this today from another forums post, and I'm now a backer. Sure hope they get funded!

It's awesome that people are posting this on forums! It's really about getting the word out! (So if YOU have Twitter, or Facebook, or visit other forums - feel free to post a link to their kickstarter or the short cut: http://www.tgakick.com )

Thank you for backing it!
