Space Quest Creators Launch Kickstarter for Spacey Adventure Title

You probably don't know who Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe are right off the top of your head, but the duo are best known for creating the popular Space Quest series of comedic adventure games for Sierra back in the day. Like Leisure Suit Larry creator Al Lowe and Gabriel Knight creator Jane Jensen, the duo see hope in creating a new spacey adventure by crowdfunding it, so they have launched a Kickstarter campaign to do just that.

The game they are looking to fund is called SpaceVenture and it will be available on PC, Mac, Linux, iPad and Android. While details are thin on the game, we assume it will follow the familiar formula the two perfected with Space Quest. Two Guys From Andromeda also announced that they have some great help for the voice acting duties required for their new game; Ellen McLain of (voice of GlaDOS), Robert Clotworthy (StarCraft 1 and 2), Rob Paulsen (Monkey Island), and Space Quest 4 and 6 narrator Gary Owens will be part of the game's voice cast.

Two Guys From Andromeda are looking to raise $500,000 to develop the game. So far they have managed to raise $78,120 from 1,485 backers, with 33 days to go. Check out their sales pitch in the video to your left and then head on over to their Kickstarter page.
