+ - Big Finish Games Bringing Back Full-Motion Video Adventure Games->

Submitted by
Mr. Jaggers
Mr. Jaggers writes "Widely remembered as the pioneers in Full-Motion Video adventure gaming, the creators of the beloved Tex Murphy futuristic neo-noir series of adventure games has successfully funded their latest installment, code named Project Fedora, via crowd-funding. The team conducted a successful AMA last week and will feature much of the original cast of characters (including game designer Chris Jones, as Tex himself), and, if his interest can be peaked, the voice talents of James Earl Jones, among others. It ought to be a real treat for fans of gritty hard-boiled detective stories who like their sci-fi dark and dystopian, to see an FMV game done right, by one of the only developers to have pulled it off well. Pre-orders are being taken here and here."

Mr. Jaggers writes "Remember the old-school Sierra On-Line Space Quest series? With the original IP tied up in a giant Activision-Gordian-Knot, Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe ("The Two Guys from Andromeda"), the creators of SQ, have set up their own indie studio to invent a whole new hilarious universe, new characters, and puzzles; all the while respecting the style of art and comedy for which they are remembered. SpaceVenture is set to lambaste sci-fi franchises (as was done in SQ), and the team claims that none are safe, including Doctor Who, Stargate, Avatar, and others. They've lined up an all-star voice-acting cast, including Rob Paulsen (Animaniac Yakko, Pinky, TMNT's Raphael), Ellen McLain (GLaDOS), and radio legend Gary Owens. It's being promoted with a blog, podcasts, videos, live chats, and fan efforts including SQ marathons, comics, and fan videos. Best of all, as funding milestones are reached the team builds and releases prototypes; living, playable concept art demonstrating the character of the final game! The Kickstarter project targets PC/Mac/Linux/iOS/Android for release and includes awesome rewards that can land you in the game itself. It's definitely worth a look for fans of adventure games and sci-fi parody!"
