Decaffeinated Jedi writes "A team of fans has released a short retro point-and-click adventure game titled "Pledge Quest I: The SpaceVenture Adventure" to rally support for the new Kickstarter from Space Quest creators, the Two Guys from Andromeda. The game features its protagonist, Bea (named for Roger Wilco's love interest in the Space Quest series), completing a series of puzzles that culminate in her logging on to her computer and making a pledge in support of the upcoming sci-fi/comedy SpaceVenture game from the Two Guys. The "Pledge Quest" game was conceptualized and developed by fans in just a few short days, in hope that it would rally support for the Two Guys' SpaceVenture (which reaches its deadline on June 12)."

+ - Ask Slashdot: Re-kickstarting our Kickstarter?-> 9

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "We are supporters of an old-school adventure game Kickstarter that is dealing with "Kickstarter fatigue". The project itself is a sarcastic/comedic, science-fiction adventure, with reknowned and proven talent behind it — now that Kickstarter's adventure game honeymoon period is seemingly over, the big gaming and news sites are not interested in the project, community sites are not interested in front paging articles about the project, and famous twitterers with sci-fi leanings have all but ignored our request for twitter help. Due to the reluctance of the big gaming sites in talking about Kickstarter projects, it is up to the fans to try and get this across the line in the next 8 days — what other avenues or sites can we use to get word about our project to a wider audience, without coming across as spammers?"

flyingmonkfish (2651699) writes ""Remember the old-school Sierra On-Line Space Questseries? Yes, back in the day before live Internet pr0n. 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; maybe respecting the style of art and comedy for which they are remembered. They sure aren't telling us what they'll do, so don't sue us if it turns out to be a space themed version of Animal Crossing! SpaceVenture is rumoured to lambaste sci-fi franchises, and the team claims that none are safe, including Doctor Who, Stargate, Avatar, and others. One thing is certain, they'll make fun of YOU. They've lined up an all-star voice-acting cast, including Rob Paulsen (off-camera voice on "Funniest Pets and People"), Ellen McLain (cut-scenes on Godzilla: Unleashed), and radio legend Gary Owens (pre-recorded station ID announcer for CHPQ-FM). It's being promoted with a blog, podcasts, videos, live chats,and fan efforts including SQ marathons,comics, and fan videos. Sex tape coming soon. Best of all, as funding milestones are reached the team releases Chrome Web Store exclusive prototypes; somewhat playable concept art demonstrating how l33t their HTML5 sk1lzz are! The Kickstarter project targets everything under the sun — PC/Mac/Linux/iOS/Android, none of them well — for release and includes expensive swag and rewards that can land you in the game itself — for the price of a nice car. So go on and look if you're a diehard fan of adventure games with sci-fi parody — yes, the two of you. Did we mention we're desperate? Funding has bottomed out so we're now down to desperate measures and running on fumes. WE NEED YOUR HELP!""

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!"
