Over the past few weeks I’ve been keeping an eye on the Kickstarter by the original creators of Space Quest and getting more and more worried as it was taking them an extraordinarily long time to get up to the $500k they needed.
Pretty much any gamer over the age of 28 knows Space Quest and has spent countless hours wandering the universe in their title and yet when they announced they were getting back together and creating a new game in the same genre it didn’t seem to raise the same levels of excitement.
In fact up until a few hours ago the game wasn’t going to get made but with 11 hours to go they ticked over the $500k mark and are now currently sitting on $520k which is great news for any Space Quest fans out there.
Possibly their struggles have to do with their marketing campaign which does appear to be stuck in the 80’s but I do feel they deserve a shot and am now looking forward to travelling the galaxy in search of toilet humour and villains.
