Space Quest was one of my favorite game franchises of all time. Those old Sierra games have a special place in my heart.
LOL! Agreed. Well, I loved pretty much all the classic Sierra games - Leisure Suit Larry, Space Quest, Police Quest, King's Quest, Gabriel Knight, ... Well, I could go on and on really! LOL
I really couldn't care if it was links to nude Jessica Alba pics. There's just something slimy about creating an account just to post a plug for.. well.. anything.
Maybe. The post is written well enough and contains relevant information presented in an easily readable format. It wasn't spammed all over the forums, it was simply posted in the wrong one. Anyway, the Kickstarter is legitimate and if you're a fan of the series you might consider donating.
Indeed it's legit! I am VERY excited about it! I already donated 100 bucks for this one! (There was a Leisure Suit Larry one that succeeded that I donated to - and Jane Jensen who did Gabriel Knight has one going on for her new company and games!)

I'm forming a Kickstarter campaign to collect a large enough sum of cash to convince Jessica Alba to pose nude.
Let me know when you get that going... LOL
If it's written like any of the regulars would have written it, and contains legitimate information, I don't see a problem. If I had made that same exact post over in General Game Discussion (or whatever the @#%^ that forum is actually called), nobody would have cared. I mean, unless this site is no longer a video game community. What if it was someone who just lurked for a long time and had never made a post until the exciting prospect of a new SQ game came about?
I'm not saying to not be skeptical of low postcount posters making a thread with lots of links. I'm saying that in this specific case, I don't see a problem with what was posted.
Also, I think if you mouse-hover over the links, your browser will show (usually on the very bottom of the page) the actual URL it's going to... (so I never trust those ones that are abbreviated... because then you can't tell what the actual URL is pointing to...)
I wish they would say a little bit more about what they want to make. Would be great it they would make a true Space Quest 7 (they had actually started on it and supposedly there was a demo released a long time ago.). I am sure there are too many copyright issues floating about for them to do that though. Sierra at one point was my fav game company no doubt. I loved about every one of the adventure games that they released. I just have a problem funding something when all they say is "A space adventure."
Agreed about Sierra being a favorite (back in the day). I think they're going with "SpaceVenture" right now because there may be legal issues (copyrights and what not) with actually using Space Quest...

A few years back there were some fans of the series that created their own Space Quest game (Jessica Alba all nudey nudey
). I don't recall playing all the way through but was impressed by how much it felt like an old Sierra game.
LOL! Should play it! It's good! (I mean the game, not Jessica Alba... though you can play her too... Well, till she calls the police!) :-D
Pimpin' made easy!
