Two Guys Are Back! SPACEVENTURE!

In Space No One Can Hear You Clean, er, Scream. But if you post in this forum about Space Quest - someone's sure to hear you. I think. Try it, anyway!

So there was a part in the latest release of the beta where something was happening to Ace that stopped me from going any further.

Others were not experiencing it - so I did a fresh start - got to this specific part. Same thing.

Tried again - same thing.

Tried again - doing a lot of things in different orders - same thing.

Installed it onto my laptop - clean start - no issue last night.

And today, successfully beat the game. There's some stuff they're still cleaning up (they need to fix the save game feature).

But over all, it's a terrific game! I immensely enjoyed it.

And it's visually beautiful.

Good ol' Ace Hardway on Twitter has shared images (though the words he says with the images aren't actually what's happening - to avoid spoilers)

I have it on good authority he's a cool cat.

Since the beta doesn't have end credits (they're adding those now) - I was able to get a clean shot of the galaxy shot - and then copy the "SpaceVenture" text from the splash screen (which also had "Beta x.x.x" and other info over the galaxy image)... so I could finally make a clean wallpaper of the opening splash.

Better version. Noticed a row of pixels not colored on the right. Also softened up the letters a little.

Thanks!

I really am looking forward to play this game as a full release. The beta is amazing; through the bugs and all.

Granted the longest Kickstarter (yet) to deliver - but so far better than the other "Sierra Related" Kickstarters I'd backed and got.

Er ... backed and got? I'm confused. Do you mean the Sierra-related Kickstarters that didn't come to anything?

So LSLReloaded game out; Pinkerton Road one (Moebius?) came out; Hero-U came out - the SpaceVenture actually release isn't out. I've been doing the beta. And despite a zillion years since it was funded (and not yet released) - SpaceVenture is by and far the best of the games (in my opinion) that came out from those former Sierra employees.

Hmm. *shrug* I played LSLR, and enjoyed it for what it was: an occasionally funny (and sometimes not) salute to LSL1. ;)

I haven't played Moebius, but I played the GK1 remake and enjoyed it too.

I'm pretty sure my views on Hero-U are well-known. ;)

I haven't tried SpaceVenture yet, but I hope it's good ... *crosses fingers* ;)
