Although we wouldn't rule out seeing another Space Quest, this is indeed a new series. The good news is, SpaceVenture is put out by the Two Guys that made Space Quest! Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe. We think you'll feel right at home with what is coming together for the new game!
Kickstarter works exclusively with Amazon as a payment vendor. We can put PayPal on the Kickstarter page but any money that gets submitted to it does not get associated with Kickstarter, which means it doesn't count towards our goal. When the pledged amount reaches $500k, we plan to add PayPal for people to use from that point on :)
Yes! We plan to make the game as available as we possibly can by using services like GOG.com in order to make that reality! There won't be any real copy protection on the game. Don't be surprised if some fake gag copy protection shows up though. ;)
If only it were that simple! We actually did take all the steps before even announcing the Two Guys From Andromeda were back together in the first place. We even talked to the VP with Activision in charge of the Space Quest IP. It wasn't ruled out that there may be something in the future, but for now, they aren't quite ready to move forward with anything on that. We did obtain approval to use the Two Guys From Andromeda name though.
