The VO of SpaceVenture - Part 2

Posted by Two Guys From Andromeda (Creator)

Happy new year everyone! We know this update is late coming. The end of the year went slower than we had hoped, even with all the pushing we did to finish things up. We wanted to give a status update as well as show more of the voice over for SpaceVenture. This update will contain a couple of interviews with the cast, as well as show more of the VO in the actual game. 

Currently, we have been plugging VO into the game, but still have a ways to go to get it to the polished phase. The game previously went through the first round of beta testing. Our beta testers gave us some great feedback as to what needed to change in order to make the game play better. We are trying to make sure we focus on fixing all the main issues that beta testers brought to our attention. Soon we will begin the second round of beta testing to find out how the game is feeling in the state it is in now. How this plays out will effect release date. We are very optimistic on getting the game into everyone's hands over the coming months.

Thank you all for your continued patience!

First off, if you missed the last VO update we posted on Kickstarter, you can view it HERE

VIDEO OF ACE HARDWAY AND IMOM INTERACTING

The below video is another demonstration of some of our voice over in action within SpaceVenture. This clip, VO of Ace(played by Maurice LaMarche) and iMom(played by Ellen McLain) having a little back and forth here at the beginning of the game.  We hope you'll get some of the humor and references that were thrown in. 

VIDEO OF ACE HARDWAY DROPPING BY NURBS BAR TO VISIT HIS PALS

This video clip is taken from the Nurbs Landing Bar. Ace(played by Maurice LaMarche) hooks up with his buddies, Url(played by Rob Paulsen), and Nurb(played by John Patrick Lowie). We definitely still have some fine tuning and polish that needs to be done with some of the mouth movements, but we hope you all will enjoy a quick look at how this is coming along. 

BEHOLD! THE LEGENDARY THREE HABENEROS MUSIC VIDEO

Prepare to get this song stuck in your head!

The below video features vocals by Rob Paulsen, Jason Charles Miller, and John Patrick Lowrie. 

The lyrics were written by Mark Crowe. 

____________________________

We’re Three habaneros

Three gay habaneros

We love to sing for you in our sombreros

We welcome you our winner

Free Breakfast, lunch, or dinner

And though your meal is free, does not include gratuity

Our tacos HOLY MOLE! 

Much better than Chipotle

and you don’t have to worry ‘bout e-coli

Our spices are atomic

explosive, Gastronomic

our salsa is so potent it will make you hypersonic

Oh please try our chingadero

Deep fried in it’s own bowl, 

made with our special dough

So crunchy and spicey

but not all that pricey, 

it’s three times as nicey

When you get it to go.

We’re Three habaneros

Three gay habaneros

We love to sing for you in our sombreros

We’ll sing for you all day but to stop us you must pay. 

Yes, here at Taco Nova it’s the customary wa-aay.

___________________________________

Without spoiling too much in the video, we'll tell you this. Ace arrives in Taco Nova to refuel(in more ways than one) and ends up being the one billionth customer, which triggers the "Three Haberneros" to begin serenading him. There is a puzzle here that you'll need to figure out in order to get them to stop singing to you.

I would also like to give a plug to James Mulvale for putting together and performing the music for this song. We gave James a rudimentary idea of what we wanted, and he knocked it out of the park. James also created an 8-bit version of the song that you will hear when you play the Pepper Pals arcade machine you see in the scene. Yes that's right, that is an actual playable arcade machine in a SciFi fast food joint, sound familiar? 

If you're not familiar with James, you should definitely check out his work at https://www.jamesmulvale.com/. If you have little kids in your household, James(and his wife) most recently started writing/performing children's music that involves some cool crafts for kids and sing along songs. It's called "Sweetypies" and you can check it out HERE

A SIT DOWN WITH ELLEN MCLAIN 

Ellen McLain was kind enough to have a little sit down with me(Chris Pope) during our VO session with her. You may have heard Ellen as GLaDOS in the legendary Portal series that was released by Valve a few years back. Ellen is also known for her work in Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, and DOTA 2.   

A FUN CHAT WITH JOHN PATRICK LOWRIE

John Patrick Lowrie and I also had a nice discussion about his experiences at being a singer, writer and voice actor in the entertainment industry. John is probably most well known as the voice of the Sniper in Team Fortress 2, but you may have heard his voice in lots of games over the years, including DOTA 2. 

We still have more actors and videos to showcase, including Robert Clotworthy, Vince Caso, Melanie Stone and Jake Stormoen. Stay tuned!

UPDATE ON SCOTT MURPHY 

First up, we wanted to thank everyone who contributed to Scott's GoFundMe campaign. With your help, we made the goal pretty quickly! Thank you also for your thoughts and prayers as well. Scott is moving forward and though he has hurtles he's still facing, he has made it through the first part of his cancer challenges. Please continue to send thoughts and prayers his way as he continues his battle. 

SUPPORT LORI AND COREY COLE 

If you've been living under an asteroid and haven't heard, Lori and Corey Cole(makers of the Quest for Glory series) have released their new game, "Hero U". If you haven't already checked it out, you should! It's getting great reviews!  

Here are some links of interest: Hero U Website: http://www.hero-u.com/  

Review on Metacritic  

YouTube video explaining "Why you should buy"  

WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL THIS THING IS DONE RIGHT AND RELEASED

To those in the comments saying that the game will never ship. We get it. We've heard you, but we hope you all realize a few things. We are all real people with real lives and families. I can promise you 100% that we have worked very very hard these years to complete this game. We have lost countless hours of sleep worrying about this, as well as the blood sweat and tears that have gone into this project. There is no way in this universe that we would let your financial sacrifices, not to mention the hard work and time away from our families just get thrown away like that. THIS GAME WILL GET FINISHED. 

Of course, the comments are open for you to say what you will.  We respect everyone's right to say what you want and give us your thoughts, whether it be positivity or negativity, but we will continue to keep our noses to the grind stone and focus on getting this thing done, as opposed to dwelling on negativity. 

Regardless of how you feel about the project and it's pace, we thank you for your support and continued patience.

      Love it. Wouldn't be a TGA game without some lawsuit kindling. <3

      I want to be upset the game isn't finished, but three gay habenero's singing in their sombreros has a way of mellowing me out. Hopefully Chipotle is still relevent when the game comes out ;)

    3. Jens Francis on

      Great work guys! Keep up the good work.

      Seems like you may have outlasted the haters. Just us diehards out here now....

      Skål, Jens.

      I've gone years without even hope of a game from you guys, I can make it a bit longer. I'd rather it be good than quick. I hope Scott is doing better, you two made most of my favorite childhood games. I still have the floppies.

      Can not wait, have just replayed all the Space Quest Games still love them all.

    6. Justin on

      Those are the first decent videos you've put out. But I would be more interested in updated videos of past stuff you've posted showing how you've cleaned them up beyond the clipping nightmare they currently sit at.

    7. Jochem Menting on

      Great update! Things finally seem to come together in a good way. Cheers for pushing through! Perhaps the september 2019 release I predicted is not that far from the truth. Goodluck finishing the game!

      Keep your chinny chin chins up, fellas.

      The best update. <3

      @Oldblueeyes there will be a survey when the time comes. Other than that, just make sure Kickstarter has all your correct info

    11. Oldblueeyes on

      Thanks for the great update. Speaking of updates. I moved recently. How do I update my shipping address?

    12. Sean Jordan on

      I'm excited about this game and know it will be worth the wait! I laughed a lot during the clips shown and I love the way the game's shaping up. It feels very much like Space Quest's best qualities combined with something new, much the same way the Coles' Hero U felt like a spiritual return to the Quest For Glory series while also capturing something new and exciting.

      This update affirmed that my faith in you all was well-placed, and it's disappointing that we have backers who are being negative instead of encouraging. We've all seen what rushed and unfinished Kickstarter games look like; it's far better to wait for something the development team is proud of. And It's awesome to see that the pedigree of the voice acting will fit the graphical style - the scenes shown so far look absolutely great!

    13. Tomimt on

      First, it is nice to hear that the internal beta has begun and the second, I do love that voice talent, especially the chat between Ace and iMOM was great.

    14. Overmann on

      Looking and sounding great. I really appreciate you guys pushing on and not giving up. Keep up the good work!

    15. Tom Lee on

      I love this new update and its great to hear from John and Ellen again, they seem like such fun people to work with. Humour is exactly what I'd expect from a Two Guys game. Keep up with the great work all of you!

    16. Johnny W on

      Looking far better than I ever expected. I hope you guys manage to make it to the finish line!

    17. Two Guys From Andromeda Creator on

      @Porcupine you are correct. We wanted to make their voices sound a little more robotic.

    18. Porcupine on

      I'm wondering whether I'm hearing a hint of Auto-tune in there...

    19. Two Guys From Andromeda Creator on

      @Mark we are for sure planning on physical rewards. Honestly, I'm rewarding to get the boxes and boxes of stuff out of my house lol.

    20. Two Guys From Andromeda Creator on

      @Aurelien we will open up to backers for beta once we go through a few first phases of internal beta testing

    21. Aurelien VANDOORINE on

      Good to see progress. I'm just curious on the beta thing. I was a backer at the beta level and have not received anything to actually beta test ?

      I bet the game will come out eventually but I can't imagine the physical rewards are possible.
