June 1st quick update! Psst.. A demo is coming soon!
You guys may recall that we'll be posting an update on the 1st and the 16th of each month. I cannot promise they will all be massive updates, or that Scott and Mark will show content every single time, but you'll get some good info from each one :) So here is your June 1st update.
We are in the process of taking a small portion of the game and putting it into a demo for everyone to check out. This demo should arrive in your hands soon! You will get a chance to experience some of the game play of SpaceVenture, without too much spoiler in there. We are trying to produce the demo on the PC and Mac(possibly Linux if time permits).
Mark Crowe has absolutely out done himself on each scene for SpaceVenture. I'm honestly blown away at how cool everything is looking. I will be posting some of this amazing artwork soon. Don't want to spoil everything. You'll also get to see some of this artwork in the upcoming demo!
Scott Murphy has written some hilarious dialog that you'll get to taste test in the upcoming demo as well! We recently brought on Troels Pleimert(also known as the Space Quest Historian) to be Scott's intern and resident coffee bringer.
Chris Pope has been busy pulling the whip out when anyone gets out of line!
Ok, and along with promotions, running the business side of the company, he's writing these updates as well ;)
Ken Allen is still hard at work on the music and SFX for SpaceVenture. Everything for the demo is almost complete on his end as well!
VOTING ON CONCEPT ART AND DEATH SEQUENCES
This is gonna be happening in one of the upcoming updates as well, be on the look out!

CHAT SESSION WITH SCOTT AND MARK
For those of you at a high enough reward level(includes those that chose this instead of GoG credits) to receive access to chat with Scott and Mark will be happy to know that there will be another one scheduled for June 6th. Watch our Twitter/Facebook or kickstarter comments section for an exact time! The chat session will happen at svrewards.com, so make sure you are a high enough backer, and have an account to do this. If you can't log on to svrewards.com, please email pcj AT andromedanpost DOT com. I’m also planning to do a live podcast with Mark and Scott soon. Anyone and everyone can be a part of it!
When will our rewards be shipped?
Answer: As soon as the game is complete, we’ll be shipping rewards out.
My address has changed and I need to update it with you guys. How do I do that?
Answer: Don’t worry about giving us your updated address right now. When we get ready to ship the items, we are gonna request you all to give us your updated address so we will all be in sync. No point in getting that as of now, because some of you may move between now and then.
Which conventions will you guys be at?
Answer: The Two guys Mark Crowe, Scott Murphy, and the SpacePope Chris Pope will all three be at SDCC 2013(San Diego) and possibly GMX 2013(Nashville). We were all hoping to be at PAX Seattle as well, but that may not happen. Chris Pope will be at Ancient City Comicon(Jacksonville) as well.
You guys sure have been going to a lot of conventions. Shouldn’t you be making a game?
Answer: Actually Chris Pope is the one that has been going to conventions, and that has been on his own dime, not the company’s. Mark and Scott have only been to one convention so far and that was GMX 2012. GMX paid for the entire thing.
Do you love us backers?
Answer: We love you more than Orats love chasing Sarien Spider Droids! We love you more than Labion Terror Beasts love Cubix Rubes! We love you more than Fester Blatz loves ear wax! We love you more than Sequel Police love dressing in black! We love you more than... oh you get the picture!
