Jan. 1st Update: It's 2014, Happy New Year!

17 likes

As the title states, it's January 1st, 2014! Happy new year everyone! I cannot tell you how excited I am about 2014 and what this year holds! SpaceVenture gets closer and closer as each day unfolds! As you can imagine, the last couple of weeks have been a mixture of getting things done on the project, but also a lot of time spent for all of us jumping around from place to place spending time with family and friends, so I don't have a ton of new stuff to report. Although more artwork got polished and some more programming completed.

How about a look back at what you've seen and maybe haven't seen so far? 

SOME OF THE ARTWORK FROM THE GAME

Here is some of the artwork from the game. Most of this you've seen, but a couple of pieces you probably haven't seen. ;)

EPISODE 6 OF THE NEW BI-WEEKLY PODCAST BY THE SPACE QUEST HISTORIAN

The Historian wishes you a merry whatever with this special holiday special of the podcast, featuring very special appearances from Vohaul Strikes Back team leader, Frederik Olsen; the proprietor and curator of SierraChest.com, Rudy Marchant; and a special mention from everyone’s favorite corporate weasel, Peter Toleman! The topic is the many easter eggs that lurk within the Space Quest series, and, boy, you’ll never need to check a wiki again after listening to this thing. Also, we take a deep, hard and incredibly long-winded look (and listen) at the Format Countdown — the Historian’s favorite piece of music ever. Happy whatever, people!

      Great update summarizing 2013. Have a great 2014!!!

      @Eric L Beyer: Mark is notorious for not wanting to show too much artwork. I have it on good authority that the Space Pope broke at least one arm trying to get Mark to release this many screens ;)

      As for the update, it's still looking good, guys! I still have complete faith in you and I'm glad to see that the release of game is getting closer...

    3. Creator Marcos Santacruz on January 5, 2014

      take your time to make this game awesome! I grew up on Space Quest and want to cry happy tears when its released & I'm sure you won't let us down.

    4. Creator Eric L Beyer on January 4, 2014

      Not to be a downer, but it's not lost on me that we are coming up on one year beyond the original estimated delivery date of Feb 2013. I was hoping for more than a few screenshots in this update.

    5. Creator Brian Devins on January 2, 2014

      The art looks fantastic!

    6. Creator Venron on January 2, 2014

      It just hit me, you guys really need to do a cross over with Space Janitors http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/635272374/space-janitors-webseries-season-3

      Maybe they can make Ace a cameo?

      The game is looking gorgeous by the way!!!!

      Come on SpacePope!!! The proper answer is "When it's done"!!! :-)

      @Journeyman if you haven't already read the below update, it might help. But as of now, no estimated release date. We want to be 99% sure this time before announcing another one. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spaceventure/two-guys-spaceventure-by-the-creators-of-space-que/posts/631639

    11. Creator _Journeyman_ on January 1, 2014

      Sorry if you said it in an earlier post, but can we have an estimated release date?

    12. Creator H. Elwood Gilliland III on January 1, 2014

      Art looks great!

    13. Creator Two Guys From Andromeda on January 1, 2014

      @Donnicton nope! We are working hard to make sure no matter how you do things, not to mention what order you do them in, you can still complete the game one way or the other.

    14. Creator Donnicton on January 1, 2014

      Nice update! I do have a question that has been crossing my mind though - this game won't have that "dead man walking" mechanic like King's Quest and other Sierra adventures did in their day where if you didn't pick up some obscure item three hours prior, you can't complete the game?

    15. Creator Palindrome Bob-XSF-I'm in AGL589-BG5.22 on January 1, 2014

      Totally LOVE Rooter on the hubcap of the vehicle in the WIP cutscene. Also, I believe I saw an UI and an inventory screen in those pictures. :-) In short: thanks for another nice update.

      Fantastic update. I *LOVE* the artwork! I especially love the photos of all you guys (and the Coles). And I'm especially delighted to see that you've given Ace a turboshaft. Every hero needs one!

    17. Creator William on January 1, 2014

      Awesome! Nice update!
