  1. Frans took the spacequest.net domain back from Guys From Andromeda so the two are no longer affiliated. Frans' site exists back at spacequest.net where he's been working on updating his original design to modern standards. Not all areas are available yet and there doesn't seem to be a link to an archive of the older design available.
  2. What's up with SpaceVenture?

    For some reason I can't find my Kerona Ale coupon or original manuals/reg cards. Stupid stupid stupid younger dumb me.
  3. Ideas for SV Box Design

    Had an idea after posting in the other thread of discussing what you think (or would like) the SV box cover would look like. They've said that it'll be similar in style to Space Quest IV's big box so I'm guessing something like those dimensions. I recently received my Broken Age big box for my Kickstarter reward and it was made to resemble the DOTT box and the LA boxes of old with the border, logo in the bottom center, etc. I wonder will the SV box resemble an old Seirra box? What would you want from it? Something resembling the SQ1 black box? Or maybe one of the "Roger Wilco in..." later SQ boxes? Or a brand new design?
  4. What's up with SpaceVenture?

    They haven't said otherwise. I'm still expecting one. It'll look great next to my SQ1 (spaceship cover), SQ4, and SQ Collection(Vivendi) boxes. I almost bought a replacement Space Quest Collector Series fold top box a while ago but I abstained....my real SQ unicorn is the classic black box, though. It would be awesome if they designed the SpaceVenture box kind of like a Space Quest box. All black with a red and blue logo (maybe a different letterstyle, though). Or even maybe the "Rgoer Wilco in..." style boxes. could say "Ace Hardway in...." instead.
  5. What's up with SpaceVenture?

    Are you not a backer? They released a Kickstarter update about it. A while ago.
  6. So I did some searching for the amazing font used on the first three Space Quest box covers and I found it! FIrst of all I must mention a fantastic variation that Goatmeal created which matches the in-game titles for SQ1 and SQ2 (but which are slightly different from the box, namely the A having a flat upper side instead of a rounded point). http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/624609/space_quest_logo_font He also did a font for the credits text: http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/678735/space_quest_credits After some searching he found a close approximation of the text style but as a thinner font: http://www.identifont.com/find?font=digital+sans&q=Go Turns out the font is part of a larger font family pack called Digital Sans by Elsner+Flake. Unfortunately, they're not free and the whole pack is $350. Nobody happens to own this font family pack do they? lol https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/ef/digital-sans-now/ They're not exactly the same, but "Digital Sans Now ML ExtraBold," "Digital Sans Now ML Black," "Digital Sans Now ML Cond ExtraBold," and "Digital Sans Now ML Cond Black" seem to be the closest variations in the pack! The differences between ML and ML Cond seem to be that ML Cond has a little more height. Besides the 'P' not being quite the same, the 'Q' has differences as well. But it's quite close! Here's an example:
  7. Space Quest title font found! (closest to it anyway)

    Not the one used on the box.
  8. "Space Quest" event seen in the Philippines

    Lol interesting. I wonder how many of the people involved knew that it was a computer game. And a museum.
  9. Hey, guys! Just wanted to share with you the news that a game I've been composing music for for the past while, Mage's Initiation: Reign of the Elements by Himalaya Studios (aka AGD Interactive), makers of Al Emmo and the KQ and QFG2 remakes, is now a project up live on Kickstarter! Mage's Initiation is a classic-style RPG/Adventure game with hi-res graphics. Also, Daniel Stacey wrote and designed it. There are tons of rewards and stretch goals with loads of content and swag. I was surprised at the amount of physical rewards, actually! Take a gander. There's lots of sample content to gawk at as well as some preview tracks from the game. Please check it out and spread the word if it's up your alley. See more at: Mage's Initiation: Reign of the Elements Kickstarter http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=isHYeocsOj8
  10. Himalaya Studios' Mage's Initiation - Kickstarter

    Yesterday I finished the last theme for the game! I'm extremely happy that I've got a full game soundtrack under my belt. Plus, for $70+ backers, you can get access to the beta starting tomorrow! It's nice to get that off my shoulders at last. Now I can focus on other projects...
  11. High Resolution scans of Space Quest background art.

    Dude. If there are high quality scans of the original background art somewhere that would be the gold mine. Sign me up. In other words, I haven't heard of such a thing. There are box scans but that's it. The original paintings do exist but they are rare and only a couple people have one. And none of them are scanned AFAIK.
  12. Cascade Quest announcement

  13. What is wrong with Roger's wrist??

    It doesn't matter what everyone in the world believes if the artist believes differently. Everyone could be wrong. Personally, I believe they're just artistic details that mean nothing. In another shot he had a bruised thumb, scratches, and a band-aid for no reason at all. It's just details.
  14. SCI Companion v3 has been released!

    Some fun with SCI Companion:
  15. There was a time when I thought Dwight would make a good onscreen Roger.
  16. Why is SQ6 (generally) disliked?

    Regarding characters that Roger "already knew" that weren't mentioned before, I don't think he knew them before. I was under the impression that between the introduction cutscene where he was demoted and the point where you start the game and get sent to shore leave on Polysorbate LX, there would have been an indeterminate amount of time (perhaps a couple of months) that allowed Roger to meet and befriend members of his new crew. I don't think we're meant to assume that Roger knew these people before SQ6.
  17. Your SpaceVenture App store submissions go here!

    Aww. The mock microtransaction idea would have been funnier . Why I mentioned the SQ4 hint book.
  18. I'd say if you could get Patrick Warburton, keep him for Cluck Yegger, not the narrator. Though on second thought, having Cluck as the narrator might be a neat idea in itself.
  19. Your SpaceVenture App store submissions go here!

    To clarify, are these for a mock microtransaction system for the game? Like, "pay $0.99 for a hint, or $9.99 for the full walkthrough," or "$1.49 for a new skin for Rooter," or "$29.99 for the Earnon Galaxy DLC Expansion content," or "$4.99 to bypass one ingame puzzle" type of thing? Or just made up apps for the in-game universe?
  20. SCI Companion v3 has been released!

    So great to see this updated, thanks for your very hard work, troflip!
  21. Heh. Seth MacFarlane would be fantastic. He has that similar classic announcer voice and his sarcasm knows no bounds. Getting him would probably be quite difficult, though.
  22. Actually, I heard he blew it, got messed up in drugs again, and lost everything all over again. That was a while ago too now.
  23. Your SpaceVenture App store submissions go here!

    This is great. It could be a nice homage to the SQ4 hintbook!
  24. Indeed. There definitely needs to be sarcasm. Something like Owens' but unique. It probably wouldn't be great to try to carbon copy Owens unless he was really really really really close.
