    Decaffeinated Jedi got a reaction from BluScreen_Jason in Space Quest Historian Podcast - The Official Thread   
    I've had similar thoughts about the viability of an episodic SpaceVenture. Are there really enough people out there who haven't already pledged to the SpaceVenture Kickstarter -- backers are essentially receiving "free" copies of the game -- who would be interested enough in the project to purchase half a game, thereby funding the second half?

    I imagine it would require the first half of the game to get amazing reviews and attract a huge audience. Of course, splitting the game is likely to impact its quality (since, presumably, it wasn't designed from the ground up with a clear Part 1/Part 2 delineation in mind), which could generate negative reviews, damage sales, and decrease the likelihood of Part 2 getting the funding it needs.
     
    Of course, this is all uninformed speculation on my part about something we have no real reason to believe is actually going to happen. I've never gone wrong before placing my faith in Mark and Scott.

    Actually, Gary can only record as fast as his fax machine prints out his script. So we're OK there.

    How can he possibly think that this behaviour achieves ANYTHING? He must be talented though. I find it difficult enough coming up with 3-minute story lines for an out of touch maniacal games CEO. He lives it.

    How would we know which questions to ask our favorite adventure game designers if "Guy Who Demands That Certain Questions Be Asked" didn't prompt us occasionally?

    Someone ask Josho what he had for breakfast this morning! Ask him why he didn't have yogurt! Ask him what he has against yogurt! Ask him who gave him yogurt when he was down and out on the streets of Oakhurst!

    This sounds like a Toleman-esque approach to video game creation. I like it.

    Okay, I admit it. While writing Pledge Quest, I ripped several letters -- and, on a few occasions, entire words -- from Infocom text adventures. ;)

    I'll echo Frede's sentiments (although there are days when I'd probably give SQ3 the edge over SQ5).

    I'd forgive Activision for everything if they released iPad ports of the Space Quest series.
     
    Or, better still, turned over the rights to Guys from Andromeda LLC so they could do it.

    If this follows Paul's usual modus operandi, I predict a public apology to Mark, Scott, Chris, and the fan community sometime within the next 12 hours.
