    The 27th is the next Hangout, unless you're in Denmark, in which case it's on the VNth.

    The "Cedric Effect" -- now there's a whole new phenomenon (well, not really) to describe an innate feeling of disgusted irritation.
     
    Speaking of which, behold ... CyberCedric!
     

     
    And why? Well ...

    @TorbenFrost The fact that #CyberCedric isn't trending right now is incontrovertible proof that there's no justice in this world.

    This is my first time playing the CD-ROM version of KQ5. My only other experiences with the game involved the 16-color disk version, so this is my first exposure to the "full Cedric effect." ;)

    One of my favorite aspects of Telltale's Tales of Monkey Island series was the introduction of Morgan LeFlay as a Guybrush Threepwood mega-fan. That seems like a concept ripe for ripping off in a Space Quest fan game.

    Pledge Quest 2 was amazing guys! Great job making it fun to play with so much humor. The artwork and music was awesome as well!*SPOILER ALERT* Of course I gotta admit, I got some chills watching the Two Guys plan SQ1 in the game!! Again, really good work! :)

    Hey, folks!
     
    There's a new addition to the Pledge Quest website. You can now take a behind-the-scenes peek at Akril's concept art for Pledge Quest I and Pledge Quest II. Here's a sample:
     


    On a personal note, that's probably my favorite piece of concept art from the series. When it arrived in my inbox a few months ago, it was my first indication of what Pledge Quest II's cutscenes would look like. Needless to say, I was blown away by Akril's work -- even in sketch form.
     
    Anyway, enjoy! Spread the word! Pledge some buckazoids to the SpaceVenture!

    There goes my plan to hand out the games to people I know based on how much I like them. "You're my oldest and dearest friend; enjoy this copy of Space Quest 3 -- on me!"
     
    "Oh, you? Yeah, I guess you're okay. Here, take this copy of Space Quest 2 and leave me alone." ;)

    I agree completely about Akril's animation on Vohaul; it's one of my favorite things about Pledge Quest II. I especially like the part near the end when he leaps out of the

    Been out of touch this weekend down in rural Alabama (man the internet there is poop!), Already re-tweeted and I'll give this a big mention in the news section of my podcast this week! Hopefully a few more of my listeners will pitch in.

    While I do take commissions (well, technically I've only taken one so far), I'm still willing to make exceptions for members of relatively small fandoms that I'm also part of (it depends what sort of art/animation I'm being asked to make). 

    I try not to quit any project I get involved with without a very good reason, though I might get slowed down because of other commitments. I had a lot of stuff going on during the development of PQ2, which really dragged out the whole thing. (Pledge Quest II was 3 months in the making, but it's barely a third as large as Adventure: The Inside Job, which took me about 6 months to make.) 
    Speaking of art, I've got a few pieces of PQ2 concept art I need to upload once I get back to my place.
     
    EDIT: And I'm sorry I forgot to bring it up when I first posted this message, but that story about your daughter was adorable, s_d. Thank you for sharing it. (Also, thanks to everyone who's spreading the news about the game!)

    Way awesome, Akril!
     
    I'm so impressed with you two (and no, you don't have to go being modest and crediting Jess, as usual! I already gave him kudos via PM, so there :P ).
     
    Funny story; I really don't play games in front of my toddler for a number of reasons (being not even 3yrs old, we've pretty much completely eschewed violent imagery in front of her, for the time being), but I felt I was under a time crunch for Linux, and wanted to play through PQII thoroughly for testing. So, she crawls out of the beanbag chair and hops up on the couch next to me, staring intently at the game... this time I let her watch.
     
    It was pretty funny hearing her commentary along with the game (for example, nearly every time I brought up the inventory, she'd ask "Where is the girl? Where did she go, Papa? I can't see her.", etc., ad infinium). I finally began positioning Bea to the left of the inventory before raising it, every time. She remarked about the "funny cat" because of the spoiler on his face, and how silly it was that he was spoiler on top of spoiler! At one point she asked frankly whether or not Bea was learning to pee in the toilet like a big girl, in an unexpected reflection of what is important in her little world at present. :) The biggest surprise was when I replied that Bea was going to travel spoiler spoil... and had zero questions back, as if doing so made all the sense in the world.
     
    The crux is that PQII was her first adventure game, from beginning to end, and she loved it. Especially all the fish jokes. ;)

    There's an updated version (1.1) posted at PledgeQuest.Net that fixes a small bug discovered by pcj. If anyone comes across any other problems, just let us know.
     

    Thanks! For now, we're still recuperating from this project. If only we knew somebody with a time machine, maybe she could tell us what the future holds...

    PQ 2 was alot of fun! The storyline actually reminds me of an idea for a fanfic I had many many years ago (1999!) that involved Sludge Vohaul using a time machine to erase the SQ series and have it renamed "Vohaul's Conquest" and a friend and I being tasked to set things right. And I also at one point had an idea for a time travel story that involved a time traveling toilet...so great minds do indeed think alike! :D
     
    If y'all ever need any ideas for PQ3 (or even another beta tester!) hit me up sometime! :D
