  1. That we're aware of. But we don't follow Roger's life from infancy. So...
  2. Out of curiosity - is English your native speaking language? I ask because - back when Sierra changed to point and click - I actually wrote them a strongly worded letter about how disappointed I was. How Sierra games had helped me learn to type and type fast! And how just clicking on a screen to pick up items or interact with an item rather than trying to figure it out made it way too easy! Then, the age of the internet became a thing... and suddenly, I realized, I was thinking of it for my own selfish point of view. There were a ton of people, who played Sierra games, where English was not their native language, and they were struggling with how to phrase things in English that the game understood. So I got a new appreciation for the ol' point and click, though for my own preference, I still do prefer the typing interface.
  3. Man, some serious necroposting happening - but these forums have been so quiet - I, personally, don't mind! Nice to see some conversation happening. So, like you - I didn't overly enjoy SQ6 (there were certainly parts I thought were hilarious, yes - like when Roger's walking around Windows 3.0/3.1/whatever) - but over all, it felt like Space Quest to me (the humor, the writing, etc) - I just didn't enjoy the art animation style. Which is weird, I know, when we consider AGI/SCI art - but the way Roger's drawn and such, looks very much like a 6th grade kid's animation project. The big legs, clunky boots, etc. But then, the background art in sharp contrast was stunning. It made for a weird mix. Example: Similarly - there is a series of books called Dragonlance which are some of my favorites. They made an animated cartoon out of it. The animated cartoon portion was excellent. But then the dragons in it were CGI, and literally rip you right out of the cartoon, because of the odd contrast. Cartoon art: And then the CGI mixed with it...
  4. May the 4th (and the Mop) Be With You. Always.
  5. Pleasure! Hoping that this June date holds true... but of course with the current state of the world... who knows. But ideally, since they pretty much "work from home" anyway (and don't actually have to go into an office like the old school Sierra days) - hopefully, June of this year - this game will finally see the light of day. It's the last remaining Kickstarter I ever backed that I've been waiting for. <3

  7. With more and more people being asked to remain inside with the current state of things... I figured I'd mention it here specifically, I do a web series using the Neverwinter Nights game engine. I wrote the story, filmed the series, edited the voices, did the whole bit - and had my friends, and even some professionals (Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry, Greg Johnson creator of Toejam and Earl, Lindsay Archer, professional artist and good friend) - all lend voices to the series. I originally started it in 2004 (late, so closer to 2005) and "finished" it in 2013. It ran 65 episodes. Just a few years ago, I got it in my head to go back and refilm the series (because originally it was 800x600, then 1024x768, then who knows what - but all of it using a free editor so the quality really suffered). Now I am redoing it all - in 1080p (1920x1080) - with all new footage, cleaning up the audio where I can, etc. It's been wonderful revisiting this series. I am currently (as of Saturday evening) on Episode 49 out of 65. Seems like a good time, for anyone who may have time on their hands to catch up on the series. And please, by all means, if you enjoyed any of it - please share. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising, because it's coming from a trusted source, rather than a paid source. Much love, Tawmis. Play list on Youtube (starting from Episode 01) - begins here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wr4-u9-zw0&list=PLbRG7dzFI-u3EJd0usasgDrrFO3mZ1lOZ&index=1 (Don't forget to click the gear icon to set it to 1080p, because it typically defaults to 720p on Youtube) If you're more the "I have a ton of bandwidth and want to push the limits of your website and download these" type of person, you can do that too: http://neverendingnights.com/nenvideos/all-hq-episodes
  8. I admit, Pope shutting down his Facebook and Twitter not to long ago, didn't send the best feeling in the world. Felt like someone who knows it's not working out. But at the same time, could just be someone who is tired of hearing "When is it coming out?" I am more than sure he wants this off his shoulders just as much as everyone else wants a copy of it. What probably started out as a fun idea has become a massive burden. As for health, if you follow Scott Murphy on Twitter, he posts frequent updates about his health issues.
  9. Well, since the Original Post was in 2016... pretty sure the Kickstarter is already done.
  10. Roger may well be a virgin; but I don't think that screenshot would indicate either way. The "ladies your mom told you about" is said more in humor. As for having a previous relationship, that's never been said, to my memory.
