Space Quest 7

Space Quest 7, so I can die happy please.

The Space Quest series has to be up for grabs, Sierra scraped it back in 1997, and now that they don't even have thier own name anymore, because they're part of the Activision/Blizzard group now, you know they don't have any plans to ever make a new one.

  • BTTF is stupid easy. Too stupid easy. Insultingly stupid easy. And they didn't say it would be beforehand. I don't want people like that anywhere near my beloved Space Quest. Space Quest was hard and proud of it. And was strewn with death sequences which were all a part of the charm. I'd rather let it stay dead. It had a good run. I wouldn't mind if Space Quest came back one day, but definitely not under the Telltale banner.

  • Tell tale would have to be crazy to pass up space quest.
    It was as popular as monkey island and we all know how well that game does.
    The fans are just dying for a remake.
    A remake of ringworld would be really great too actually.
    that game is under-rated.
    Play it if you haven't already.
    It's a lot like space quest.

    Now, police quest on the other hand would be a terrible idea to remake.
    With what's going on these days with the end prohibition movements, police brutality, and the 40,000+ people killed because of the DEA in Mexico this year alone..
    you would be met with a boycott like you've never seen before if you were to make anything pro police at this moment.
    Many of the people who played these games as kids grew up to hold the police in contempt so you would definitely lose out in sales.
    It's not the 80's anymore and you can't get away with glorifying police officers towards young people anymore. Thank god.
    Personally, I won't even let shows like CSI go a day without a thousand emails about how they are labeling the mentally ill as monsters while in reality they are usually the victims.
    This is not an area tell tale wants to get into in this day and age, because these things are currently being struck down as unconstitutional and a U.N. task force has even been formed to stop this kind of excessive punishment.
    It would just be a disaster I don't want to see happen to the adventure game genre because they already have enough trouble as it is.
    Hate to get off-topic,
    but anyways
    I really hope that they do make a space quest remake.
    I miss the witty dialogue.

  • I think they're waiting to see how King's Quest does first. I think we all are.

  • I wish Space Quest 7 lived to see the light of day, I truly miss Roger Wilco and his antics.

  • I agree, space quest was one of the best sets of games around anhd if telltale did their own take on it I'd die a happy man :)

    So... did you just agree with your own post you left here a year ago? :confused:

  • I'm guessing he didn't even look at who posted it. Newbies tend to overlook stuff like that. Along with post dates.

  • Well I guess it's timely that the thread was bumped. With the whole SpaceVenture kickstarter thing. It's not quite Space Quest 7 but definitely the next best thing. It also may not be Telltale, but I'm just looking forward to the game!

  • Indeed, if you have any love for Space Quest, fund this. It's just as good.

  • I always thought Space Quest would be a better fit for Telltale than King's Quest. If the new KQ game, as well as this new wave of Adventure games launched by Kickstarter, is a success then I'm sure Activision will let someone have a go a rebooting SQ.

    Edit: Screw Space Quest! That SpaceVenture thing looks great!
