Kickerstarters and old Adventure games: has anyone pledged?

posted by doom saber on - last edited - Viewed by 749 users

I noticed that there has been a frequent spike in Adventure games Kickerstarter projects recently; from games to the Leisure Suit Larry remakes to the Broken Sword sequel, almost every non Lucasarts game you can think of is getting a remake or a spiritual/direct sequel. With that said, has anyone pledged for an adventure game Kickerstarter project?

I pledged $250 for the Broken Sword game. I wanted to pledge for the Larry games, but I missed the deadline. Even though the Kickerstarter has ended for the Broken Sword game, it appears that one can still donate or edit their donations through the revolution game - I am tempted to donate 8 more dollars to get the Order of the Goat membership despite having no idea what the membership is exactly for.

    I'd consider Double Fine Adventure to be a "spiritual sequel" to LucasArts adventures.

    I'm in at $30 for Double Fine Adventure and $15 for Tex Murphy, and that's it for adventure Kickstarters.

  • I've backed:

    Double Fine Adventure
    Jane Jensen/Pinkerton Road Studio
    Leisure Suit Larry
    Tex Murphy
    Broken Sword

    I also wanted to back the Two Guys SpaceVenture but I needed to save money at the time and since then I've not been in a position of both being able to afford it and remembering to look into backing via Paypal. It may yet happen when I have a spare £10 odd and I remember that I can still back via Paypal. Though to be honest, I've not been particularly enamoured with their project anyway so I may just let it pass me by without much worry.

    I've backed SpaceVenture, Double Fine Adventure, Leisure Suit Larry HD, Tex Murphy Project Fedora, Pinkerton Road, Quest for Infamy, Broken Sword 5, and the non-successful Hexit, Sam Suede, and Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Mysteries. I also backed Dominique Pamplemousse on Indiegogo.

    Hey! High-five, someone else actually backed that with me!

  • I'm at $100 for both DF Adventure and SpaceVenture. Wish I could have spent more on SpaceVenture to get the T-Shirt and a couple other extras, but I'll live. Besides, you can still pledge more on SpaceVenture even though the Kickstarter is over. Maybe I'll have more money later on.

    I backed $30 on DFA (really wish I could have gave $100 for all those goodies, but I was broke at the time). Unfortunately, I'm too picky and cautious with my money, so I haven't backed any other adventure games, though I did find SpaceVenture to be tempting. I may still back that through Paypal in the future.

    Being able to donate after the Kickstarters has ended sounds similar to what is Revolution is doing with Broken Sword. I wonder if one can donate more to SpaceVenture or Larry through their websites even though the kickerstarters are over.

    I meant spiritual sequels in the sense that SpaceVenture appears to be a Space Quest game without the license and Hero-U appears to be in the same universe as QFG.

    I am thinking that Double Fine Adventures would be an all new IP despite that it would be made by former Lucas Arts employees.

    Why yes, you can for SpaceVenture and Larry

    And for Leisure Suit Larry HD, you can still donate via Paypal here.

    :) It definitely had an interesting plot premise... the concept art was a bit iffy though.. same with Sam Suede. It would have been interesting to see what they came up with if both projects were allowed to go past the concept stage though.
