Space Quest developers announce Spaceventure

Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, the creators of the classic Space Quest adventure series, have announced their return to the world of game making with Spaceventure. The veteran developers revealed the project on their Two Guys From Andromeda website, proclaiming, "No, your optic orbs have not been on a bender. You read correctly. After a brief 25+ year hiatus we (Mark and Scott) have joined forces once again and are tooling-up to bring you a new Space Adventure, or SPACEVENTURE, if you will."

Oh, we will. Watch the animated Space Quest heroes pitch the game in their announcement video:

Murphy and Crowe gave up little details about Spaceventure, except to say it is a “whole new sci-fi themed adventure” that will incorporate “that same style of comedy, wonder and excellence you expect from a Two Guys adventure”. Two pieces of concept art were also posted, hinting at a goofy Roger Wilco style:

In a break from recent tradition, the “Two Guys” aren't using Kickstarter to fund their next project (yet). Instead, fans are asked to help spread the word, sign up for the website's newsletter, and register their support on the studio's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

How about it? Will a new adventure game from the creators of Space Quest fetch your hard-earned Buckazoids?
