Kickerstarters and old Adventure games: has anyone pledged?

posted by doom saber on - last edited - Viewed by 1.1K 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.

    That's it. I would have backed Quest for Infamy if I had any cash left at the time. I also backed Ken Allen's Music Kickstarter: Under The Half Dome, which I and a few other musicians in the Sierra community (including James Mulvale from Quest For Infamy) are now going to be performing on.

    Wow, he managed to find a legal provision that allows him to make updated versions of his original Sierra songs! Definitely backed by me! The Space Quest music was a huge inspiration for me to get involved in composing. :D
  • The only adventure game I've backed since my first post in this thread (which was around the time of the Broken Sword Kickstarter) is Dreamfall Chapters.

    This is my new favorite to watch, Dreamfall Chapters, but I also funded Project Eternity. I am really hoping Dreamfall makes it, loved that series since the Longest Journey and would like to see the rest of the story.
  • In case you missed it, the guy himself posted here.

    I moved his post over to the general Kickstarter thread (since this one's more for adventure games people have backed and the other one's more of a free-for-all) if you wanna check it out, maybe talk to him...
  • I happily backed many of the same ones several of you did.

    It looks like, out of the biggies, Leisure Suit Larry Reloaded is going to be the first to be released. I am very much looking forward to this one.

    Also backed the fun-looking and beautiful Mage's Initiation recently... it's the game that I wish Hero-U had been, though I am going into Hero-U (which I also backed) with an open mind.
  • The thing about all these games is that, by the time they come out, I'll have forgotten all about them, so I'll be able to go into them with a fairly open mind. Awesome how that works out.

    Well they certainly made their goal, right now they are trying to reach 1.5 million, so they can include previously sidelined features. Since they have 1.41 million now, and will allow PayPal donations after today, I figure they've got a good shot.

    I can't say I've been very active supporting all the projects. Totally missed out on a few projects. Other than Dreamfall, there Quest for Infamy & Spaceventure.

    Also part of another game called Mage's Initiation.
  • 50 dollars on Dreamfall!
