Creators of Space Quest Series Creating New Space Adventure

If you’re a fan of the old school adventure games, then you’ll pleased to note that the creators of the Space Quest series, Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy, have teamed up again and will be developing a brand new game, which they call a  “SPACEVENTURE™” . Though they have not announced much about it, other than that it’s a space adventure game, they did say that they are accepting resumes for different positions in the game.

For those of you who don’t know, the Space Quest series was developed by Mark and Scott and the first installment was released in October of 1986. The games relied on puns and wacky storylines based on parodying both sci-fi and pop-culture phenomena, making the games a huge success. This new game will mark the first time that Mark and Scott have worked together since Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers.

I’ll admit, I’ve never had the chance to play these games for myself, but after looking at their website, I think I might have to give some of their games a shot. They both seem like 2 genuine, funny guys who just love to make games, and when somebody creates a game as a labor of love, you know you’re going to have something special. I’ll be looking forward to hearing more about this game, that’s for sure!
