  1. A few days ago I stumbled upon a very interesting platformer game called "Schrodinger's cat: Raiders of the Lost Quark"; its intro trailer gives a very LucasArts-ish vibe, reminding of stuff like DOTT or Psychonauts. (This BBCode requires its accompanying plugin to work properly.) This made me think that the themes of quantum physics and cosmology, which are rapidly becoming popular in all sorts of media (books, movies, etc., like R. A. Wilson's "Schrodinger's Cat" trilogy), are still mostly ignored in adventure genre. I believe all this weirdness about Schrodinger's cats, multiple r
  2. HELL YEAH!!! Regarding suggestions: well, the original Insecticide makes use of some sci-fi elements, so perhaps this time you could employ something mystical, with Lovecraftian vibe (this would very well fit in with noir atmosphere)? Maybe with some reference to Freaky Stories (after all, its main characters were a maggot and a cockroach)? (This BBCode requires its accompanying plugin to work properly.)
  3. http://slimyjackpot.com A surreal oldschool adventure game from the team that (almost) brought you "The Carnival of Monkey Island". Another major inspiration for the project was Toonstruck (actually, the starting point for the project was my disappointment with Keith Arem's fruitless Toonstruck 2 campaign). The basic idea of the project is to blend the atmosphere of a classic cartoonish Lucas-style adventure and a storyline in the vein of mind-bending movies, like Mulholland Drive or Donnie Darko.

  4. There are so many websites, Facebook groups and petitions about resurrecting the Freelance Police and absolutely nothing about Plunge Through Space. So I decided... why not start one myself?

  5. Happy New Year everyone! A couple of goodies for you!
  6. I don't think that's absolutely nesessary to get all 50000. The petitions for the Silver Lining and Sam & Max 2 were both successful (the latter one reached its goal in an indirect way), although the former one got only 3024 signatures out of 100000. So I believe that 10000 or about so will be more than enough.
  7. More news: we've reached the point of 3000 signatures!!!
  8. Some more news: we've opened a livejournal community! Everyone is invited to join!
