Peter Ostrum should return in a new Chocolate Factory movie where Charlie Bucket is the 60 year old owner planning to pass his Chocolate Factory to a lucky child as Willy Wonka had done for him all those years ago. Obviously it wouldn't be based on any existing story, just a new continuation of the original without being a remake.

@  Bass X0 : (29 August 2016 - 01:30 PM)

Duckman is indeed better than Beast Wars.

@  Telly : (29 August 2016 - 01:12 PM)

well i went to dollar general looking for the beast wars dvd. didnt find them. but i found something BETTER: seasons 1 and 2 of duckman!!! and for only $2.95!

Some regional variations actually have some cool headdress-type things instead of the black hood.

Most google ads base their content on sites you've visited - so you're probably visiting a lot of news sites.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 August 2016 - 11:52 AM)

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

So I was making out with this random old homeless guy, and he stops and is all like "Why are you making out with me?" and I'm just like "Shut up, Homeless Guy."

You know, what I hate about Civil War II the most is that it's not even trying to break out of the Minority Report shaped hole it's in.

This might be old news to some, but its something I've only recently run into. Apparently, there are a number of Kickstarter projects out there for adventure games.

First off, Tim Schafer & Doublefine's http://www.kickstart...-fine-adventure. Its already gotten full funding, but came short of getting the funds to give us full docuentary footage.

There seems to be an almost completely funding attempt to remake Leisure Suit Larry. Not terribly excited by this, but more power to it.

Gotta go, but here's a link to a thread that cover most of the other project. Also links to a potential project started by the Space Quest 2 Guys from A.

Well the website seems legit enough & couldn't find anything to corraborate this on the web. So, I'm going to just assume you heard wrong. Maybe you'd confusing some other game designers?

I think the Dr. McNinja guys are running a Kickstarter to do a sidescrolling 2D adventure game starring the characters.
I think.

Yeah, I've been buying into Kickstarters at the rate of about 1 per month at the $15 level. So far I've supported Double Fine, Leisure Suit Larry Comes Again, and Wasteland 2.

I like the concept, overall.

Tiny update, but The Two Guys from Andromeda have started a kick starter. Seem to already be off to a good start.

Twas years ago to be sure. While I don't remember the name of the individual, it stands out in my memory because shawn elaborated with "One of the two guys from andromeda". I knew who they were... I helped free them from lime jello, then dumped them in a scummy little software company on some miserable blue backwater world.

Well I recall that a spoof National Enquirer includded in Space Quest 6 declared one of the guys not dead, but it was a spoof.

Also, if one of them really dead, I think somebody would have made a stink by now. I'm more inclined to think you're misremembering something. Maybe involving 2 & 1/2 men, post Sheen's departure?

QUOTE
Hey there, Classic Adventure Gaming fans as well as those relatively new to our worlds. Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, aka ?The Two Guys from Andromeda?, are back together. No, your optic orbs have not been on a bender. You read correctly. After a very brief 20+ year hiatus, we have joined forces once again and are tooling-up to bring you a new Space Adventure, or SpaceVenture?, if you will.

A little older, a little wider (well, Mark at least) and a bit more demented than before (a toss-up on that one), we're both ludicrously psyched to be working together again. Combine that with what has been literally years of pent-up intergalactic pressurized cabin fever to go with it and we have some real wonderful?, uh, ?stuff? to share, incorporating that same style of comedy, wonder and delusion you expect from a Two Guys SpaceVenture?.

You?d be very surprised to know the range of requests we sought out and have been received from supporters. We know we can?t be everything to everyone but we're working hard to find a happy compromise. The only thing we won?t compromise on is your game-play experience (and maybe caloric intake).

?Scott and Mark will have their hands all over this project with final say on everything, including how much cheese and Orat meat goes in the crust. What this means, people, is that no aspect of this game will come into being without the personal, crusty-eyed, occasionally salivating and barely comprehensible approval of The Two Guys from Andromeda. This is YOUR guarantee, for you fans and friends, that everything you are about to see is ultimately the work of The Two Guys.?

It's entirely possible I am misremembering things. Though I doubt it has anything to do with 2 1/2 men. I've never watched that show, and its an older memory than that. Like, right around the time I got the space quest collection set.
