      A few years back I heard AGD cancelled their inteded VGA remake of Space Quest II because someone else was doing it…does anyone know if that is still being worked on?

      Any is anyone affiliated with the Space Quest 7 Fan project…I keep checking their site and see no current news…

      BTW, does anyone know if Phoenix Online Studios got Josh Mandel do the voice of Graham for The Silver Lining?
      that would have been really cool…considering the voices for KQ6 (Robby Benson) and KQ7 were professionals and probably not in their budget

      AGDI cancelled their (then secret) remake of Space Quest 2 because someone else named Kippesoep (I believe that is Dutch for ‘chicken soup’ or something like) was working on it. Kippesoep eventually disappeared into obscurity, I’m not sure if his remake website is even still around anymore.

      yeah I think I remember that..it was a bizarre name, and sounded like one person as opposed to a group using a company name…I wonder if AGDI has any of their project still lying around…I think I’ll send them an email…

      At one time there was a page on the AGDI site showing the few screens that had been completed (there was like only 3 or something). A few sprites and a little bit of scripting had been done. Basically, not really much.

      For the record, Josh was working with KQ9 but parted company with the KQ9 project because of fundamental (ethical?) differences.

      That’s a story I don’t know. I think Josh left while I was still at the company, but I’ve long forgotten why.

      Interesting…

      But it probably wasn’t as upsetting to him as not getting the due credit for SQ6
