Project Update: Legends of Adventure is 300% Funded + Second Stretch Goal Unlocked 🔓

Hello, Adventurers!

We're officially 300% funded and have unlocked our second Stretch Goal: a digital copy of the original soundtrack by Castle If free for all Backers. Thank you!

The documentary is getting bigger and better with every additional backer – and we can’t wait to reveal even more exciting surprises over the next few weeks.



And speaking of surprises, we’ve received so many positive comments and kind words about the teaser trailer theme, which Castle If aka Jess Forrest, composed specially for our campaign video. We’ve passed all of those compliments along to her. We can’t wait to see what she does with the full original soundtrack for the doc.

As a special bonus, Jess has released a special music video for the “Legends of Adventure Teaser Theme” on YouTube – a music video featuring some amazing vintage Sierra footage – and Bandcamp.

Watch the music video below:


The song will be available on all major music streaming services later this week!

Backers: Be sure to visit the Legends of Adventure Community page to see -an exclusive "Backer Only" announcement.

Thanks,

The Legends of Adventure Team

I’m so thrilled to see this. I was a beta tester for Sierra Online during my mid-late teens through early 20s. I was credited on everything from Leisure Suit Larry 3 to Gabriel Knight. Some of the most fun I had was on Freddy Pharkus where I was given the chance to write a dozen or so text descriptions. When I was 16, I wrote about ten of the questions to prove you’re an adult in LSL3. Al Lowe made me a little certificate that said “This is to certify Mark is old enough to write this game but not old enough to play it.” It was an amazing group of testers, back when teams were like ten people, a few of which went on to huge things. I’m still proud to see my name in the credits. I always said, back then, this is the future of entertainment and will overtake movies. One of the last games I worked on was Phantasmagoria and you can clearly see Roberta was ahead of her time. Alas, my only interaction with Ken was troubleshooting the “brand new” Roland MT-32 with their games. So thrilled to see how many people were touched by this incredible company. It truly was a special time.

I noticed a posting here about Sierra's magazine called InterAction. We ran the company like a huge fan club and InterAction magazine was how we communicated with our customers. The #1 place to go, to learn about Sierra and its products, is InterAction magazine. Here's a link to all of the magazines (or, at least all of them I have). Enjoy!!! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1aEiBAbcHcniebJBMjYypdsJtSckHTlEM?usp=sharing -Ken Williams

Any guesses what the $375,000 locked goal could possibly be?

For those, like me, who have wondered what happened to "The On-Line Letter" (included in Ken's download of InterAction magazines) after that first issue in June 1981, I discovered a while back a curious bit of text at the bottom of the contents page in the first two issues of the Softline magazine: https://archive.org/details/softline_magazine?sort=-date&tab=collection For example, in the first issue from September 1981: https://archive.org/details/Softline_Magazine_Issue_1.1/page/n1/mode/2up which says the following: "Softline is published on the fifteenth day of every other month by Softalk Publishing Inc., 11021 Magnolia Boulevard, North Hollywood, CA 91601 as a continuation of the On-Line Letter." Certainly the first few issues are very On-Line Systems heavy, in terms of the authors of the articles and the advertising. I love the article about the rafting trip, and the write up about the development of Time Zone. The whole collection is well worth a read.

I've played them all, most recently Colossal Cave in VR. I wish you'd do another BackerBit where you get funding FOR YOUR NEXT VR GAME!! You'd be instantly funded, i'm quite sure! Thanks for your amazing awesome sauce, and all the great childhood (and recent!) memories!

Project Update: Legends of Adventure is 200% Funded, Our Next Stretch Goal, PLUS a New Cast Member

Hello, Adventurers!

It's been exactly one week since we launched the campaign for Legends of Adventure: The Story of Sierra On-Line – and we're officially 200% funded and have unlocked our first stretch goal. Thank you to all of our backers!



Unlocking our first stretch goal means that we'll now be able to expand the scope of the project, cover even more beloved games, and add more voices from the world of games and entertainment.

We're now pushing toward our second stretch goal: a full original soundtrack for the documentary composed by Castle If aka Jess Forrest – made available as a free download for all backers and potentially sold in physical formats as well!

You may not be familiar with Jess' name, but you've likely already heard her work. Her original composition was the backing track heard in the Legends of Adventure teaser trailer.

Jess' work spans many different genres and styles, but we feel that her blend of synthy, retro-futuristic music is a perfect fit for the story we're trying to tell. It will help elevate the documentary to even greater heights!

Backers: Be sure to visit the Legends of Adventure Community page to see our exclusive "Backer Only" announcement about a new cast member!

Thanks,

The Legends of Adventure Team

Hey there! Any chance to make the first screening a little more affordable?! I would love to meet everyone and fly out to the screening when it comes out! I, to this day, still play the King's Quest series every few years. I still can't get enough of it even 30+ years later. It is just so good!
