What’s up party people and welcome to the show that almost didn’t happen.

So before Rick abandoned (more like escaped) us for Ryan (of the O’Leary variety) and flew all the way to New York, he virtually sat down with Bryce to record a review for his newly purchased Nexus 7. Bryce was there mostly because Rick wanted the company and because he enjoys talking to someone other than himself from time to time.

In all seriousness, Rick went to New York to help Ryan out with his upcoming film, The Backseat, and left the keys to the ever responsible Mike and the super dependable Bryce. Unfortunately, neither characteristic shined through this week because Mike and Bryce are the opposite of responsible and dependable. Actually, that is only half true since Mike was indeed responsible (watching the kids), but Bryce of course wasn’t dependable (couldn’t coordinate time to record). Needless to say, episode 074 of SSWL will consist solely of Rick’s Nexus 7 review. Luckily, the boys (minus Mike) rambled on for around 40 minutes, saving us from the embarrassment of not delivering a show for all of our loyal listeners. Without further ado, please enjoy this shortened (we like to call it “special”) edition of SSWL.

I am not sure I can express, in words, how happy I am over this news. As anyone who listens to our podcast knows, I love Monkey Island as much as Rick loves him some Joss Whedon (Hi Rick!). With that said, Ron Gilbert created Monkey Island and Tim Schafer worked on the game, so you can imagine my delight upon hearing (well, reading) something like this. My eyes came across this late last night and I thought to myself that I probably should get some sleep just to be sure I am not hallucinating. Well, I woke up to find out that not only was I not hallucinating, but the project had come one step closer to fruition.

For those who are not aware, Tim Schafer of Double Fine announced a Kickstarter project yesterday where he asked for donations to fund a classic point-and-click style adventure, currently untitled and only known as “Double Fine Adventure.” As the video above details, Schafer and company requested donations of $300,000 towards the game development and an additional $100,000 for an accompanying documentary about the making of the game for a grand total of $400,000. Well, they not only reached their goal in a mere eight plus hours, but they also shattered Kickstarter records for most backers and funds raised in a 24 hour period. As I am writing this, the project has 26,000 backers and a total of $1,001,988 raised.

All additional money will continue to be put towards the game and documentary, thus making both even better with the extra financial support. As far as I’m concerned, we should keep supporting this and really stick it to all those publishers who have refused to back graphic adventures, citing that the genre was dead.

Lastly, for anyone who was wondering, I did not actually have a wet dream (or so I claim), but including it did make the title of this post far more interesting…or disgusting. You decide.
