How  Space Quest 's creative duo buried the hatchet after 20 years apart

How Space Quest's creative duo buried the hatchet after 20 years apart Exclusive

June 1, 2012 | By Staff

Twenty years ago, game development duo Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, having shipped four games in Sierra On-Line's Space Quest series, parted ways after a falling out. For many graphical adventure game fans, it was a premature ending to a partnership that should have told many more stories.

Recently, Murphy and Crowe -- affectionately known by their fans as The Two Guys From Andromeda -- set aside their differences and launched a Kickstarter campaign to make a brand new adventure game together.

"I realized years ago it was our partnership that made these games great, and it's something I haven't experienced in the last 15, 20 years since I've been away from Sierra," Crowe tells Gamasutra in our exclusive interview.

"I realized how much I missed that… we’ve come full circle back to our original way of working together.”

The duo were gracious enough to describe to us the high pressure environment at Sierra in the early 90s that led to their split, admitting that they were "younger and less mature" then.

"Looking back, I realize I was a dick," Murphy tells us, laughing.

More on the reunion -- and what's next for the only two Andromedans on Earth -- is in today's Gamasutra cover story.
