That's an amazing DeForest-alike. I'd not have guessed it wasn't him.
This is one of the worst Development Hell stories for gamers into sci-fi.
The other TOS voiced adventure games still sell on GOG. They sold for $50 / pop back when $50 was $50. It'd be like an $80 game today.
Screwing up Vulcan Fury was a huge mistake.
It's not like they really had much choice. The company was in dire straits, at a time when the types of games people played was shifting. It was an overly ambitious game (ie Pixar-like 3d animation) that was costing them lots, and when the company was seeing red, there were a lot of other decisions that factored in to them closing the company. Even if they were to have had progressed far enough for them to be able to release it, the market had changed a lot and I sadly don't think it would have sold enough. Point and Click adventure games were among the most expensive types of games to be developing.
I kind of thought that they should make the game as a Kelvin Timeline story. Bring in D.C. Fontana to rewrite the script and have Spock Prime guide the crew through the adventure that he himself went on in the prime reality. Use the original voice clips and animations as flashbacks/Spock's memories. Alas, it is only in my dreams where Nimoy is still around and I have the money to make that happen.
