Kickstarter To Make Theresa Duncan Adventures Playable Free

There is a kickstarter campaign running now to make the three adventure games created by Theresa Duncan (Chop Suey, Smarty, and Zero Zero) available for free online, for a minimum of one year.  These games were pioneers of their time, but they are now obscure, and long out of print.  They targeted young girls in the mid-1990's when the market catered almost exclusively to young boys.  They were story based adventure games and revolve around search and discovery.  They were also well received when they were released.  Chop Suey was named the 1995 CD-ROM of the Year by Entertainment Weekly.

Sadly, Theresa Duncan passed away in 2007, but this Kickstarter aims to make sure that her games continue to be able to be enjoyed by the next generation of children.  If this sounds like a campaign you're interested in, head over to the Theresa Duncan CD-ROMs kickstarter and pick a pledge tier.
