Exclamation Elite: Dangerous

Remember Elite by David Braben? 30 years after the first Elite and he is at it again!
I used to play Frontier: Elite II on my Amiga 500 and spent countless hours moving across the universe trading, pirating, taking missions and otherwise just trying to stay alive.
With no affiliation other than good memories about playing this game, back it on Kickstarter if you would like to revisit the Elite universe.
The Kickstarter is open until 4 Jan so I regret I did not post this earlier.

Elite: Dangerous

I am following the fundraiser closely now...
After seeing the concept art and functional gameplay that the Elite team has put together, it would be such a loss if it all went back down in the drawer.

Keeping a real close eye on it, if it reaches the mark ill pledge without a doubt.

Looks great and has some really nice if not very ambitious ideas behind it.

Excellent! Loved Frontier on my Amiga back in the day, spent hours flying around different systems.

I haven't watched kick starters before, do the last few days accelerate so much like this project?

Its at 1,398,439 with 21 hours to go.... in 2 days since I posted on here they have got 229,177 - that's pretty impressive!
