ELITE sequel on Kickstarter!
  • image

    I just saw on the BBC News page that David Braben has put up a Kickstarter campaign for a new ELITE game! I played this game sooo much when I was growing up... the original (?) space combat/ exploration/ trading game. I nearly passed out from nerd boner!

    I signed up to back it at at a frankly embarassing level... maybe some of you guys with fond memories will too?
  • I never did play it, but I want to know more. Do you have a link?
  • Oops, sorry! here is the kickstarter site, and here is the BBC article with video]. I'm not sure how to embed video using the BBC proprietary player.

    Thanks, this will get me where I need to go to learn more.
  • I played it way back on commodore (128/amiga, i don't remember) it was not an easy game.
  • There's new concept art up on the kickstarter site, and a new video. Drooooool! Here is the video

    I can't seem to get it to embed for some reason.

    Also, some concept art:

  • Another video has been put up, all about the cunning procedural generation techniques used in all the previous games, updated for fancifying this one

    There is a cool demo at 4:40, describing how they could make huge towering clouds when flying through atmospheres of planets like Jupiter.

    This project is nearly 40% funded now, with 49 days to go
  • New dev diary with the first (early) gameplay footage... looks pretty damned impressive already~
