    Default Elite: Dangerous, a legend returns

    Have you guys noticed this yet? I can't really properly tell you how excited I am, as David Braben is totally a childhood hero of mine.

    Elite
    Zarch
    Conqueror
    Frontier

    Maybe that will give some idea about who he is for those too young to remember the days of yore

    Anyway, check this out. He's got a kickstarter up for a new Elite game.

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...lite-dangerous

    He wants to push the boundaries of modern gaming like he did before, and I have every confidence that once again he will create something amazing. I hope you guys agree, and want to help the game happen.

    Man, I can't wait!

    Am I really the only one here who remembers Elite?

    Plenty, I'm sure...probably about as many who remember that Braben was promising an Elite 4 more than a decade ago, and maybe are a bit leery about the likelihood of him finally producing it! Plus I suspect a lot of people are put off by the description of this as a multiplayer game.

    I like the plans to add in multiplayer, but in the pitch he's pretty clear about it being fully playable in single player.

    I don't blame him for wanting to wait for the hardware to develop further before this (which is apparently what happened with Elite 4). But seriously, you don't think he'll deliver a game, and deliver it on time if the funding is a success? I guess we have to disagree. He has a history of delivering quality games, on time and on budget.

    And yes, I do admit I'm a huge fan

    Personally I'm putting in the 30. I'd pay more but I don't have much income at the moment. That will get me the game itself when it comes out, plus a few other benefits. Seems like a pretty good deal.

    I know that a few folks have been discussing it in the Kickstarter thread. =)
