      I did too, but honestly? I’m waiting to see more than just text and promises before I decide if I’m to keep it. I hate to be harsh, as I’m typically ALWAYS supportive of spacey Kickstarters like this, but the lack of visual information isn’t rubbing me right.

    I’m not sure about the timing here, Chris Roberts project is only halfway, and this kinda garners to the same fans imho. While I was a great fan of Elite, this has to be truly special to get my attention.

    Not even pledged for the same reason. I remember Elite, remember its starting theme, remember the docking nightmare and all the great times I had playing the game, but, as someone pointed out in Kickstarter comments, – 2mil project can’t be made on nostlgia only. No video, no examples of technology, concept art – no homework at all. And I haven’t seen any other decent PC game from Braben and his +200 people company (hell, I haven’t seen ANY PC game from Braben in last 15 or so years).
    So – no. Just no. Unless he showes some real meat, I’m not on this spacebandwagon.

    Braben’s affiliation with the Frontier series won’t be kind to him or his Kickstarter campaign. Like it or not the Frontier fiasco’s have an air of BC3K shittyness. I have decided to support the project but I hope this isn’t just a fancy graphical update of the original Elite. I want to see deep gameplay improvements. The Elite I played back in 1984 is not the Elite I would want to play now. Many space games have come and gone and games like the X-series have really advanced the genre way beyond what the original Elite offered.

      Hey Sean, welcome aboard man. :) And yeah, I can’t blame you on your stance. They really need to show more to foster goodwill, I think.

    If Bell was involved I might consider backing this. But Braben has squandered a lot of goodwill among the Elite fans. Because of the Frontier series but also by shutting down a Bell-supported fanproject : http://www.christianpinder.com/games/

      Hey peschi, welcome! I also didn’t know that! Damn, that doesn’t make Braben look good at allllllll…

Chime In!
