Elite: Dangerous currently over on Kickstarter trying to raise £1.25 million to develop their new installment of a long series of epic space games, starting with “Elite” one of the most successful games of the 1980s, which I have found memories playing around my friends house a BBC Micro computer.
The latest instalment definitely has enhanced graphics compared to the 1908s version, and also builds on the same gameplay style as the original. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Elite: Dangerous project and see it in action.
The UK Kickstarter campaign works a little different to the US Kickstarter projects, and requires you enter your credit card details to pledge, but the game developers have now added a PayPal option to help things along in the last 2 weeks.
“We have had many requests for PayPal pledging and donation,” said boss and Elite co-creator David Braben. “We’re delighted to act based on that feedback from our enthusiastic community, and very thankful for their positivity and efforts in helping to get this game made.”
“Our galaxy. Its an awe inspiring, beautiful, vast place; with billions of star systems, planets, moons and asteroid fields just waiting to be explored, and exploited. The triumverate superpowers of the Empire, Federation and Independents dominate their core system volumes and constantly skirmish to outmaneouver one another on their frontiers. Outside their influence, in the vast majority of the galaxy, anarchy reigns supreme and spectacular discoveries await the bold.”
The Elite: Dangerous project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
