I dunno. I’ve never been able to get into space sims, and it seems seriously overambitious...

This explains it better than I could... or... wait.. it’s me explaining it... oh well, read it anyway!

The game does seem rather ambitious, but the tech demo alone gave me that warm intoxicated feeling that the original Wing Commander did so many years ago, so I WANT THIS TO HAPPEN. Badly.

Welp, they raised like $6.5 million. So that’s awesome, that’s plenty of money to make this thing.

I can’t wait.

I decided to wait and see. I’m a bit Kickstartered out, honestly.
