Check out Elite: Dangerous, it is a game in development by the Cambridge based Frontier Developments, who have just raised over £1.5 ($2.45) million through the crowd funding site Kickstarter! This means that the game is now well on its way to being released, which is great news for all of those fans who first played the original version of Elite on their BBC Micro and Acorn Electron computers in the mid 1980’s!
According to the Elite Frontier website, this is what the game is all about;
Our galaxy. It’s 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.
We are just waiting for more news on release and availability of this game.
