Jesus EFFING CHRIST!!!!

All us veteran gamers out there might be getting our wish come true.

David Braben is on Kickstarter trying to get Elite 4 made!!!!

This is not some petty start up company but the mightest of gaming mighty creating what has to be one of the longest awaited sequels of ALL GAMING HISTORY.

The man who could fit 256,000 individual planets into 32K of memory for you to travel around!!!! This man was a genius.

Here's the kickstarter page, go and have a look but as Fry once said,



If you're old enough to remember the original, share a candle with me and partake of your stories of entering Thargoid space, or your plans of piracy dominance by taking down lone Pythons and Adders travelling peacefully though space, or molesting a space station till it spits Vipers after you. Or how about finding the planet Arse after sstar jumping many locations.

Possibly the most exciting gaming news in history as far as I'm concerned.

...with a horrible pitch and a ridiculous asking price.

Indeed, the company that brought you Kinectimals and Kinect Disneyland Adventures.

It'll never get made.
Kickstarter UK's payment options are problematic and off-putting to those in the americas. More importantly, his pitch is rubbish and the latest video update features very little gameplay even though a working build is running on the computers behind him.
