Treygreen13: Risks and challenges1. The game you just spent 18 paragraphs describing is Eve Online.
tdpatriots12: Well the way he described multiplayer was more like Star Citizen.But that's raising much the same point as you.
seniorgato: Kickstarters like this annoy me to death. No video, no graphics.Okay, so the original probably didn't have either at 22k, but you want a million bucks, put up a video saying, "I'm going to do _____". By doing that, you, yourself are committing to the project. Without it, it might as well be the Prince of Nigeria who just needs that startup money so they can transfer your Canadian lottery winnings.
grinding_journalist: Treygreen13: Risks and challenges1. The game you just spent 18 paragraphs describing is Eve Online.Or this:[i830.photobucket.com image 250x188]I'll still play that every once in a while. The Star Wars total conversion was one of the best Star Wars games ever made, and it was made by fans.
swaxhog: Pretty much this. I'm a frequent KS supporter but I really hate these retro game reboots* that feed on nostalgic suckers. This one is especially terrible for the reasons you mentioned. JFC, put a little effort into the free million you're asking for.
GavinTheAlmighty: The original "Elite" fitted into around 22K of memory.The original "Elite" fitted into around 22K of memoryIf you want my money, don't do this.
farbekrieg: it is painful to see stuff like this turn to kickstarter, because you know it has been pitched to every publisher and turned down, or approved pending executive overview with notes.On the other hand Im hoping that one of the many many many kickstarters out there (im looking at you wasteland) is successful enough they can rub some choice publisher noses in it.
McGrits: the EVE comment above is almost spot on.Although I thought of it more a multiplayer of this:[assets.getgamesgo.com image 412x412]crossed with this:[nightmaremode.net image 600x830]/pics are not mine
Hardy-r-r: I just sent the link to Curt Shilling. I figure he's good for quite a few pounds
IXI Jim IXI: Great...after 25 years, I can again spend hours crashing into the side of a space station...
Jedekai: IXI Jim IXI: Great...after 25 years, I can again spend hours crashing into the side of a space station...Thanks. I just got a nostalgia-trip of hearing my Tandy 1000's pc speaker fire repeatedly, sounding like a gabber band had started playing an all-night concert inside its case.
