Elite: Dangerous reached it's Kickstarter goal with hours left on the clock. For those who do not know what that means, if it had failed to reach its target goal. Then David Braben would have gotten nothing at all.
Kickstarter is an all or nothing affair, you name a target amount you want to raise and if you reach it, you get to keep it. If you do not, you get nothing. So Elite with 21 hours to go needed about 40,000 to reach its 1.25 million target. In the end it got 1.5 Million.
That means the legendary game from the 1980s is now getting made in an era that can really do it justice.
Welcome back Elite :)
For those who want to follow the project as it gets made now the funding has been secured, here is the Elite Website for you.
This is the third Dev Dairy about Elite, the other 2 are on the website linked too above.
Being an older gamer, I remember when games like Elite where just not 3D enough for todays publishers and got shelved due to lack of funding. Thanks to Kickstarter, all sorts of games are now getting made, even the niche games that disappeared mostly because publishers would not fund them.
It is like the 1980s all over again, a classic era for gamers.
