Probably the first game I joined in on Kickstarter is releasing in December after half a year in beta. This multiplayer space sim offers a huge galaxy to explore and conquer. There was no topic and I wanted to share in case no one has heard about it.
Elite is a very old space sim series that launched its first game in 1984, with its final release in 1995, offering a life sized Milky Way galaxy to explore, each and every solar system along with letting you land on every single planet you could find. With the fourth game rumored to be in development, 15 years later nothing came of it until finally in 2012 David Braben who was one of the original developers launched a Kickstarter to get the fourth game made. 20 years later, the gorgeous fourth game is finally here.
This is all gameplay from the beta. In the first video the players smuggles illegal cargo into a base by completely powering down everything on his ship so he can't be picked up by the popo. Second video is a pretty good intro to the game in general.
