TOPIC: Cosmic Frontier: Override is on Kickstarter

Cosmic Frontier: Override is on Kickstarter 3 weeks, 1 day ago #4558

www.kickstarter.com/projects/cosmicfront...ic-frontier-override

From the creators of Escape Velocity and Escape Velocity: Override (minus the engine designer Matt Burch) we (potentially) have a new game!

The concept is kind of neat. Since Ambrosia closed its doors, EV and EVO copyrights have reverted to their creators, who in this case is the developers and engine designer Matt Burch. Matt's fine with the project as long as it gets a new name (hence the new name), and it will have a new cross-platform engine (Kestrel) that will be open sourced once this first game is released.

The goal is to make the game compatible with the original plugins (scenarios, ships, stations, weapons, etc), plus have a game modding layer, plus a core gameplay modding layer, plus the engine itself.

The Kickstarter currently has 12 days left to get from £28,107.05 to £36,500 raised. They're doing an "all or nothing" which means this may not go any further if they don't get the rest of their backing. Which would be a shame.

I for one would love to see this bit of history revived; EV was one of my first forays into serious game modding.
