Garry M. Gaber, who worked on LucasArts Star Wars titles of varying critical acclaim (including Rebel Assault II, Shadows of the Empire, Jedi Knight, Force Commander and the Galactic Battlegrounds series
) has launched a kickstarter campaign for a new Space Combat Simulator 'Starlight Express
Inception' for PC and... Playstation Vita?
You know the deal, here's the Kickstarter page
- $150,000 needed (~$40,000 at the time of writing).
Of special interest is this:
Additionally, for this game we are reaching out to the Wing Commander, X-wing vs. TIE and Galactic Battlegrounds modding communities to give them a chance to contribute to a commercial product.
So, not only a chance to fund, but also a chance for modders to work on the game.
Good luck, maybe this will also inspire Larry Holland, who is the person most associated with the Star Wars Space Combat Simulator legacy.Edit:
If you don't want to wade through the screeds of text on the Kickstarter page, Gaming Union have just posted this interview
with Garry M. Gaber regarding the game.Update:
The game just squeezed over the funding goal
, so we can expect a new space combat simulator to come out sometime next year(?).
