Yo, Freelancer fans, Freespace fans, good Star Wars game fans and other assorted SPACE fans! Check this fucker out http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitilus/al-skyjacker.
I've been keeping half an eye on the many space 'em ups on Kickstarter because this genre kicks (or 'kicked') ass. Most of them have looked terrible, but this one looks awesome and seems like it's being made by a competent team. Currently it only has 2200 backers which is ridiculous considering how many people (rightly) bang on about bringing this genre back.
It's not looking hopeful, because it only has 2 weeks to go and isn't even half way to it's target yet. But they're only after $200k, so if a small section of the media would like to pull their heads out of Peter Molyneux's metaphorical ass for 2 minutes and give some coverage to an actual game, it's still possible that it could be turned around in time. $15 pledge gets the game. Ok, I'm all shilled out, thank you.
