Elite IV - At last, it is arriving...if we want it enough
High time we got our Geek on and gave this project the backing it deserves!
Could some kind moderator move this thread to the "Concepts" part? Is that more suitable?
Here's the concept:
(I don't work for these devs BTW)

Here's the website, and no, I don't work for frontier, I'm a gamer who really wants this - and so do hundreds of thousands of others, so where are you all?

But if some moderator would be kind to move this thread to a more suitable forum that would be lovely?

We're on the Greenlight forums, which has nothing to do with this.

Awesome. Loved the game when I was a teenager (on my BBC Micro). The reboot is going to be fantastic. Already donated to it.

Would be great to get this onto greenlight anyway.

Greenlight or not, this is still an interesting proposition! Elite & Frontier are legendary games! Worth a look regardless of if it is on Greenlight or not!

Here is the kickstarter site dedicated to the Elite: Dangerous game:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1461411552/elite-dangerous

I remember playing Frontier Elite 2 for years literally, this is such a major project because it is likely to be so different from games today. In the Elite games you live another life you arent playing a game. Welcome back the space sim genre to the PC you have been missing for too long. If you dont know what Elite is all about do some reasearch look at Youtube and most importantly pledge some money to the cause!!

Ah right, my apologies. I didn't realise that - well it will do if the devs can be persuaded to GL it, alas I can't, otherwise I'd willingly pay for it!

On the other hand this is a *general* discussion about greenlight.

I just dont get why so many ppl are backing this, since he doesnt really have any videos/pics of the game in development up? Concept art is easy to make (by skillful ppl), and as far as I can see, the 'videos' he does have are from the old game...
Surely a company like Frontier could put up some more alrdy than just a pitch? Espc if he's asking for over a million. So many indie game devs are able to put up more, and theyve got smaller teams.
Furthermore, Frontier failed to deliver an amazing looking game such as the Outsider, who says they'll be able to deliver this one? Also, aren't they more into mobile games now?

I think it's because when the devs have worked on this series in the past, the games that they've produced have been groundbreaking- so it's all about basing the funding on the reputation of the devs- that, once again, they will produce something outstanding.

Fair enough to be sceptical- needs some more information though, to persuade people of the magic that this could be.

Outsider may have looked amazing, though I thought it would be another walk around a lot aimlessly shooting things and completing quests folderal like boring Skyrim - old hat. Perhaps they werent confident in releasing it into a market full of those types of adventures?

but the devs from then have left/been fired since the Outsider failed... so there is no reputation to defend then, apart from David Braben's one... also, this: http://www.iancgbell.clara.net/elite/archive/b5081501.htm

Braben is trying to establish whether there is a market as far as I can tell before committing resources - but I reckon there's a Frontier skunkworks that is working on this on the side. My appetite is whetted - and I would love to see it come to fruition.
