"Project Space" playable demo from Sidhe - Kickstarter?
This video depicts a playable PC/360 demo that Sidhe created for a modern take on the classic space combat and exploration game Elite. The game took place in the distant future where displaced humans were exploring a strange new galaxy. With heavy customisation and expansive procedural content, the game also included social cross pollination of content inspired by the likes of Spore. We also really liked the cinematic depiction of combat as seen in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica which was a big inspiration for the prototype seen here.
The game was shelved indefinitely due to a lack of funding, but has always hung out there as something we would like to revisit. Perhaps a Kickstarter campaign is in order? Reimaginings of Elite and space combat seem to be all the rage this week.
Let us know what you think, what platforms you would like to see it onand any other ideas you might have.
