    Saw the video earlier, this could be really good if they get development started and funded, will be interesting to see how it goes though it already sounds very promising. :)

    Best piece of gaming news in many years for me. Sounds like the game I've always wanted, Chris Roberts knows his sh*t.

    Pretty exciting. I took the leap and bought a share so to speak. Thanks for posting it.

    Going by the narrative it's unlikely this will be made and for that reason the 'cinematic' trailer is likely designed to garner support, rather than represent any meaningful basis for what the game will in reality look like, at least if they are to follow the scope mentioned. The

    The best game currently available that approaches the sheer size of the ideas mentioned would be Eve, and Eve looks mostly like an X3 clone but with 3d models thrown in in certain situations, also being subscription based they have the finances but are unable to make anything that visually resembles the 'cinematic', it's likely possible, but only a very small minority would be able to run it so I strongly doubt an F2P model would be able to make this happen, or any model for that matter.

    I would guess the financier is more interested in pledges, in any way possible. I would also imagine the time spent in film production probably also came in handy when creating the 'cinematic' trailer.

    In any case, visuals aren't everything.

    I also quite liked EVE and I am currently quite enjoying x3 as well, with pretty much all the same aspects promised here; even though X3 was released more than a few years ago. I am also quite sure the next part of the X saga is a lot more likely to happen, given the success of Albion prelude; which was a surprise release; so no extensive media campaigns were necessary, either. As such, I have a lot more faith in the X series to provide a game that will be pretty much at the highest visual quality while keeping realistic commercial and technology constraints in perspective.

    Trailer looks good and Chris certainly has awesome ideas for the game! I might even pledge for it.

    I'm still waiting for Volition Inc. to make Freespace3, but after 13 years it doesn't seem very likely.

    Looks too good to be true to me. Also F2P? Yeah this isn't going to happen. He may make a space sim but don't get your hopes up on it looking anything like that presentation.

    Well at least Freespace 2 is under constant improvement and mod teams are making a bunch of other space sims using it at hard-light.net, like BSG: Diaspora, and there's Wing Commander Saga for the WC fans.
