If you don’t know the game Elite then we can’t be friends. Sorry.
Classic video game Elite is getting a 21st Century makeover.
David Braben, one of the creators of the original, is seeking £1.25m ($2m) via Kickstarter to fund the updated version.
Called Elite: Dangerous it will involve the same mix of interstellar travel, trading, piracy and spaceships as the original 8-bit game.
Those who pledge cash to the project will also get a chance to shape the development of the updated version.
“Elite is a game that I’ve wanted to come back to for a very, very long time,” Mr Braben told the BBC. “It’s the sort of game that I would very much like to play today.”
This and Chris Roberts making a new game. Well it’s like all my dreams come true. Or a conspiracy to keep me indoors more.
