SOURCE : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-20165344 Snippet : 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." For those who dont know the game : Loved this game when it came out changed my view on computer games entirely , really hope this sees the light of day .... well i donated my £10 .. hope it helps.
