New Elite game kickstarted

One of my first video game loves was the original Elite on the Commodore, an open-ended space adventurer simulation.  I played that game for hours and hours, meticulously tracking my trading and other adventures in logs (which I still have somewhere).  By today's standards, it was crude graphics, but there was an elegance to the vector graphics that is lacking in a lot of modern games.  The gameplay was just great.  It was unlike anything I'd played before.

I was very happy to read this morning that there is a kickstarter project to fund a new version of the game.  The stuff they show looks awesome.  I've got my pledge in!
