Kickstarter has become very popular in the world of gaming after the success of Double Fine and Wasteland 2, unfortunately most Kickstarter games are exclusive to PC and while there’s often some obvious and understandable reasons for that it’s a shame for someone like me with a PC which can barely run a Flash game… if I’m lucky. That’s why I was very happy to see a project for the Vita, and PC.
Starlight Inception is a space combat game in the vein of Wing Commander and X-Wing VS TIE. The studio behind the game is Escape Hatch headed by industry veteran Garry Gaber who worked for ten years at Lucas Art Entertainment. But instead of me telling about the game take a look at the pitch and Q&A video and of course the Kickstarter page
The campaign has raised $60.000 out of the $150.000 they need and with 7 days left it doesn’t look too good, but it is far from impossible to reach the goal. It would be a shame if they do not succeed, it’s an ambitious project with a strong vision and it’s easy to see the passion. Also, as mentioned in the second video, Grammy nominated composer David Arkenstone will be making the music for the game and some promising concept art has recently been released.
To read more and to back the project head over to Kickstarter and show your support.
