I wasn't convinced by the initial Elite: Dangerous Kickstarter
pitch. It was nebulous, and built on the notion that people played a game years and years ago and quite liked it. It felt like my memories and love were being sold back to me. But as the updates are slowly populating the site, I've become more and more intrigued in what Frontier are promising. The first look at the flight and fighting mechanics
made me prick my ears like an interested Spock, but it's the second update, concentrating on the evolution of the galaxy and the missions that could come out of that, that's convincing me that this is more than just a loving gaze at my back pocket and the copy of Elite II on my desk.
