David Braben Kickstarts an Elite reboot

  • This is great news for Elite fans - David Braben has kept a tight hold on the rights to "Elite", but it looks like it's finally getting made. The only thing that puzzles me is how it's being funded - Braben's game studio, Frontier Development, has surely got the resources to make this game without needing money up front.
