Escape Velocity: Override kickstarter in the works!

Post May 19th '20, 21:01

Hey!

There is an ongoing Kickstarter to remaster the old Mac classic Escape Velocity: Override under the name Cosmic Frontier: Override. It is run by two people, a long time fan, and the lead designer of EV: Override itself!

There is roughly one week left and still a little way to go on the Kickstarter, so if anyone here played it back in the day (or still play it on occasion), please do give it a look here:

For those unfamiliar with the game, it is a top-down space action and trading game heavily inspired by Elite, and which also went and inspired games such as NAEV and Endless Sky.

Here is a Youtube video about it:

And here are some neat art pieces the community have cooked up over the last month:

I should have thought to post this here myself. Hope it gets to its goal, I want a new Override engine! Linux support, widescreen, plus Mac users would be able to play it again. And being on GOG is a great thing.

I remember my bro being a big fan of this game back when. I should tell him, he might like this too!
