who remembers this computer game on the BBC computer b

Who is involved in the kickstarter for the remake elite dangerous.

I really want to produce a table top game for those models.

I still get out my BBC sometimes and play Elite though my analogue joysticks are starting to wear out now

Signed up for the KS – can't wait. Spent far too many hours in my youth playing the original on a BBC B.

You can download a licensed open source version for free. For the Mac it's called Oolite. Google is your friend to find it.

played it to death on my trusty C64. My mother was a huge fan of it too.

if you have an ios/android device get galaxy on fire 2 you wont be disappointed- although its heavily inspired by frontier (the buggy elite sequel).

do you guys remember the rip offs like FOFT?

yes remember all the rip offs and the bad American acting games that came out, that's why I am really hoping that this kickstarter will come along and blow everyone out of the water.

if you remember elite, and want to revisit Lave with a second hand ship and 100 credits, then this will be the game for you.
