The Kickstarter Page for Elite: Dangerous now includes a new video developer diary on the topics of multiplayer and spaceships in Frontier Developments' upcoming space combat remake (thanks Trueman832). The clip includes narration from designer David Braben, and shows off gameplay footage. Additionally, the backer rewards for the project now include several options that include physical copies of the game.

What is the limit of people's stupidity? How long can a single individual uphold the one-man-show gig and keep the cash pouring in without anyone getting seriously suspicious?
Honestly, guys. Just think about the title of the "game". Limit Theory. Think about the premise, think about what's shown, think it all through... do we really believe in the concept of a single guy being able to work magic out of his ass? Really? Do we?
To tell you the truth I sure as fuck don't. I, for one, wouldn't be surprised one bit if at the end of the campaign a giant middle finger is flipping us all the birdie at the KS page with a single line posted "EXACTLY HOW FUCKING RETARDED ARE YOU ALL AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH YOU DUMBFUXX?!?".
Wow, I take it your a 'Glass Half-Empty' kind of guy, eh?
Hey, don't fret, so am I. But that idea someone had before about getting all these one man groups together in one room (or project) would be seriously interesting! Imagine that, if they all formed a group, put all the projects together in one 'Mega' space-sim...and out popped Tie Fighter 2 three years later...ha ha...
No but seriously, think about it. A Privateer/sandbox-type sim, with Star Citizen/CryEngine3 graphics, a single player MMO, the other players being very intelligent AI (I guess you could have multi, if you wanted that...blech!...as long as it was implemented seamlessly, like maybe how Burnout: Paradise did it) with the Star Wars or Star Trek or B5 or Star Gate licenses...all for your choosing. You can be part of the evil 'Imperial'/Klingon-Romulan- Cardassian-Borg-Dominion/Shadow- Centuri-Narn-Drakh- Clarks'Forces/whateveEvil StargateRaceThereIs (I don't watch it enough, sorry), or you could be on the 'good' side or anything in-between...
