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.

You do have to wonder what would happen if some of the MANY one-man-effort space sim devlopers would team up. Limit Theory looks interesting, but over the years there hare been so many interesting looking space sim projects that never materialized, I find myself never getting excited about anything. That's probably one of the genre's biggest problems.
I've been following Rogue System with some interest because I really like the concept of complex systems and clickable cockpits (a la modern flight sims) integrated with a space game. It too, though, is a one man, part-time, project and though the developer is serious (and seems really cool), one man's life has a way of making these things tend to fade away before becoming full products. I hope it, and the many others, make it though.
