Starlight Inception Kickstart

This Kickstarter from Escape Hatch Entertainment seeks to fund Starlight Inception, "a space combat experience with modern elements of strategy and tactics." Escape Hatch is headed up by Garry Gaber, formerly of LucasArts, and the post contains quotes verifying his long-standing passion for this type of game:

Our goal is to create a descendant of the space combat genre - it's a game about flying space fighters, bombers and other spacecraft, but it's also about managing the ship's power usage between shields and stealth generators, engines, and weapons. Plus, as you get further in the game, you amass quite an arsenal to pick from for missions. The game's art style is photoreal and gritty - you'll feel like you're in the middle of a big battle amongst the planets, moons and asteroids, making decisions that affect your life and the life of your wingmen, whether human or autonomous drones.

this one looks like decent enough creative vision, but too much marketing focus and poor business strategy. if only there were some middle ground which strikes a balance between the three without having one dominate the other disproportionately, like marketing has in all the big games these days. the big pubs take over zealous marketing and business strategies, add a micro drop of "essence of creativity" hoping that's all that's needed, cause you know being creative costs too much.

here's hoping things get straightened out a bit with this one.
