Blackspace Kickstarter

This Kickstarter seeks backers for Blackspace, an upcoming action strategy game that is a bit of an homage to the classic Asteroids arcade game, among other things. They offer a spiffy trailer that concludes with the game's motto: "Plan. Dig. Defend. Survive." Here's more:

Blackspace is a defensive action / strategy game that takes place in the not too distant future, when asteroid mining has become common. Piloting a mining craft around a unique series of asteroids, you will be establishing mining operations while defending yourself from incoming enemies who loot and destroy.

The key features in this game are a destructible spherical play surface, direct control of the environment and extensive use of physics to make the experience more organic and non-formulaic. Upgrade and modify your ship and your operations to suit your play style.

I was interested in this until I realized that it's basically tower defense. You're always on defense, never on offense.

Wow, this game actually looks pretty amazing. Obviously the video has some placeholder 3d models instead of final product models, but the basics of the game look solid.

Looking forward to this, considering backing yet another Kickstarter. Dammit.

I backed this one because it looks promising. They also are on Steam's Greenlight trying to get voted up and maybe a little more attention to their KS.
