Homeworld IP & Games Kickstarter

A Kickstarter campaign from indie developer teamPixel renews their efforts to crowdsource funding to acquire the Homeworld IP that is up for sale following the bankruptcy of THQ (thanks Ivan). They have some cash from an Indiegogo campaign and are now looking for at least $50K to support them acquiring the IP for the sci-fi RTS series and produce a new game for Windows/OS X ("together with the modding community"), a remake of the original for iOS/Android, and a Homeworld rerelease on GOG.com. These modest requirements are addressed by their explanation that there is additional funding for this and their plan to enlist volunteer support:
In addition to our own own private equity, lender, and investor financing, we're looking to the Kickstarter community to supplement our available funds for licensing and executing this project. Unlike a corporately-sponsored production, a teamPixel-produced Homeworld would be an indie studio undertaking which we believe will bring development closer to the gaming community than previous Homeworld productions. Our minimum goal is $50,000 to be added to our present funds, but we're hoping fans will help carry us beyond that threshold. This fundraiser is a huge opportunity for you to end the stagnation of a legendary franchise and steer the course of future games!

In addition, we're looking to the modding community for interested designers and developers to contribute to the undertaking. Along with our main staff, we already have a few modders in line to help, and together we can create a future for the franchise the fans have been waiting for while also giving the legacy games some well-deserved attention.
