Into the Stars Kickstarter

A new Kickstarter is underway for Into the Stars, a single-player space exploration and combat games planned for Windows and OS X by Fugitive Games, a developer that includes a couple of former DICE project leads. A Kickstarter trailer and an announce trailer offer looks at the game and its spiffy Unreal Engine 4 graphics. Word is: "Two former DICE leads, an established art director and a veteran designer from the Battlefield, Lost Planet and Shadows of the Damned games have combined to form Fugitive Games. Their first title, Into the Stars, is an open-world space survival simulation for PC and Mac built in Unreal Engine 4. Into the Stars features an original score from Jack Wall, the legendary composer behind the music of Mass Effect, Call of Duty and Lost Planet." Here's more:
Take the role of Captain as you explore a massive solar system in search of a new home for humanity. Outfit your ship, hand pick your crew, and set off on a journey where you must scavenge resources, shelter civilians, and outrun a hostile alien force in order to survive.

Your ship, the Ark 13, is the last to leave our besieged planet, and you are at the helm. But before you set out, some decisions must be made: Which modules will you choose to take with you, and who will manufacture them? What resources will fill your limited cargo holds, and which crew members will you take under your wing?

Once in flight, your responsibilities as captain will push your limits: Monitor the condition of your crew, civilians and modules, ensure a steady flow of resources, and navigate celestial bodies – all while evading a pursuing enemy.

85K for a game that looks like that? I'm going to go ahead and say that that's roughly a few zeroes short at the end.

Are you trying to tell us, Star Citizen is underfunded? BRB, buying more ships.

Also, I'm going to guess that roughly half of that 85K would go directly to Jack Wall.

Finally, two ex-DICE guys, so yeah, this'll run great straight out of the gate.

(edit: I'd gladly pay 35 bucks if they guaranteed I'd get that soundtrack by Jack Wall. His music is fucking phenomenal. They could deliver the game or not, I wouldn't care. I just want the soundtrack.)

That's the impression I got reading it too. $85,000 is about exactly what you need to hire one professional for a full year. Not nearly enough for a team of people. Kinda sounds like the "team" is doing this in their spare time while still working day jobs and this money is to hire the veteran composer to work on contract.

I got as far as "oregon trail in space" and lost interest.

second look, it might be decent. I upvoted it on greenlight, looks like the kickstarter is just something they're doing to get some extra funding but the game looks well on its way to being made.

A) Their resumes alone should make anyone avoid this like the plague.

B) This is solely about hiring one guy to do the music score for the game. What a complete and utter waste of time and money.

So yeah, that's a definite pass.

Looks alright but current funding levels are not encouraging for their success. Some of the concepts seem straight out of FTL but hey that game was great so no prob.

Nice graphics and interesting concept. I'll be watching this one.
