Cosmic Frontier: Override, the remaster of the classic Escape Velocity: Override has managed to get successfully funded with the finishing of their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. Being developed by Evocation Games and Peter Cartwright, who is one of the original scenario designers.
The Kickstarter ended on May 26 with £38,783 in funding from just over 1,000 backers. Not only is it fully planned to support Linux, they will also be open sourcing the game engine used named Kestrel. They said that will happen after release, not during development for "practical reasons".
A classic space exploration, combat and trading sim. Cosmic Frontier: Override will involve piloting your ship from one star system to another, visiting planets and space stations, buying and selling goods to make a profit, while evading or fighting pirates and other threats.
