Re: Infinity: Battlescape to launch Kickstarter Campaign on Oct 21st
I think it's too early to judge Infinity on that account. As I said above, so far there's only one ship and one weapon type implemented. And I'm confident that as soon as test players overcome their "Whoa, seamless transition"-hype, lots of critical feedback about the combat will start to flow, since it's the most important feature of the game. There is no compelling story to counter sloppy gameplay design. So either they get it right, or modders will have to do it.

So it's been four months now since the end of the kickstarter campaign and I-Novae have now delivered the prototype to eligible backers. They streamed the launch event featuring a new playable ship (a bomber) and some added installations. Many things are still placeholders and unfinished, but the game still looks fun for the things you can do so far and I'm looking forward to playing the Alpha once it is released later this year.
One backer made some nice 4k screenshots:

And here's the video of the launch event:

A necro just to notify you guys that the game is still actively developed. It's now in beta and the devs are aiming for a release this year. It looks gorgeous (considering the small team and tiny budget). I just hope they don't botch the marketing. I think this game could be fun, their netcode supports hundreds of players, so there is a potential for really epic battles, if there will be enough active players that is.

Re: Infinity: Battlescape to launch Kickstarter Campaign on Oct 21st
I've always loved the concept of this game - I still have artwork for the Silverbow fighter on my old computer. Granted, Battlescape is a bit different in the artwork/story direction than the original game is or rather was, but the awesome remains all the same...

I threw $20 at the Kickstarter when I had the chance, and I'm happy I did. Now, if I ever elect to play the game when it becomes available to me, I'll have to throw an uncomfortable amount at a new computer, a concept which I hold with mixed feelings.
