"We Need Your Help Now And Over The Holidays"
Elite: Dangerous has managed to raise over £820,000 in Kickstarter pledges so far, with fifteen days left to secure the rest of the £1.25 million. Frontier Developments have opened direct PayPal funding for those having trouble with their cards on Kickstarter UK, and issued a brand new teaser trailer alongside a (slightly desperate) statement to backers.
"We still have ~£450,000 to go, and just 16 days to do it in – we need your help now and over the Holidays!" reads the missive. "We need to spread the word far and wide. We’ll of course be doing that as well, and thank you to those who have already been doing it, but we now need a big push from as many people as possible to try and make sure we hit the Kickstarter total and get to make this game."
Frontier developments clearly knows that Kickstarter views will probably drop over the Christmas holidays - will you be backing the space sim sequel?
