Kickstarter Begins For Wing Commander, X-Wing Successor

From Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Developer

Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds co-creator Garry Gaber has rounded up a development team and launched a Kickstarter campaign for Starlight Inception: a "natural descendant" of Wing Commander, X-Wing vs TIE Fighter and other classic space sims.

Starlight Inception is described as "a realistic and relevant 1st person / 3rd person free-roaming space combat experience," wherein players assume the role of a young space fighter pilot on the U.S.F. Independence. Combat will take place both in space and in atmosphere, with a level of "interplanetary exploration." Competitive multiplayer has also been confirmed.

I'm really passionate about the space combat genre and am very excited to be putting together a game that is the natural descendant of beloved titles like Wing Commander and X-wing vs. TIE Fighter, but with a modern spin. - Gaber

Starlight Inception will need to attract $150,000 over the next 33 days in order to secure its funding. As always, gamers, it's time to vote with your wallets.

Hmmm, promising but it sounds like it wont be as good.

X-Wing vs TIE Fighter was "proper". You could destroy ANY ship (including capital ships) eventually - just takes time to knock out the shield generators etc. whilst dog-fighting.
