I haven't posted about Kickstarters in the past but I think this is a good cause.

Eterium is being developed by a small group and it looks really good. It is a space combat sim with an X-Wing/Wing Commander vibe:

They have about 17 hours to go and are only $3,700 away. They are asking for a modest $25,000 and have a demo you can download and play.

These guys have been running a great Kickstarter but haven't gotten the publicity they have needed to make this happen. You can own this game for as little as $15.

Take a look and jump in if you are interested! I know a lot of folks hate Kickstarters but there have been successes and I think, if funded, this will be one of them!

Flame me if you want. My skin is thick!!

I think the engine is nearly complete (and they have really come a long way with it). He is building missions and polishing the between-mission stuff.

Thanks for the heads up. I put $15 down. Hopefully it makes it. I'm always up for playing a space shooter.

Seems pretty "anime" to me. I dunno...graphics are not super impressive either.

The between-mission graphics have been one of the largest criticisms. I believe they are looking at polishing those up.

The graphics are a matter of taste. It certainly isn't going to be another Star Citizen but they are not bad for a small indie shop. They have really improved it since the start of the campaign.

Thanks for looking at it!
