Elite classic video games remake seeking backers

Classic video game Elite is getting a 21st Century makeover.

David Braben, one of the creators of the original, is seeking £1.25m ($2m) via Kickstarter to fund the updated version.

Called Elite: Dangerous it will involve the same mix of interstellar travel, trading, piracy and spaceships as the original 8-bit game.

Yes I say, yes!

Also, please God, make it so awesome that we have to find a new word for how awesome it is.
