David Braben's Elite 4 gets OS X Stretch Goal

Looks like Elite 4 is getting Mac Support (if it raises 1.4million GBP!)

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...angerous/posts

I've been looking forward to this since my Atari ST days, great to see it coming out on the Mac. The only good OS's are those with a menu bar across the top of the screen ;-)

I've already made a submission to macrumors. Hopefully they'll post it and send a few more people to the kickstarter page.

This game has to be made and to have it on the best OS would be the dogs dangler.

It has just gone over the £1M mark.. so the OSX stretch goal is looking like it could be hit.

I really dislike that big devs go on kickstarter and asking about close to two million dollars to make a game.

It takes away focus and money from smaller devs. Kickstarter should really get a upper limit on goals to keep away people like these and Peter Molneyux away from it.

I believe many smaller projects fail on kickstarter because people gives money to the big companies.

Next up on kickstarter:

Windows 9, for 10 mill bucks and Call of Duty Black Ops 3 for 6 mill...
And of course Battlefield 4 for only 5 mill..

Same here...as if an extra million pounds were really needed to develop an OS X version of a game...if in doubt, ask small companies like Spiderweb et al.
