Escape Velocity lives (sorta)

Big news for fans of this classic Mac game: there’s a Kickstarter to bring back Escape Velocity: Override!

The interesting parts:

It is a remake of Escape Velocity: Override (1998), by the same scenario designer. It is planned to be released for Mac, Windows PC and Linux systems, with a target release date in the middle of 2021.

One of the developers, Peter Cartwright, was the scenario designer of Escape Velocity: Override, published by Ambrosia Software. Since Ambrosia Software are no longer a going concern, Escape Velocity: Override has fallen out-of-print and so its publishing rights have reverted to the authors.

It’s got the right pedigree; I hope it gets the necessary support.
