      David you have made my year (I also got married this year), while others were out playing footy I was inside on my Amiga playing Frontier (at the age of 16) in my summer holidays, I'm now 31 and I cant wait to play this dude.... I literally love you!

      If the game is to be multiplayer friendly, how will you go about recreating the sense of scale the first game had?
      Will the game take any influences from the sequels, such as star dream controls… landing on planets, physics etc? Will the game offer a good single player experience?
      Just some questions of the top of my head =)
      Thanks David, your games are one of the few constants on my hard drive over the last 20 years! Oh, and please can I keep my Panther Clipper… pretty please?

      Totally cannot wait!

      David, I sent you an email about something else over the weekend ... I just wonder if you got it? Understand if you're not interested! :)

      It is amazing, but I'm a sucker for pretty pictures. Maybe throw in some posters for pledgers? Little concept art to whet the appetite?

      Cheers, and good luck! A desktop background sized version of the new logo would be great so we can all bask in its warm glow while we wait. :)

      Hey, I'm asking out of love and as a huge Elite fan, but can we see some screenshots or video of the actual game, please?

      Woo hoo! Great to be able to support a new version of the greatest game ever. I was so pleased when I heard about the Carmageddon kickstarter but this is 100 times more exciting. 1.25 million is a lot of money so I really hope this gets lots of publicity... and my £20 is not going to help much but lets hope there are many more to follow. Good luck Mr Braben... and friends
