Re: Space Odyssey: The Game (Kickstarter)

I'd back it, although I'm getting a strong sense of "this probably wouldn't be a good game". I think it could be used as an opportunity to get more people interested in astronomy/the space program in general - and, knowing Tyson, that's what he'd be likely to try to use it as. Unfortunately, I don't have anything on my debit card at the moment.

A $314,159 Target seems a bit low given the list of industry professionals.
Is the kickstarter ment to just popularise the project?

Maybe Neil deGrasse Tyson can also lend his name to Limit Theory, marketing it as:

"Neil deGrasse Tysons Limit Theory" ;)
IIRC they said the kickstarter goal was mainly to raise money for community interaction and PR.

It sounds like it could be an interesting space sim just to mess around with. I'm sure it would get old after a while but I'm the sort of person who can "play" Space Engine for hours on end so I figure if it gets finished I'd buy it :)
