Thanks to Pylon_Trooper for this... taken from the Vita advice thread:

Bugger all Kickstarter projects prior. Portable space dog fighter?! Yes. Yes indeed.

and from the write-up...

The game takes place in the distance future where World War IV has broken out. Yes World War IV. The title might help you guess that the game takes place in space where you control a pilot of a ship in one of the giant battles. The game is being developed by Garry Gaber. If you don’t know who that is, he was the project lead on Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns. So you know he knows a thing or too about space.

“I’m really passionate about the space combat genre and am very excited to be putting together a game that is the natural descendant of beloved titles like Wing Commander and X-wing vs. TIE Fighter, but with a modern spin,” said Garry Gaber, the President and Chief Creative Officer of Escape Hatch Entertainment. “We have a robust storyline, and different single player and multiplayer modes to keep players excited and enthralled.”

Think of it.

4-8 small starfighters, attacking giant capital ships, screaming at each other over the party chat 'cause I Can't Shake Him or he's Impacted On The Surface....

Just a Kickstarter idea for now but I think I'm pretty interested. It's been so long since we had a good console space dogfighter. I pine for a Colony Wars update. Until that happens...

And until (or if?) this takes off play Free Allegiance on your PC, modern or ancient alike.

It's been called Team Fortress in space but it's generally far more strategic with RTS elements and iirc 64 or more players.

Edit: sorry, I thought the keywords were "Miss space dogfights?". Also, the game's said to be made for PC too, so...

An old grizzled fan of Allegiance. Nothing else quite compares.

But to have a pocket dogfighter is a luxury I'd like to experience. Especially one with a physical control scheme as well as touch interface.

The keyword was "portable".

Maybe I'm missing something but what pedigree is there exactly? From what I can tell guy hasn't actually developed any space fighters before.

This thread, by the way, made me rage hard once again for the cancellation of that Futuremark Games' space sim.

I was sadly late to the Shattered Horizon party (due to hardware), but by God, did I have the best time with the few remaining hardened drunkards who were taking their debauchery to daybreak. To have had an actual space sim by the folks behind such glory...

...well, let us not weep over what could have been.

As we are talking of other Space Fighters do any of you guys still play Black Prophecy? I think I'll give it a go again to check if I can have lagless games going on.

I was referring to Gary Gaber (Star Wars Battlegrounds games), poorly worded on my part I admit, but that bodes well for multiplayer dynamics, IMO.

Maybe restructure and rename this thread so it reflects the Kickstarter? Also mention the PC version to bring in the masses, it's not going to get big support with only Vita folk.

I felt the same way. There's no actual gameplay and the premise feels very been there done that. I'd rather throw money at something unique and new.

I would imagine that would require a lot more funding than cg scenes.

Actually that's not the problem.
The game was cancelled cause motherfucking Rovio (yes, Angry Birds' Rovio) bought them.
This industry sucks.

Damn, the space sim vid looks amazing! We space shooter fans really get shafted year after year ;(

I hope this Kickstart project succeeds and fast, maybe this will be noticed by Studio Liverpool or someone and they'll bring back my beloved Colony Wars. Hope never dies!

Probably the most well thought out and descriptive kickstarter description for a game I've seen yet. One of the few where you get the idea that they know exactly where every dollar of the budget is going to go and aren't just looking for cash and hoping it's enough.

Hope they succeed.
