An aspiring writer named Drew Wagar is using Kickstarter to get access to the money he needs in order to pay for a reward tier linked to the crowd funding service project for Elite: Dangerous.
He aims to get 4,500 dollars (3,750 Euro) in order to write a novel called Elite: Reclamation and he is more than halfway to his goal.
Wagar says, “I’m an enormous fan of Elite. I started playing back in 1984 when I got Elite for Christmas as a bright eyed 13 year old. I know my Zieman deflector shields from my Irrikon Thru-space drives. You’ll have seen the Tionisla Orbital graveyard in the video. I *really* know this stuff. You can trust me on this one.”
The writer will use the money he raises to pay for a reward tier for Elite: Dangerous, which will allow him to integrate his fiction into the upcoming space sim.
