X-Wing spiritual successor Starfighter Inc. fails to fund

You can’t win them all, kid. And while $226,000 is an impressive chunk of money to raise for a game, it wasn’t enough to launch Starfighter Inc. into development.

The spiritual successor to the popular X-Wing space shooter, Starfighter Inc. was attempting to utilize Kickstarter as a fundraising platform to raise a quarter of a million dollars. Even though it had a strong start and was eyeing stretch goals early on, Starfighter still fell thousands short of hitting the mark.

The good news is that Impeller Studios doesn’t look to be giving up on the project, encouraging fans to stay tuned: “We’ll update the front page later today and send an announcement on our partners as well as the roadmap via the newsletter this week.”

Star Citizen is the new Mega Space Sim, short and simple that is why it’s crowd funding has gone the way it did.
The backs know success when they see it.

Star Citizen is all that counts since it will do everything every space sim dreamed of doing. 
ALL HAIL STAR CITIZEN!!!!! 
Star Citizen will be king of all space sims for the next 20 years. Then there will be Star Citizen 2 for another 20 years.

Star Wars has ran it’s course. It had a long run, be happy.

Never spent $1200 on a ship, so bought a lot of other ships that was well over $1200. Seemed to be a better deal then owning a couple expensive ships.

This was a amusing arcade looking game….oh well… it just was not meant to be.

 As long as Star Citizen exist, there is hope for the greatest space game ever.

There will be other space games one day, just gotta wait and hope.

Werewolf Finds Dragon In the future they find out neural interfaces give people cancer. My 10x great grand daughter is very (or will be very) offended by by your comments.

I think we need a governing committee on this whole “spiritual successor” thing.  Saying something is the spiritual successor to a Star Wars game without actually being a Star Wars game seems more than a bit off.  That should be a violation straight off.  (Though perhaps Mr. Olivetti should get the summons, since he seems to be pushing that angle in his reporting harder than the dev team was.)

At least it was closer to the mark than when Smed said H1Z1 was the spiritual successor to SWG.

I think most fans of the spacecraft genre have their hopes firmly pinned on Star Citizen atm, until that launches and either succeeds or flops I don’t think people are giving much notice to anything else.

It was a real shame this Kickstarter project failed. I think they should try again, with some alterations.
