Something to point out for Mac & Linux users, if you pledge for the game you'll be able to download a copy for your prefered platform if it gets made, which depends on the success of the Windows version.
Quote from update 21
"Another item we get asked is about other platforms. especially Mac and Linux. This Kickstarter project is to create the Windows PC version. However we are a multi-platform company and do intend to look into other platforms after the first release. However we are aware that people who want a Mac or Linux version would like to support the Kickstarter. So, if you have pledged to receive a copy of the game and we later produce a Mac or Linux version, you can download a copy for those platforms. Note that we can't guarantee we'll develop a version for those platforms, but we do take them seriously and hope to support them."

Update 25 is out, with a dev diary about trading and mining. Good update!
Less than £220,000 to be raised with 7 days to go.
19,216 backers£1,091,881 pledged of £1,250,000 goal5 days to go
Update 28 is out, with some details about ship customization.
There's less that 4 days to go and the campaign is very close to reaching its goal, just £120,000 needed.
Elite: Dangerous will be a massive (that is an understatement) sandbox space sim enabling players to take on various roles, such as Trader or Bounty Hunter. Unlike an MMORPG there'll be no skills as such, instead your ship configuration will define what you can do.
It'll also offer multiplayer options (upto MMO scale) as well as single player.
If you want a game like this have a look at the Kickstarter page and consider making a pledge. The £80, £85, & £90 pledge tiers are well worth considering.
Three days left. They are at $1,144,296 of the desired $1, 250,000. This is going right down to the wire and regretfully they may well fall a few Euros short.
PS: I am kind of stumped as to why a game like this is having such a hard time exceeding all funding expectations. They desere a shot to make this happen in my opinion. C'mon! Pledge...
Update 29 is out, with an Art Diary featuring Art Director John Laws. A very good update.
If you want all the start positions avaiable for backers you'll need to pledge £85 for the Kickstarter Special which will also include any expansions for free and much more.
There's less than £100,000 to raise with 3 days to go.
