Starflight 3

Postby Blake » Sep 15 2018, 15:26

You guys seen the new official Starflight 3 game in the making? Cool to see this 30yr old dead franchise coming back to life! Not sure if it'll get funded though as so many years have passed! Plus a lot of people have never heard of Fig.

There was an earlier attempt at Starflight 3 several years ago that ended up making little progress; hopefully this one will fare better. Starflight 1 was the first RPG like game I played on an old Heathkit computer with its 8088 cpu and two 5 1/4 floppy disk drives. Getting old

Hey Jeff! Yeah that was the fan made SF3 project which has died and restarted about 4 times now lol!!! Whereas this one is actually official and from the original SF1&2 designer Greg Johnson.

Speaking of the failed SF3 fan project I've been working lately on collecting the various different source files from the project and compiling them into playable demos I can release to the public soon.

If you're a old Starflight fan then feel free to come join the Starflight Fan page on fb as we're covering the official sequel, doing videos of old rarely seen SF fan games and if that's not enough we're supporting a rather talented ex-bethesda employee working on a fan remake of Starflight 1 too!! His work looks amazing!

Well it looks like it was all for nothing sadly. Just over a day to go and the Starflight 3 crowdfund is barely over halfway. 30 years waiting for a sequel and its fails due to not enough media attention. So many thousands of SF fans out there (SF1 was apparently the first ever game to go platinum with 1mil sales back in the 80s) that never got to hear about this. Such a shame!

3149 backers, over half of requested sum already promised. This looks like a lot but won't be enough. I never played StarFlight but it's a pitty.
This is It!

Well folks, we’re not gonna lie: it’s lookin’ grim. With only 2 days to go and the campaign at just over 50% of its goal we need a cosmic miracle. And those don’t come around too often. But what also doesn’t come around that often is the chance to engage with an amazing group of people who love Starflight as much as we do!

We’re almost done setting up our post-campaign channels for us all to stay in touch. Once that’s complete we’ll send out another update!

Thanks again so much for your support! And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@Starflightgame)!

Sincerely,

The Starflight 3 Team


They may however succeed at later point, now when they are a bit more known. Media attention needed, for sure!

Unfortunate, but not unexpected. The list of failed crowd funded games is long and keeps getting longer. I am in China currently and all/most of the media/social networks not China based are blocked; so I was unable to see any of the Facebook info.

Yeah there's still hope despite failing as Greg & Anthony said in a recent podcast that they'll look at improving the demo and may try a crowdfund again in the future or secure a publisher.

Ahh bummer, can you play non-chinese youtube vids there still? If so here's a video of the Starflight 1 remake instead. And here's a link to his SF1 Remake blog that's not on a major social media site so it might work.
