You could be forgiven for seeing the initial launch of David Braben and Frontier Developments' ambitious Kickstarter campaign for a new Elite game and thinking, "Okay, but where's the game?"

Most Kickstarter pitches these days at least show some hint of what the finished project will look like, but the Elite Kickstarter Page, upon first launch, showed nothing of the sort. Just a logo, and a goal of just under $2 million bucks, US. Okay then.

The campaign, which builds on decades of love for the hugely popular Elite series, has already raised a big chunk of cash. But it would appear Braben heard the concerns about the total lack of concept art of design documents, as there's now some concept art and a pitch video on the page.

So, if you choose to back them, you'll at least be getting somewhat of a better idea of what your money is going towards.
