Garry Gaber, the project lead on Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds and Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds: Clone Campaigns while at LucasArts, has launched a Kickstarter to raise funds for a space combat game for PC and PlayStation Vita called Starlight Inception. Gaber is looking to raise about $150,000 for the game, which he describes as a "first-person/third-person free-roaming space shooter". If all goes well with the funding, Gaber hopes to have the game ready for take-off in the third quarter of 2013.
Here's more from the Kickstarter page:
"Starlight Inception is a space combat experience with modern elements of strategy and tactics.
You assume the role of a young space fighter pilot assigned to the star carrier U.S.F. Independence, deploying to hotspots throughout the Solar System during World War IV.
Starlight Inception is a realistic and relevant 1st person / 3rd person free-roaming space combat experience. It has a unique blend of action with an involving storyline. Features include ship based combat both in space and on planets and moons, interplanetary exploration, and multiplayer dogfighting."
