It's like Spore in space... even though that was in space too. Kinetic Void Kickstarter almost over but not at goal yet.

Kinetic Void is a PC single player space adventure game looking for funding on Kickstarter. They are currently at $47,000 out of their $60,000 goal with approximately 6 hours to go. If you have a 2GHz CPU and GeForce 8800 GPU or better and would like to back the project then do so like -- right now. You will only be billed for your pledge if they reach their $60,000 goal.

Update (5/30/2012): They're funded -- but if you want to keep donating to give them more development funds I'm sure they could use it.

Yet another awesome looking indie project is looking for crowd-funding.

There are probably a bunch of fans of space sims in our audience -- and I know there are a bunch of fans of PC games in our audience. Most of these games will only be possible with crowd funding and Kinetic Void is teetering on the edge of expiring. If you like it -- the next 6 hours is basically your last chance to back it so do not wait.

When I started writing this article it was at $46,000… so it’s possible. Hop to it if you want it.

The expected system requirements for the game is quite lean with just a 2.0 GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM, and GeForce 8800 GPU needed to play. They recommend a multi-core CPU which is still very reasonable these days to say the least. It is not the prettiest game but that is not the point.

$10-or-more will get you the full game when it is launched in late 2012 or early 2013 -- or if you spring for $20+ you can get Beta access as well.

But only if it is funded… so go to Kickstarter if it seems interesting to you.

I suspect a lot of people had the same concern I did when it first launched -- it looks like an awful lot of it was stripped out of EVE-Online. Granted, that may just be temporary place-holder UI, but the ship in the demonstrations looks almost identical to the Hulk mining/hauling ship and the docked-interface (the platform the ship is floating on, the way the ship is displayed and rotated around, and the interface on the left and right menus) look EXACTLY like the docked in-station setting from EVE.
