I had this project in mind for a long time partly because of the recent game that are way over limited with small maps that just put me off. (In some case the map is just a tunnel wich you are forced to to along and kill X amount of monster on the way)
I was also inspired by a couple of games that push in the same way like the following ones are these that inspired me.
This is just a remake of the original Elite game but still it's way better then most game we get these days.
This one is certainly the most impressive project i've seen take a look its worth it.
