In just four days, Free Stars: Children Of Infinity, the sequel to the beloved series formerly known as Star Control, has exceeded its Kickstarter funding goal by more than triple. The game has already raised an impressive $332k (£268k) and shows no sign of slowing down. With several stretch goals still in sight, including one as high as $4.4 million, it is clear that fans are eager to see this project come to fruition.

Free Stars: Children Of Infinity promises to be a faithful follow-up to its predecessor. Players will once again take control of a spaceship to explore the galaxy, charting their own path between planets, interacting with alien species, and engaging in arcade-style battles. The addition of online co-op adds a new dimension to gameplay, allowing players to strategize and collaborate with friends in real-time.

The journey to creating Free Stars: Children Of Infinity has been a tumultuous one. After announcing their plans for a direct sequel to Star Control 2 in 2017, series creators Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III found themselves in a legal battle with Stardock. The dispute was eventually settled, leading to the re-release of Star Control 2 as Free Stars: The Ur-Quan Masters on Steam. Now, with the formation of Pistol Shrimp, a studio comprised of former developers from Ford and Reiche’s original studio Toys For Bob, the team behind Free Stars: Children Of Infinity is ready to deliver a new and exciting chapter in the series.

As the Kickstarter campaign for Free Stars: Children Of Infinity continues, fans eagerly anticipate the possibility of reaching the $4.4 million stretch goal. This goal would pave the way for a completely open-source release of the game, giving players the opportunity to modify and enhance the experience to their liking. With 27 days left in the campaign, the team behind Free Stars: Children Of Infinity is hard at work to make this goal a reality.

The success of Free Stars: Children Of Infinity on Kickstarter is a testament to the dedication and passion of both the developers and the fans. As the campaign progresses, it is clear that the future of the series is bright, and players can look forward to an exciting new chapter in the world of Star Control.
