Here's the Kickstarter :


Since there is a bit too much talking at the beginning, here's an old engine demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhZQEvg1V0Y#t=2m02s


And if you you don't know Nexus...
You like space games? You like big, hulking cruisers lumbering through space and pounding away at each other, ripping their hulls to shreds? Nimble frigates, send out to stealthy close in to an enemy's vulnerable rear? You like swarms of fighters maneuvering alongside them, ready  to dash into dogfights at your order?  You like to play tales of dauntless space adventuring, while acquiring parts to customize and upgrade your fleet? You want all that packed into an epic story?

All that was Nexus, and I believe Nexus 2 can be more that that! This is the closest we got to a modern, high profile space game in years! And as long as Homeworld 3 doesn't happen it might be years until another game like this comes along. This must happen!

I though that a sequel to TJI was cancelled/never imagined?

Well, Eternity will happen anyway, Nexus 2 really needs help right now. I'll pledge for both. You could try out Nexus for 10$ on steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/6420/ It was a brilliant game, but with some shortcomings in initial accessibility. 

I though that a sequel to TJI was cancelled/never imagined?

The initial sequel about 6 years ago was canceled due to the usual publisher concerns.Then there was a a campaign on some never-heard-before crowd funding site some time ago, that nobody even noticed until it was too late.

Now this might be the last attempt, I got my fingers crossed...

damn......

Nexus was the game for me. The first space game I played. Tried the demo and had to hunt it down over the course of more than a whole year (back when I lived in China and steam was obscure as heck....)

I will be backing this with a passion


Now how does this work? I pay them and if they reach their goal this thing happens? What if they don't reach the goal? I get my money back right?

(first time considering kickstarters..... dk the ground rules XD)

You get your money back if they don't reach 650K.

Best tactical 3D space fleet battle game ever! Excellent story, superb special effects, gorgeous battleships. Believable NPC-s. Mysterious Asteroid fields. There is space commandos, they go on exciting missions,  but the best part is the excellent depiction of large ship battles. Not one studio managed to create anything that comes close to NEXUS: Jupiter Incident!

I played Nexus: Jupiter Incident very briefly (the tutorial missions), but I love space tactical games, so sign me up.

I've spent too much on Kickstarter already, but this one really tantalises me...

Nexus was the last game of its genre to date, as far as I know. And despite lacking some polish, overall it was very good.

I'd love to back this, but lack of a Mac option is a deal-killer for me. If it gets to the point where they make the stretch goal to make a Mac version, I'd gladly do it.

They probably won't even make their main goal. Unless some rich guy decides to dump his savings into the game.

They actually announced that mac is now included in their main goal! Doesn't help me very much as I'm a linux player, but still. Cool project.
