Sign up for an account now to get early access to the campaign (that's kind of a weird concept) and $5 any reward tier. So for example, get the $40 rewards for a $35 pledge.

Oh, fig.

That's a place with a sketchy history, at best.
Yeah a fan just posted this awesome news over on the Starflight facebook group:

What's really interesting is that it appears to involve original SF1&2 lead designer Greg Johnson!!

Their Fig campaign is currently not public yet as they are assessing interest. Yeah admittedly I'd never even heard of Fig until now. Just when I thought i'd heard of all the crowdfunding sites lol.

Guess I better add this to the Starflight related games list asap haha!

Oh and FYI looks like Greg & Anthony have been listening to all us fans complaining about the lowest physical copy tier being too damn high (eg 125 USD + 25 USD int shipping)! He's now added a boxed copy of the game as a 40 USD addon to any existing pledge so I've just added it to my digital pledge giving me a grand total of $80 USD which is way cheaper and more around the price of competitors. Now I get to have a nice boxed copy of Starflight 3 after all! :)

Bit worrying though as they've shot up another 100 grand to 301 thousand now but that took like 10 or so days. So they're still not quite half way to the 800 grand funding requirement and there's only 16 days to go! Maybe we won't be getting the sequel we've all waited so many years for. :(

Well it looks like it was all for nothing sadly. Just over a day to go and the Starflight 3 crowdfund is barely over halfway. 30 years waiting for a sequel and its fails due to not enough media attention. So many thousands of SF fans out there (SF1 was apparently the first ever game to go platinum with 1mil sales back in the 80s) that never got to hear about this. Such a shame!

But there's still hope as Greg & Anthony said in a recent podcast that they'll look at improving the demo and may try a crowdfund again in the future or secure a publisher. If you're a big Starflight fan and you come across this thread long after it's too late, come join the starflight facebook group and they'll let you know the next time anything happens with SF3 (if there's a next time *sigh* ) plus the group is following a rather impressive Starflight 1 remake from a ex-bethesda employee so all is not lost for us old SF fans!
Does this project relate in any way to the original SF3 project?

Nah that was a Starflight 3 project made by fans that never got finished. This one was actually an official new Starflight sequel by SF1&2 original lead developer Greg Johnson. And it's now failed.. such a shame. Hopefully they try again with a better demo to show off down the track.

If you're interested in the old SF3 fan project though I'm currently doing a video series playing some of the rarely seen private alpha demo builds of SF3. Took years to get my hands on them and get them working. The're pretty cool!
Blake00: And it's now failed.. such a shame.
It is a shame. With ToeJam & Earl about to release in the next few months maybe they'll revive this one. It needs to be made.
People need to pick their battles with kickerstarters. A lot of them sure do fail these days.

Yeah I've sent msgs to Greg and Anthony telling them that they should build a list of all the reporters they speak to about TJ&E and then use those connections to promote the next SF3 attempt. Mainstream media completely ignored them last time so they need that food in the door the popular TJ&E gives!

BTW guys all is not lost in the starflight world. There's a really great Starflight 1 remake being made right now:

And there is also a cool Genesis mod for Starflight The Lost Colony being made too:

News and updates on these projects is being posted at:

Good'ish' news guys.. we've finally had some official word from HumaNature on the Official SF3 discord channel. Here's what they said:

Blake00: Hey everyone! This is Matt from HumaNature Studios!

As you know the FIG campaign failed to hit its goal mid last year, and unfortunately the team that we were working with has had to move onto new projects. We're continuing to try to figure out how we can make this game a reality though -- we know you all are excited for a SF3 and we want to make it happen!

As you know, we have TJ&E launching March 1st, and that's our main priority at this exact moment, but we're hoping we can figure out a way to get either a new campaign or figure out a private financing situation for SF3, or perhaps adjusting the style to something perhaps more retro to get the cost of production down
I like the sound of it being retro. I didn't really connect with the 3D demo they showed last year.

Well here we are 3 years on and unfortunately there hasn't been another attempt at a Starflight 3 game crowdfund or a new demo. However recently the first ever Starflight Anthology book was released and to celebrate that occasion something really cool happened! I run the Starflight fan communities so as a 'thanks' I got invited to take part in a group video podcast interviewing non other than Starflight lead dev and creator Greg Johnson himself!

I was a nervous wreck as I don't normally do live stuff, and I think I was the only non-American on there so people were probably wondering what I was saying half the time lol, plus on top of that my giant 46" screen was glaring on my face making me look like a bloody ghost haha.. but in the end I had a blast as it was so cool to talk to one of the creators of a game I played so much as a kid, not to mention getting thanked by him for my Starflight community work! Greg was a super nice and humble guy and he told so many great stories about creating Starflight, and his very popular ToeJam & Earl console games, along with his consultation work on the Star Control games and Spore which many of us didn't know about! He even discussed the possibility of a Starflight and Star Control crossover game which would be pretty crazy! And sure enough he confirmed that the original Starflight games were heavily influenced by Star Trek heh.

He also confirmed that the dream of Starflight 3 is not dead and that just a week ago he was on the phone with someone trying to secure funding for it. He talked about his dreams of what the sequel could be and he showed openness to trying another crowdfund campaign. We did our best to assure him that the Starflight fan community is in a WAY better state then it was back in 2018 when they last tried the crowdfund as back then all the big old Starflight forums were gone and there was only around 100 people in my 'new' Starflight Fans Facebook group so there was just no one to friggin tell about it! That's up around 400ish members now, plus I've since created a Starflight Fans Reddit group which is closing on 100 now, and best of all there's the Official Starflight 3 Discord I help out on as a moderator which is now up to a massive 800ish members, so that's over a 1000 starflight fans that weren't around in 2018 so we're getting there! The games sold millions of copies back in the day so there's certainly still plenty of long lost Starflight fans out there though! If there's any Starflight old timers lurking around here I hope you come join the gang! :)

Anyway, here's the video podcast if anyone is interested. I posted a comment on youtube with timestamps of interesting topics should people wish to skip to stuff that interests them...

There was more I wanted to say on there but yeah.. obviously the podcast wasn't about me haha.. but I got to say most of what I wanted. Really the only big thing I didn't get to say on the podcast was that I'm excited to read the new Starflight - Tales From The Starport Lounge anthology book (I've ordered it from Amazon but it hasn't arrived yet as it's probably on a slow ship heading for Australia lol!). I'm not a huge book person but I just had to get this as like I said earlier in the stream video it's amazing how playing a game and reading a book about an adventure set in that same game universe really enhances the experience. The game makes you love the book more and helps your imagination visualize the aliens and places they'll go to in the book. While vice versa the book makes you love the game more as it adds so much depth to the game universe and makes you crave going on your own adventures similar to the ones these new characters your reading about are going on. They both really buff and lift up each other to a whole new level forming this equilibrium of awesomeness haha! I had that experience with the Starflight manual short stories as a kid, and I had it in the years since with other games like Elder Scrolls Oblivion, Witcher, and the X Universe series space games that all have novels or short stories set in the same universe. So hopefully I'll like the new book and get to have that experience again with Starflight! Once thing's for sure, I already know I like the cover haha!
