Outer Rim is space combat game in the vein of Wing Commander and X-Wing that is currently being crowdfunded by a New Zealand developer.

The game has been developed over several years by one man, software engineer Gus Matheson, and is already in its final stages of development.

Matheson has launched the Kickstarter to fund the final stages of development, hoping to make a final push to launch the game in March next year on PC and Mac, with a Linux version hopefully coming later.

Players take control of a range of spaceships in frantic mission-based dog fights, using a litany of different weapons and ship abilities to overcome enemies and obstacles.

The game features story and survival modes, which will allow players to fight in a range of different space and planetary locations.
