Seems to use CryEngine 3, will be PC only and will be released in 2014 if all goes well, with Alpha and beta after 12 months and 20 months respectively.
Depending on the funding, different aspects of the game will be completed for launch. They're pretty much at their $2million target now ($500k from a Kickstarter page) and as a result, there has been some design info on the ships released today:

I've already bid $60 and if the ability to fund sticks after the current day-limit, I can see myself upping that over the next few months for a bigger ship. Support for this game seems pretty crazy and the forums are pretty alive with people giving their ideas, crap or not.
Anyone else interested in this?
