G'day from downunder - JAFO - 09-26-2015

G'day all,

I learned about High Frontier via the Kerbal Space Program forum. This looks like a pretty excellent project, and I'm looking forward to giving it a shot.

Just one thing worries/bothers me..

You guys are aware that the name "High Frontier" is already owned by Phil Eklund/Sierra Madre Games, since 2010, aren't you? I'd hate to see you get tangled up in litigation, down the track..

Welcome!

Both our game and Phil's are named after The High Frontier by Gerard O'Neill in the 1970s.

We've talked with them, and all is good!  We all want the same thing: to inspire and educate people about life beyond Earth.  (In fact we've kicked around the idea of trying to do some cross-marketing, though nothing specific has come of that yet.)

Please do give the video game a try, and let us know what you think!

P.S. Downunder, you say?  We're in Arizona now, but my family lived in Canberra for almost a year back in 2013-2014.  Nice place.  Very similar to Arizona in climate, in fact.
