Gunship: First Strike

This new venture is a SciFi combination card/counter game in which each players tries to take out the other's carrier with a Gunship and space fighters.  Different weapon system combinations are available, with varying reliability and damage potential.  Customise your ships and pit them against one another.  The game is now well past its minimum pledge amount, and has met a number of stretch goals to include a bunch of extra content cards.

The Dice Tower review here is pretty descriptive:

and at the Escape Pod games website here: http://escapepodgames.com/
And/or pledge up at the Kickstarter page here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1291246114/gunship-first-strike

I'm pretty tempted with this- looks like a fun game, my only concern would be re-playability and the potential for it to get old quickly.  The campaign rules to come may address that.    In any case, the designer's diary of how he developed this game over 20 year is a pretty great story.
