Found this gem on another forum. I am extremely curious:
http://robertsspaceindustries.com/start/

There's also:
http://robertsspaceindustries.com/activate/

Considering Freelancer is my favorite game of all time, I'm hoping we might be seeing a new project along those lines. Only a few days left before we learn more!

Oddly on that second link clicking in the Footer box repositioned the sort of cloudy thingy in the background.

Expect your hopes to build and then be dashed as you find out it's some browser based casual game, full of aliens with big heads. Oh, and the tooth fairy is real either.

Except somewhere in the site is this concept art:

A drawing doesn't prove the existence of a lass in a tutu who gives you money for your failed dentition.

On the other hand, I do believe that I desire the game you think it may be just as much as you do, except I haven't had a good day at work and my blood sugar is low, so all the world is shitty until I get something to eat.

That kinda looks like a top-down scroller from Epic MegaGames circa 1996.

It looks like Nar Shaddaa

So the countdown has elapsed and revealed a fairly simple code page, which leads to a registration page:
http://robertsspaceindustries.com/enlist/

Once in, you can participate in the forums, which are slowly filling up. There's also a few tantalizing pages and some activity from the devs, though I haven't seen Roberts himself post there yet.

In roughly a month I'm guessing we'll know more. Exciting times!
