I posted something brief about this in Other Games, but feel it deserves its own thread.



http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/star-citizen/

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:

http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/a … s-roberts/

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?

The only game I've seen that I'm willing to pay to help fund.

As I said in the other thread any game that combines Wing Commander and Freelancer gets my interest!

Only problem is now having to wait for this game to be released...

Edit: Just looked at that latest bit of info they released, and am already loving the details they are putting in, in terms of the ship designs and manufacturers in game, still got the sets of blueprints I got with Wing Commander and it's stuff like that make these games so awesome.

I approve this thread and will put down $10 soon. More later if it looks like it's still in the works.

Recently hit $2.5million

Chris has also set up a Live chat thing on his site, where he's on for an hour or so each night to ask him anything. He answered my question about the possibility of friends pooling their resources and focusing on one ship between them instead of seperate ones. Said it's a possibility that he didn't think of.

I like this kind of involvement.

There's also been a revision lately of the stretch goals:

Just set up a new referal system with random prizes.

So if you're interested and haven't pledged... Do it!

Also, they're almost at $3million. Might get it within the next couple of days.

Over night we reached 3.8million, which I guess was from the IGN story on the biggest pledge ship.

Almost at $4million, Kickstarter's also almost at $1.5, which means more shit all round! Exciting times.

Looking better and better, that ship design is just the sort of thing I've been looking for from this game.

They go all the way to 5.5million, but I'm not sure if they'll be achievable after the crowd-funding ends:

If we raise 5.5m we get the Bengal Carrier from the trailers:

Hard to get, but good for clans/guilds/etc.

Imagine taking that on...
