Default Star Citizen

From the guy who made Wing Commander, just announced today, they're trying to get crowd funding off the ground currently but I really expect them to hit it, they're $166,000 in and this is just day one. It looks absolutely gorgeous, and I need it in my life now.

Looks interesting. Trailer runs a bit too long with a lot of nothing happening, though. Does the game play just like Wing Commander? 'Cause I haven't played that game since, what... 1991? Been a while.

I thought the same thing about the trailer, but I don't know. It's just so beautiful that I didn't care. I want it.

Really don't know too much about the game yet other than that trailer and what I've read, apparently the action is supposed to be very intense, but there are other avenues you can go down, you can be a merchant, explorer or what have you. The stuff I've read is intriguing though, such as the ability to say, in a larger vessel, run from one sub system to the other manning them, Millenium Falcon style.

The concept is incredibly interesting to me though, so I hope this will turn into something great.

If it has a compelling universe to explore and will let me focus on exploring it, then count me in.

So it sounds closer to Privateer then Wing Commander and that is a good thing.

So this game is now funded, getting close to 2.5 million, which is awesome, I cant wait to see more about this as it develops.

So, haven't posted in this thread for nearly a year, here's a long video of some gameplay (it loops, mostly pieced together stuff from other videos.) it also explains a lot of the systems. I am super hype for this game.

So this is currently at 41.66 million in funds raised entirely through crowd funding. I kicked in my bit finally yesterday and got to look around at my ship in the hangar module. They've got stuff going on at PAX this weekend so maybe Sals will get to try it out for me and make me sad.

Also here's my ship:

I've slowly built up funds to upgrade my ship to something much more cool, it even came with a snub fighter that you can put in it's hold!
