It's relying on funding from individuals. I doubt it will see the light of day in the form described. It will be relying on normal folk to keep throwing money into a development pit against promises that continue to move backwards. Get excited I it gets to a playable beta form, until then watch and wait patiently.

He has a cap on what he will take from players(two million, which he will reach). He has investors, hes just proving there is indeed a passionate audience that will play.

 

Hell, I won't give to a kickstarter as they usually don't go anywhere, but he's got a year of developement down, it looks good, and a thirty dollar pledge gets me the game and a ship! I could do the smart thing and wait for the game to come out and spend 59.99 or whatever games will be going for two years from now, but I'll take the gamble.

 

Plus that guy basically got me into games, with wing commander so I'll throw him 30 bones. Hell his games are better than most if not all the crap I've played in the last ten years.

This seems almost too good to be true.

I really hope this works out.

I know, I agree, but I had to take the fact thats its the developer of my all time favorite game, and he's using an awesome engine as opposed to going for the "accessible to all rigs out there" approach, and add in some joystick action again, and I was sold.

 

-I'm gonna try a new strategy with this game however. I'm not going to fantasize about all the features so that I don't hype myself into a frenzy over thing's the game probably won't have at launch(I did that so much with SWTOR, thought it would have awesome space, awesome crafting, guild wars, and world pvp and on and on, I kind set myself up for a letdown)

Nope, just gonna patiently wait, and maybe watch some beautiful footage of spaceships doing their thing.

Promises are easy as words cost nothing.

usually the more people promise, the less they are able to deliver. This just seem too grand a vision, without much money to back it up.

i would say cautious optimisim is required. lets just follow this and see what exaclty they do with it.

 If he gets the funding then I think he can create something new, yet old school. Maybe at first it won't even have half the features he talked about, or they will be primitive, but in an online type of game it will contuine to develop.

I've seen some folks who didn't like the online thing but offline games hardly ever get continuing development after launch. Maybe some DLCs and a few bug patches and that's it. Online games(mmos) get expansions and new features. I can see this game maybe staying around as long as Guild Wars or Everquest. If he can get his vision done. Then there was that wing commander movie.....

 

Anyway since this is a mmorpg.com forum: This game has failed. As you can clearly see from these xfire stats noone is playing it. I've even gotten bored of it already. Therefore game is bad. *gets up on a ladder* My logic is superiorrr!!!!

Ahh, don't judge to harsh on the wing commander movie lol, alot of writers make horrible movies. M Night Shamalan makes six sense with lots of supervision, movies a success than he makes-the village, lady in the water, the happening, signs, all horrible movies, cause he had complete control.

Hell, if George Lucas would have had absolute freedom with the first three starwars movies, oh man, it would have been terrible(he wanted han solo to be a blue lizard man!?)

IT? Great movie, but the book is wierd as hell, has a giant alien turtle in it? Glad he wasn't allowed to put all the extra wierd crap in the movie lol.

The acting in wing commander was worse than the acting in the cutscenes in the game lol.

Lol. True. I bought my first high end PC with Wing Commander 1, and regulary updated(bought a new one) with almost any new game from him. :)

And never regretted it. And i guess i have to buy a new PC again, when this baby will release. And i cant wait for that day.

I have guarded optimism regarding Star Citizen. While it looks good in a trailer even if it is game engine made, I have to wait to see what features will remain in game and how "open" the world really is. I was not one of those "fans" of Wing Commander series as it was nothing special to me at the time. While it was good for a space game, I never found it especially ground breaking nor near to what the hype claimed it to be a the time. It seemed it was attempting to cash in on the popularity of Star Wars but in many cheap ways. Hopefully, Star Citizen will have more "realism" and less hype.

 

Let's party like it is 1863!

The wesbite makes it sounds great and like it is ready to break off from the pack.  Anything different would be nice.  There have been so many claims from games that don't come close to delivering.....  Tabula Rasa, FFXIV, Vanguard, etc.  Good luck to them >)

I really wish it wasn't going to be another 2 years before we even see anything. I want a new freelancer so bad right now. I mean sure I'll wait since I have to, but it's still really annoying knowing it's going to be so long.

I think they're requesting investment additional to the crowdfunding, which is more "pre-sales = market est."?

But agree with being careful on this, with 2yrs before release, that's a very long time to lock your cash up; it makes me think it's a great GENRE to back, but not a great project to back because of the time-frame: Apart from waiting, what else occurs during that time. Edit: And 75% of KS are delayed stat.

That said, lots to be positive about as a spectator and speculator.

I've been thinking about what the perfect MMO would be for quite a while. This game is what, for me, the spaceflight/combat portion of my perfect MMO would be. In fact, I feel a little violated as it feels like the design for this game was ripped out of my brain.

Cool, and it's B2P.  Maybe I'll give it a shot.  Sounds fun.
