I'm surprised nobody has made a post about this game. Chris Roberts, creator of such games as Wing Commander, Privateer and Freelancer is currently developing a new space combat simulator: Star Citizen!
The project is currently going through a crowd-funding phase to show that there is demand for such a game, and needs to raise at least 2 million dollars in order to proceed. Just 15 days in, the crowd funding has already raised over 2.1 million dollars.
Thoughts? I think this game is going to kick some ***. I've played all of the Wing Commanders and Privateer back in the day. It'll be nice for the newer generation of gamers to get a taste of a quality space sim where you actually fly the ship and not click around some star map.
