just passed 2.3 million 30 minutes ago. expanded stretch goals are up on the rsi website and the kickstarter (more info is here).

it looks like we'll hit the 750K kickstarter stretch goal (repair bot) on monday, and the 2.5M main stretch goal (new bomber) on tuesday. if you haven't already, check out the spectrum dispatches for some universe fiction and the time capsule for some universe backstory.

This should be great. The idea of combining what made Wing Commander and Privateer great games during their time with the advances in PC technology we've seen lately could make for something pretty exciting.

yeah, i'm sure they'll be posting some goodies on their website...i'll keep the thread updated as it comes along. i think people are most interested in new gameplay videos that show off the active hud, and concept artwork of the ships.

alright:
  • we broke 2.5 million last night at 8pm et, so the game will launch with an additional ship: the anvil aerospace gladiator (it's a bomber). ten lucky backers will get one for free.
  • we've broken the 750,000 stretch goal on kickstarter long ago, so now everyone who has backed gets a free repair bot.
  • there is a live chat feature that was added to the rsi website if you want to chat amongst your "star citizens".
  • finally, chris roberts will be answering questions again on reddit in 20 minutes from now (1pm et). i'll update with a link when it goes live (presumably he'll be there all day). get those questions ready!

the reddit ama is now over, but there are plenty of answers to go through!

It's been a while, but we're coming down to the final few days. Here's a goofy video from Chris Roberts:


Here's the latest rundown:

damn, that is some exciting plans so far

also, I NEVER say this: I may have to build a new pc AND buy a high end monitor if this game goes as planned... it's essentially the space game I've waited two decades for (nearly 20 years since my first favourite space game, Privateer). I will also not be seen online for quite some time, probably take time off my day job, and buy a really big bag of... never mind

basically, this game is going to ruin my life LOL

edit: oh yea, it's funny cause, this game is called "Star" Citizen... but I'll be like, the worst citizen ever, in real life...
