Thumbs up Star Citizen, from the creator of Wing Commander and Privateer

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.

Useful links:
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.

Might be cool. I haven't played his games but I'm aware of his work since I played other games from the same genre

I think this guy is my 'video game hero'. Privateer, Privateer 2, and Wing Commander are some of my earliest gaming memories that really had me completely hooked.

I've more recently played Tachyon and Project Sylpheed to get my fix. But, this might just be well worth the asking price.

Loved Freelancer, and would love to see this developed. I always wanted to be a tramp freighter merchant in an open universe like he's talking about.

haha! we'll see...i really hope he can pull it off...the single player part i'm not concerned with, but the online part could be tricky. he's really encouraging modding as well, so if the community is there the game could stick around for quite a while.
