Star Citizen brings the visceral action of piloting interstellar craft through combat and exploration to a new generation of gamers at a level of fidelity never before seen.

I backed this last night, the way they are modelling the ship systems and how integrated the components are sold me.

I also liked Privateer a lot.

For those of us who didn't know about this, it looks like you can still get in on the action on the website.

sounds like something I would really enjoy playing so I will try to add some funds tonight. as for releasing in 2014, am I the only one that thinks that is a very tight timeline?

I think the internet has just made me really cynical, because all I can think is that since they were running their own website with no oversight, they just dodgied up the numbers to make it seem huge and be all record-breaking and get themselves more media coverage. I mean, wasn't it only just past 4 million a few days ago? Then it gets 2 million in a couple of days?

There's normally a surge at the end, and their kickstarter did do pretty well. The success probably generated hype.

Though the game doesn't really appeal to me and I didn't fund it.

Khel, I'd imagine it's likely because the media coverage from the 4 million + the fact that they've hit the goal and now people are willing to risk the money because it's def coming out is why it did so well recently.

Personally, I only heard about it the other day too, with the 4 mil news going around on it. I'm sure a lot of other gamers are like me and don't exactly troll around looking for things like that, they just go "oh, this sounds awesome, I'll check it out".

That's what marketing is for :P
