With a title "Video Game Raised $148 Million From Fans. Now It’s Raising Concerns." you might think that it was a bit of a Star Citizen hit piece from the New York Times.

Development that currently has no end is sight, or even, solid information on when we can expect to get a 'retail' version of the game or its cinematic spin-off Squadron 42.
The feedback from backers is mostly positive, and reasonable.
For Matthew Slattery, 18, a Star Citizen backer from South Australia, the idea of being able to play the game while it was still in development was a big draw. He has pledged about $100 to date.
“Getting to learn the process of game development, communicate with the developers and ask questions directly to the best in the field is a very rare opportunity,” Mr. Slattery said.
