Yeah that does look interesting, I'm still waiting for a full game before investing though.

It looks good,  I just worry that eventually the money runs out and it will collapse on itself.  The scope they're aiming for is just too big to be polished all the way through.  I wanted a good space Sim, like Tie Fighter and Wing Commander. The FPS element is cool, but how many games are they going to put in there?

Remember when TES Oblivion came out and we all marvelled at the size?  Then you realized there were 6,282,334 caves that were all the same.
Signature Move:  Completely throwing off the enemy by unexpectedly running out of bounds and exploding...  Always keep them guessing.

looks very promising, if they manage to put in a story into that game, it should be good, and my 1900 dollars worth it , i put into that game.

im looking forward to the industrial city planets, they promised, a year ago.

there were already a vid about it out, but without this seamless flight.

they have it now.

the only thing i am missing now is MECHS, but i have already an info that there will be a 4 legged mining mech, and have  heared about something like mini mechs like armoured suits.

I think for me the fact that this video shows some real progress, and it has allayed some of my fears for the future of Star Citizen.  Too big to fail?, perhaps not.  But they have a very large subscriber network that pumps in cash monthly and folks keep buying those damn sexy ships! Last I heard they had reached USD 113 Million in funding.  I'm sure they are leveraging future game incomes against loans where required too.

Even with Mark Hamill and Co's pay check and the numerous studios they have commissioned world wide, they should have enough wedge to see it over the line.  'Wanna buy a Starship?'  The fans of this franchise seem more happy to spend cash than even the Battle-tech nut-jobs (myself included!)

For me the 'seamless' journey from the starting Space Station to the Meeting point on the distant planet was truly impressive.  Chris Roberts said he would manage it, and it appears he has.

It's gone a long way to restore some of my faith.  My kids were squealing with delight when they saw this Video.  They are looking forward to the 'family-outing' when Mum and Dad take them on a journey to the stars in this ambitious multiplayer universe.  I hope they get their wish, and that I get some return on my 700 pounds spent to date!

  • If at first you do not succeed. Try a bigger Mech.

I can understand crowdfunding but putting in 1900 euro's in a game that is not even released? That is quite frankly insane. Anything over 100 Euro is pushing things IMO.

Depends on your level of disposable income and your desire for the promised product really...

Crunch already has way too many games currently installed and too many in which he is interested that have not been released or just released. He has to draw a line in the sand somewhere. No matter how beautiful, it will take a lot for him to invest in yet another game.

Well, I watched the video a few more times and I decided to give it a go. The scope of their project is huge and it looks like they may pull it off. If I can fly ships and then board other ships / space stations and shoot Shit in a universe that is presented so beautifully, I may be in love.

remember that if you invest anyting in this game it will be except than a starter ship expensive. and you can grind everything in this game although it will be very difficult for expensive ships. you support this game developing if you do.

and if you pay a higher price, you should wait for concept ships, because they have every time a life time insurance. you can then upgrade theese ships to anything you want, preserving the insurance. i still have some cheap lti ships in my buy back wallet. so if you need lti, and there is not one avaiable atm, you could ask me. ( but not 100 at a time ;) )
