Star Citizen Hits Kickstarter Goal

The Kickstarter Campaign for Star Citizen has hit its $500,000 goal after just four days of fundraising for this upcoming space simulation from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts. The Roberts Space Industries Website now shows the game has raised $1.35 million of its overall two million dollar goal (which apparently does not count the half-million from Kickstarter).

The fan questions he began answering over on Reddit just reaffirmed to me that it will be the best game of all time as soon as he answered the question "Will it be like Freespace?" with pretty much the answer, "Yes, it will be like Freespace, but my original vision before I sold Digital Anvil to Microsoft." That was enough for me.

Oh, that and the fact he said you'd be able to have more than one player on a Corvette/Destroyer manning different stations on the Bridge.

I presonally hated Freespace. It sucked major balls. Glorified action game with thinly disguised (and badly implemented) RPG elements and horrible space 'sim' feel. There I said it feel free to stone me and whatnot. I had a bad feeling about this game, now its compounded by this news blurb.

Freespace was NOT a space sim.

Was XWing or TIE Fighter a space sim, in your opinion?
