Every day hundreds are signing up... it has been a slow uptick of the # of people signing up every day. It is not just the USA but all over the world.

I just don't believe that 2000 people are signing up every day for $77 a piece, and keep on doing this so day after day after week after week after month after month. Not when no other Kickstarter has gotten even anywhere near those numbers of people. Yet Roberts keeps adding a million dollars basically every week?

I'm pretty sure this is just investor money that they're pretending is crowdsourced.

I'm a Star Citizen backer, but I share your suspicions. I'm sorry, but crowd sourced titles like this follow a pretty consistent pattern with how the money comes in. You don't keep up steady and consistent gains over a long period of time.

If I had to guess, I'd say a certain amount of investor money was gained early on, and he's pretending that its rolling in slowly to keep the game in the press. Admittedly a bit of a tinfoil hat theory, but something is definitely fishy here.

Yeah, there's something a bit fishy with the way the money is constantly flowing in. Typically a project will have an intial spike, and then a slowly tapering tail. SC spiked and came down, but it hasn't had a tail, it's had a plateau. It's very unusual.

Nothing fishy... i started with 60$ ship... then i got upgraded to the 120$ ship... then to the 250$.... After some months i got an 110$ Freelancer and a aurora LX for 25$.. then i got a Starfare for 170$

And now total i have paid for a game, that it will never been possible to have without the donations , more than 800$ total...

So most of the money come from original backers
