Roberts Space Industries Website Back

The Roberts Space Industries Website is back in action after being knocked offline for most of the time since the recent announcement of Star Citizen, the new space simulator from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts. This allows those interested in participating in the crowdfunding for the game, which as so far raised about one third of its two million dollar funding goal. Thanks Arkayas.

I'm a big Wing Commander/Privateer fan, but Chris Roberts has been out of the software business for a long time; His last game was designed for Windows 95. If Chris and his team have so much trouble getting his website to work properly, what hope do we have for his game? BTW, I hate the website's light/dark background; reading it gave me a headache. Dead

As much as I love WC, I am seriously debating if I should support this game, and I'm sure others feel the same. I hate to say it, but Robert's attempt at crowdfunding his game seems amateurish. Why didn't he just use Kickstarter? He claims it's because his own website allows him greater freedom to connect with the fans and offer multiple payment options...that is, when it actually works...but he could've just linked to it. Had it been on KS, I would've already thrown a bucket of cash at it, and I have no doubt they would've hit $2M by now. After all, it only took 24 hours for Project Eternity to hit their $1.1M goal.
