Star Citizen Passes $35 Million

A new Letter from the Chairman on the Roberts Space Industries website celebrates another funding milestone for Star Citizen, announcing the space combat game has now secured $35 million in crowd-sourced scratch. This plateau unlocks the Drake Herald and they also lay out plans for what will happen if (when?) they surpass the $37 million threshold and are still conducting voting on their $38 million stretch goal. Here's part of the post from Chris Roberts which includes thanks to everyone for supporting the dogfighting module delay, even though not everyone does:

With your enthusiasm and generosity youíre allowing the team and I to go beyond the bare minimum we knew we needed to deliver to make Star Citizen an engrossing experience. As Star Citizen is an open universe and there are so many possibilities the additional funds allow us to increase the amount of content available at the start, have more talented developers working on the various facets in parallel, which will allow us to have a richer gameplay experience from the beginning and allow us to invest in some research and development projects to keep Star Citizen ahead of the curve. Unlike a typical publisher we donít look at this initial funding as bigger profits Ė we look at as allowing us to deliver more of the dream sooner and ensure the online infrastructure and support is as full featured as possible, even during the pre-release period.

I would also like to thank each and every one for your support in my decision to delay the Dogfighting Module. I know it was disappointing for many people, and it wasnít a decision that I took lightly but after much deliberation I decided it was best for the long term health of the project.

i hate it when people judge after a quick look...

yeh but how old are you? because the level of defensiveness on the part of apologists for this is just about hilarious.. crusading forth to defend the honor of this virtuous funding model and so forth - i mean, that kind of oversensitive "HATERS GONNA HATE YALL!!!!" type rhetoric is really common everywhere but in this particular case - yeh, its fucking funny as hell

but whatever, carry on

I've personally seen regular defensiveness, but out of the ordinary amounts of unfounded hate.

It's really sad that the one time a company goes out of its way to be transparent about development the gamer community shits all over everything like each build should be the finished game. This is what development looks like people... no wonder most companies keep things closed except for a few manicured screenshots and clips.

^^ this.
