Star Citizen at $48 Million

There's a 10 for the Chairman Episode on the Roberts Space Industries with more on Star Citizen, RSI's upcoming space combat game. This comes as the counter on the main page rolls over, showing the game has now passed the $48 million dollar mark in crowd-sourced funding. There's a new Letter from the Chairman commemorating that occasion and the new stretch goal it triggers of a new Retaliator commercial. He also outlines their return to their "tradition of stretch goals that improve the core game" risking the possibility of an infinity development cycle if they keep collecting money:

As we promised last time, we’re going to return to our tradition of stretch goals that improve the core game. The ongoing funding keeps the project running on the scale it is today… but we’re also eager to find ways to improve what we’ve already planned. We’ve come up with one for the $50 million goal that we think will truly improve the immersion, and help make Star Citizen a living, breathing world:

  • Alien Languages – Do you speak Banu? We will work with real-world linguists to create distinctive and realistic alien languages for Star Citizen’s three biggest alien races, the Vanduul, the Xi’An and the Banu. No universal translators, no garbled animal noises: Star Citizen’s aliens will be speaking their own authentic languages!

I’m excited about this one… and looking forward to meeting the first fan who learns to speak one of our languages! As always, thank you for your support. Star Citizen would not exist without our backers. Keep spreading the word!
