Star Citizen Crowdfunding Hits $29M

The Roberts Space Industries website announces that the crowd-sourced fundraising for Star Citizen as the PC space combat game has now passed the $29 million mark. This triggers a new stretch goal, and it seems their imaginations are losing pace with the funding, as this just promises to spend it, as "additional funding for the Squadron 42 single–player experience," and this new trailer offers an explanation of the game's single-player experience. Here's word on how fans can help with the writer's block for their next stretch goal, if it hasn't been reached already by the time this is posted: "Now it’s time for you to pick the $32 million stretch goal ship. We’ve removed the winner and the lowest-performing option from the last poll. What will it be now? A massive cargo hauler, a speedy information runner, a dedicated salvage ship? The choice is in your hands!"

With that budget how much of it was licensing (music etc)? How much was for big name V/A? How much for technical complications of memory management with parallel development (PS3/Xbox)?

I get your point tho, i'm skeptical as well - but big budget games *waste* so much money on seemingly frivolous stuff that doesn't really impact the game play a great deal rather it impacts their ability to market the game.

Time will tell i guess and like you i am hopeful they can pull it off.

Not a whole lot, lol... GTA V has the worst, most obscure soundtrack of all the games except maybe the one(s) where they produced much of the music themselves. And there are no big name voice actors in it at all. It's not like San Andreas where they had Sam Jackson as a major character. Looking at Wikipedia, the only person I vaguely recognize is the guy who used to play the little fat kid in Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete & Pete. No, the money for GTA V went to #1 marketing and #2 art production/modeling for the largest open world environment ever.
