What's your take on why people give hundreds or thousands of dollars to this project years after it was announced?
When I backed the Kickstarter I put in $45. I was extremely interested in the game but couldn't justify more than that. It wasn't until the release of Arena Commander that I increased my pledge, as I really liked the direction of the game and wanted to support it. Over time I've spent small amounts upgrading to various different ships, buying merchandise, etc. I also gifted some copies of the game to friends and family when there were some offers. My total spend is now $620 - that includes several T-shirts, a CitizenCon ticket, four game packages (two for friends; two for me, including the limited edition AMD package) and an additional ship. In total that works out to about $12 a month.
For that money I've got to enjoy the game as it progress, watch all the community content (hours of videos a week), meet backers and developers at CitizenCon (I got to talk to Chris Roberts, Erin Roberts, Sandi Gardiner and Dave Haddock), go on Concorde, shape the development of the game and make many friends. For me that's incredible value for money.
