Thread: Squadron 42/Star Citizen (New Space Shooter from Chris "Wing Commander" Roberts)

  1. Squadron 42/Star Citizen (New Space Shooter from Chris "Wing Commander" Roberts)



    Nuff said, I guess?

  2. You stole this thread from epmode. Cold blooded.

  3. Yeah, so this will actually have a 100% offline campaign as well as a multiplayer mode with a pesistent universe. I am SO EXCITED.

    It's also 2 years away.

    Chris Roberts will be funding most of the game himself, to the tune of $12 million or so. The last bit of funding will be crowd sourced, but not through Kickstarter.

    This year has been so great for PC stuff.

  4. Self-funding is a ballsy move these days. Game development is a pretty risky investment. Just ask Curt Shilling.

  5. The Kickstarter clone site is here: http://robertsspaceindustries.com/star-citizen/

    He's looking for $2M in 30 days.

  6. How the hell is Chris Roberts worth eight figures?

  7. The wing commander movie's dvd sales.

    Oh god. He's crazy.

    Prediction: This will fail miserably and will show up on Kickstarter with a much lower goal in a couple months.

    EDIT: Oh, and the upper tier rewards are beyond lame.

  10. I think he's *slightly* overestimating the crowd sourcing potential on this one. I mean, he seems to think $5 million is possible within 30 days.
