    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    They're reach $19m now... Now aiming for $21m for even more features - https://robertsspaceindustries.com/c...man-19-Million

    We are also excited to reveal the $21 million stretch goal, a major gameplay feature we have been hoping to include with Star Citizen and the culmination of several recent stretch goal unlocks!

    Salvage Mechanic: Salvage isn’t an aside: it’s a career, with its own mechanic, story tie-ins and universe-shaping endgames. Search the galaxy for a host of valuable and interesting secrets using both the flight and FPS components. Discover the secrets of the ancient Hadesians, locate valuable components and cargo… or go down in history as the first to make contact with an entirely new alien race!

    On an interesting note, if you read the article tye pay Kick Starter approx 10%.... So they've earned $2m just from this one project! WOW!

    OK! Watch the first ten seconds of this Star Citizen video and tell me what demographic it's aimed at? I suggest teenage boys, and can give you two good reasons why!

    So they're up to about $57m now via the Kickstarter. People are throwing bucket loads of money at them!

    Here for example is them offering a new ship, the Origin 890 Jump Luxury. And all you have to do is give them $600! - https://forums.robertsspaceindustrie...ept-sale-plans


    The game does look pretty, but the gameplay looks worrying. Look at this guy playing it... does this look like an indepth space sim? (jump about 35s in)

    Some people have created signature images off of it...

    Derek Smart is a game developer who crowd funded Star Citizen when it started development for $250.

    Recently he's got alarmed and posted a number of articles...


    If you have time (it is a long artciels but worth it) this is an interesting/epic read from his blog - http://www.dereksmart.org/2015/07/in...lar-discourse/

    He's forecasting very bad things for SC!


    Here's the epic continuation - http://www.dereksmart.org/2015/07/interstellar-justice/

    ^^ He's offering $1m of his own money to investigate what's going on in RSI

    Seems like an interesting read. I think I'll plough through this.

    "I worked in a factory owned by Germans, at coal pits owned by Frenchmen, and at a chemical plant owned by Belgians. There I discovered something about capitalists. They are all alike, whatever the nationality. All they wanted from me was the most work for the least money that kept me alive. So I became a Communist." - Ники́та Серге́евич Хрущёв

    "Thanks for Playa Girón. Before the invasion, the revolution was weak. Now it's stronger than ever". - Che Guevara

    This is going to destroy Elite.

    If they give the player some crap to do, this game will be a life drainer.
