And The Sky Full Of Stars
Well the crowdsourcing period for Chris Roberts' space sim Star Citizen ended today, and it broke records as the highest-funded game to date, raising a combined total of $6,238,563, beating out the previous record of almost $4m raised by Obsidian for Project Eternity.
As I said before, this is the first crowdsourced game that I have personally contributed to, and I had no problem doing so. All of the stretch goals were achieved, and the Star Citizen (persistent online multiplayer) universe will launch with 100 star systems.
I guess the big publishers were right, there really is no demand for a top-end space sim anymore...
