A lot of you know Chris Roberts, for those who don’t know him: Chris Roberts is the creator of the Wing Commander Series and Freelancer. After almost 10 years of movie biz Chris is back and wants to make us happy with a new master piece called “Star Citizen”.
The game will be financed via crowdfunding. Goal is to reach 2 million USD. A bit over one million is already in. Here some some words from Chris:
“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated”
The traditional publishers don’t believe in PC or Space Sims. Venture Capitalists only want to back mobile or social gaming startups.
I say they’re wrong. I say that there is a large audience of PC gamers that want sophisticated games built for their platform. And inside this audience, a significant group of people that have always loved space games, and if given a quality one again will be happy to play it.
Please contribute to this fantastic project.
