I thought i might give it a shot, posting this kickstarter project on the forum 6 days left, and allready above 170% percent, so they are definetly going to try to create the game. Whicht is the reason why i thought posting it here to see if they could reach the 4 mio goal.

It is now the most crowd funded game ever and is well on it's way to reaching $5 million, the dev's are doing a 24 hour cast in 8 hours for the last day.

One thing i'm really looking forward to with this, is the modding side of things which has already been stated will be included.

Lastly, and most importantly, there won't be any greed shown by Chris Roberts, you pay for the game and that's it. Not like Cryptic who just want to bleed gamers dry with monotonous gamelplay and new and ridiculous ways to separate you from your hard earned cash. At least Chris Roberts treats his fanbase with respect.

I have to ask - how does a project like this stay funded?

I really would like to know, it seems like if you just pick up the game, then eventually your revenue is going to crumble and your game won't last more than a few years, tops. I've wondered the same about GW2, for that matter, but as I might actually be interested in Star Citizen, the sustainability has me curious.

Let's say 100,000 buy the game when it's new. They like it. They play it. They tell their friends.

Over the next 6 months, 1,000,000 more people buy the game.

Over the 6 months after that, 3,000,000 more people buy the game.

Over the 6 months after that....

You don't have to milk the same customers over and over if your game is good enough to attract new customers. I find it really amusing to have to type it out, too.
