Betty?  Did you see that 27,000 dollars in change I had on my dresser?  I can't find it now.

The tires are worn.  The shocks are shot.  The steering is wobbly.  But the engine still runs fine.

It won't be released as long as they can milk that cash cow from the sheeple! :ohmy:

Absolutely insane but as a business owner...I'd probably do the same exact thing. Their product isn't a game but the concept. As long as people keep buying it, they won't stop selling it. At this point they're just seeing how far their customers would go to buy the product. Smart. Screwed up...but Smart.

Never will this be released. How many millions did they raise? How many years in development? 


Don't blame for my name, my parents were hippies and met in Woodstock

$188 Million.  6 years in development.  And a horribly broken pre-alpha build.

This game will probably end up with only three players left running it, the three who've spent that 27 grand desperately trying to beat each other, but with them unable to do so because they've all three got the pay to win cheat code lol.

They should have called the long-promised Squadron 42 expansion 419 Squadron, at least that would have given people a bit of a clue lol

Announcing the all new Star Citizen add-on:

Nigerian Space Prince - You play a character who has inherited 27 Million Space Dollars, but for some inexplicable reason your character does not have a basic intergalactic bank account they are able to use; thus your mission is to find other wealthy people in the galaxy who will lend you their bank account details so you can transfer your fortune to Cloud Imperium Games....erm I mean, erm, oh, let's think.... got it, to transfer your fortune to, erm.... other sectors of the galaxy with their assistance.
