starlost: i would think this guy would have 2 million of his own money to start the project. or does someone who has been a video game designer, programmer hollywood, film producer and film director make about as much as the creepy girl at taco bell?
Githerax: Can I pull of multi-trillion-dollar Ponzi schemes in this one?/back to EvE
ZeroCorpse: Look, nobody pays me ahead of time for a book that I plan to write and release in two years' time.
Teufelaffe: ZeroCorpse: Look, nobody pays me ahead of time for a book that I plan to write and release in two years' time.You have no idea how the publishing business works, do you?As for the game, his pre-Alpha looks better than many finished games.
RageAgainstTheMachine: I notice the link has a referral ID.... cunning, subby, very cunning.
mason4300: to anyone that cares, subby is using you to get himself referral rewards if you use his link to sign up for the game.
Chunks McGunks: Teufelaffe: ZeroCorpse: Look, nobody pays me ahead of time for a book that I plan to write and release in two years' time.You have no idea how the publishing business works, do you?As for the game, his pre-Alpha looks better than many finished games.Just watched this. What sort of game is this going to be? MMO, RTS, Sim?
ZeroCorpse: I'm interested. Really, I am.However, I'm not going to pay for a product that won't be in my hands until November 2014. I think the goal is noble, and the concept is sound. I just prefer to put my money into the finished product when and if it arrives.
Lord Bear: I'm in on this, Wasteland 2 and Project Eternity.All 3 have pretty good pedigree, and it doesn't hurt that WL1 and the x-wing games are my favorite games of all time.
redmond24: Looks very interesting. Truly does.BUTCryEngine?[17.media.tumblr.com image 400x300]Putting down $60 on a CryEngine game is basically a bill to pay $200+ for a new PC rig.I'll play the demo in 2014 to see if i can run it first. And for this kinda game, you really should run it beautifully.
LazarusLong42: Man... this is far, far too tempting. $35 for likely multiple days' worth of entertainment, plus Alpha/Beta access?
crab66: Currently at 4.2million it's the most successful game crowd-funding venture in history.Not really.
drake113: Damnit! What part of "I'm On A Farking Budget" do these people not understand?!?
madgonad: I'm stoked that they are allowing boarding and EVA actions including combat. I guess I wasn't the only one paying attention while watching Firefly.
JohnnyC: madgonad: I'm stoked that they are allowing boarding and EVA actions including combat. I guess I wasn't the only one paying attention while watching Firefly.Well... if it hits 4 million it they are. Magnetic boots FTW. :)
