Interesting. For such a large game, he wasn't asking for much in funding from Kickstarter. With 26 days to go they've already reached the funding goal. It doesn't have any stretch goals listed. So, I'm guessing the extra funding will just help speed up the development of the other parts of the game (multi-player online stuff).

This man is one of my favorite game developers. It will be worth playing. But, of course, you might need to remember some of the games he's developed.


Wing Commander III and Wing Commander IV had live action sequences where some level of choice could affect the story to some degree. But, it was the most fun I've ever had playing something on a PC.

The real crowdfunding happens at the RSI site (2 million minimum up to 6 million stretch) it's part of the total funding, the crowd funding is just there to prove to investors that their money isn't wasted on a product with no market, so when the 2 million minimum is met, they start investing as well.

So not a small amount of money, which is good ,as too many Kickstarter projects are clearly showing a lack of actual production experience by setting the investment bar way too low.

Hopefully, this will make goal.

This isn't a subscription game, by the way.
