I'm amazed that this game made SO MUCH money. I was a backer, but I figured it would get 2 or 3 million, tops. But I suppose the PC community is really desperate for a good space sim...heck, SO AM I!

So according to publishers and media all PC gamers are pirates therefore this works out quite well as we can pirate a game we've paid for in advance :)

I'm also amazed by just how much funding they got. I think it says more about publishers (aka accountants) poor vision and understanding of their industry.
