Congratulations Star Citizen! Hopefully there'll detail character physics and sliders features for creating an Amazing Star Citizen! :D

I wouldnt be suprised some publishers secretly putting money in the pot to see how the game turns out. If I was a major publisher I would always have my eye on promising Kickstarter projects for future investments/acquisitions.

This is going to be the biggest space game ever and one of the biggest period. And no one is noticing.

I have my Freelancer ship waiting in the hangar.

thehitman; but whats the incentive for other publishers to put money in? it's not like an investment where they can expect a share of the profits.

Yeah I'm not sure what he meant. Publishers would be looking at this in fear and hoping other developers don't follow suit.

These guys have proved that all you need to do is give players what they want, gain their trust and the money will roll in. With the popularity of digital thanks to F2P games, you don't need games on store shelves.
