Today Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium Games released a new video showcasing future features for the growing space simulator. This time around, the
The scam train's still chuggin' along, eh?
I'm hesitant to call it a scab since they are providing updates and content. On the other hand, I'm fascinated to see people dumping considerable sums of money into an unfinished project. Is it a scam in the traditional sense? I don't think so. You are getting something. But it's quite literally in a state where there is no incentive to finish development officially. They would need to for a console release, however, I suspect they are not so interested in that. I do believe a final product will be released, but it'll happen when funding is petering out.
StarScam still going.... The developers and publishers must be lickin thier lips with all crowd funding giving them constant massage parlour trips, Vodka & Whiskey binges possibly a Cuban cigar or two....
on one hand it's still a playable game for many people out there. So you can't exactly call it a scam. But it's the project that will never be completed.
It’s less a scam and more of a commune. People want this, and they don’t care if it takes decades.
Will this game actually ever release or are they just planning on taking people's money forever?
How are they taking people's money? Isn't this crowed funded? I mean, people pay voluntarily, right?
Yes, and people continue to fund it, so my question stands. Will this game ever see the light of day? $375 million isn't enough? This is going to end up the most expensive game ever made. Or should I say, the most expensive game never made?
The funded money is used for two games atm, not just Star Citizen but Squadron 42 as well. How much of the funding is used for each is currently unknown but they do share a lot of assets.
I just want Squadron 42, before I have to upgrade again.
