Star Citizen has more than $50 million in crowdfunding money now. I skimmed their goals page and it looks awesome.Chris Roberts (Wing Commander) is working on a open world space sim: Star Citizen.
I can't emphasize how much I'm excited about this game.
Emphasis on Immersion and Exploration.
Constantly expanding universe.
Starship dog fighting.
Support for Oculus Rift.
Player generated economy.
Straight up beautiful spacecraft.
Co-op play, a friend can fly as a wing man or even as a gunner on your ship.
And so on.
Not to mention Chris Robert is THE man for space sims.
I'll probably be doing the Aurora MR Plus because it's the least expensive ship that comes with Beta Access. I want to play as soon as possible, but I don't think I've ever spent more than $10 on a game, so it will be a "large purchase" for me.
Have any of you pledged? What did you get and why?
