Clearly it wouldn't be too much to ask for a small contribution from the fans to stave off the bankruptcy? After all, many have already invested so much into the game, another 20 bucks won't hurt. We all want to see this baby delivered, right?

All they have to do now to release the game is crowdfund enough money to pay off the loan! They're almost there!

edit: might as well clarify further before the chimpouts over mlady: yes yes shes like an 8 or a 9 or whatever no need to get the fedoras out but im sure she appreciates the white knighting

edit 2: wait wait seriously i just reread the page and is she really 15? i thought that he was joking at first but is he actually serious? because take that fucking picture down if it's the case you fucking weirdo what the fuck

I wonder if Chris Roberts feels any amount of shame for wasting that much money and having nothing to show for it?

What the fuck did he do with the 150mil he raised?

Buy/rent a huge office space. 
Hire hundreds of people.
Hire celebrities to voice your game.
Buy all kinds of state of the art equipment, like mo-cap cameras and suits.
Spend all your time flying around the world doing promotion.


Four years later, all your money is gone and all you have to show for it is a demo that has nothing to do with the game you were originally developing.

LOL at the fact he could have overthrown a small South American nation and instituted himself as El Presidente for that kind of scratch.  Instead it got pumped into dead gay voice acting, overpriced vanity trinkets for nerds and shit with good buzzwords he then had no idea how to use.

Just goes to show you can give some people any amount of money and at the end of the day they're going to end up broke.

The rules of running a financially successful business are quite simple:

- keep your running costs covered at all times and don't let them spiral out of control
- the remaining money invest in raising the quality or production capacity of your products/services and
- make sure you keep an adequate "rainy day" fund

All the retarded shit in Star Citizen points to megalomania and completely losing touch with reality, not running things as a business but... I don't even know what to call it.
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’

Just had a good chat with my buddy, I'll have to parse through it a bit, but the tldr is "Every crazy story you've heard is 100% true, but ~75% of the folks there are just getting a paycheck and dont give a shit"

So what does he do all day? Make machinimas? What about those other 25%? Do they believe the hype and or suffering from an existential crisis? How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop cause I just throw them out at that point?

The other 25% are a bunch of Chris Roberts cock-gnobblers apparently and complete yes men.  The leads got to where they are by attrition and are constantly giving conflicting information.  Nobody can decide on set workflows.  The game flat out doesn't work and crashes even on simple stuff, let alone the complex "eight people on a starship" stuff.  And they've got a metric fuck ton of concept artists/hard surface artists whose sole existence is to churn out high res renders of new ships to sell to suckers.  The people who might've made a difference and pushed for actual progress in definable areas are already gone or being fired one by one.

The story of SC's failure would make an interesting book. Journo, can your contact give any information on the companies financial troubles and or impending bankruptcy?
