That's what I'm talking about. Fans of Oldman, Anderson, Hamil, Davies, Strong, Gardiner...et al, may well be tempted into a fun sci-fi game if they see it advertised. The cast may...I stress the word 'may', bring in a different audience.

They may have saturated the market but I don't believe it's sold every copy it can. I see plenty of posts around suggesting a lot of people are waiting on a game to be finished before handing over cash as well.

Never underestimate the Powah of Celebrity! There are many an idiot drawn to a famous face or name and compelled to spend money.

You're right... they best should buy the E.T. rights, i heard they're up for grabbing and you surely can't fail with celebrity and an well established franchise!
Maybe he should also start getting movie producers involved, i heard that really got tons of player playing Doom or Hitman.  :wink:

Or the be a bit less sarcastic, names aren't everything. And while i think there are people out there who would buy SQ42 if it's a great game, they've been critical of the whole Multiplayer aspect and chose to wait for sometime after release. Because failing kickstarters and failing old developers isn't new anylonger and bad movie/game adaptations have been mostly the norm, rather than being special cases.

At this point, I don't think it matters what state SQ42 will be released in, or even if it turned out good. What matters is that they are now just doing the bare minimum in order to deliver on the main things from the kickstarter. Aside from the financial brochure (which surprised me tbh) which was a key point, SQ42 represents the final aspect. Remember, as I have been saying for years now, it doesn't what state or shape the final results are in because they are legally protected by the guarantee of performance condition. So they could implement something, even if it doesn't work as expected. The bottom line is that the creators and execs got rich based on lies. The only good part is that they provided jobs for a large number of people over the years.

I am still baffled as to why any investor would put money into this project. All I think can think of is that it probably has something to do with perhaps a movie. Also, as per the other discussion about that aspect, this investor probably has protections guaranteeing that he gets his money back out in some fashion. The fact that they were touting this money as being for SQ42, is a huge Red flag that the investment relies heavily on it's sales performance.
Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Lol, that would really be Freelancer and the Wing Commander movie all over again, but no Microsoft to finish it.

CIG have released the 2018 financials on holiday eve. I am not going to even bother with an analysis (as I did last year for 2012-2017) because the numbers speak for themselves. No way they can get this project 'done' (lmao) without continuing to raise money.

And there's no way they aren't going to continue raising money. Record year, remember?

Record year, yet they're still about $7m loss for 2018. Go figure.  :emot-allears:
