The Idris is selling slowly actually, compared to previous sales anyway. Game must be doomed.

Hey Derek,

I don't have the old figures, but did they do as well with the anniversary sale as they have in previous years? I too noticed capital ships were just sitting there unsold :)

The vast majority of my funding to CIG has come from donations for Anna. For what it's worth. I don't own an Idris. I do like Shakira.


Is Anna your Org name?

Nope. Anna is the name of my VoiceAttack profile that some generous citizens give me money for using. One guy even gave me a constellation. Which is nice. They really are a very nice and generous bunch.

There are going to be a lot of "nice" backers which goes a long way to explaining why a lot of us think CR is a thieving tosser for taking advantage of them in the way that he is.

We don't have metrics yet, but you can run the numbers yourself via the funding spreadsheet. Just remember that the funding chart isn't 100% accurate since it neither takes into account refunds, nor investor amounts or bank loans. Plus there's been ample evidence of padding it; which some of us assume is a ploy to show interest in the project.
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.

Oh, did they confirm any "official" investors or bank loans?

I had the impression that CR only said backers funding with the possibility of private funding if deemed necessary. I am not aware if it came to that, yet.

They've always had investors. Some (e.g. Bootcha) got their money out. Bank loans are already part of the company filings in the UK. We don't have filings for the US loans, other than information from sources.
