This should've been a clue that Chris had zero interest in a game. He just wanted to make a movie.

yeah, where's the artistic vision? here's another one, the old Braben and CRoberts interview after the initial kickstarter success. Braben has the vision and is on track of the mission on fulfilling technical debt of making the game due to the success of the ED ks. While CR looks wasted and drunk like partying the night before and his beady eyes look like his mind is high on hitting gold never mind its technical debt, while shiftily thinking of ways to siphon off more from ks dupes and backers evolving to the whaling farce. Hard to sense getting a working game out is nothing but the last thing on his mind, where this could be a beginning of thinking up the ponzi shenanigans becoming the CIG marketing monster throwing out scopecreep bait, and failing critical decisions such as dropping cryengine before it was technically and systematically too late.

but surely the industry must all know the project is fubar by now.

Yes but they might be interested in buying a database of gamers willing to pay thousands of dollars for JPEG space ships.

Considering how much our data is worth that is an excellent thought. Considering facebook wants access to all the financials from big banks not including
all the telemetry data in windows.

In the interview with @deantak over at VentureBeat, Chris Roberts mentions yacht a total of 5 times.

Wow! CIG has secured almost $50 MILLION in venture capital for just 10% of its shares.

Star Citizen has also been crowdfunding over $100,000/day since the anniversary sale. By mid June, we will see if CIG is keeping up with its Squadron 42 roadmap.

Yes, that really is WOW! Since it means that Chris has been lying for years, there is no Squadron 42 and CIG would have been bankrupt already without the VC. Despite all the dollars raised resulting in over 200 million until today.

However, something is telling me this is not the point you tried to make  :emot-smuggo:

As we now know, that same month they were closing this $46M deal.

They guys on reddit / drama are in knots trying to discount your past statements by any means necessary. These tweets
sound like very big news.

I know. They don't change their tactics; but we don't expect them to. Seriously, the whole thing could collapse tomorrow, and they'll find a way to justify everything. We just get to lol even harder.

The only thing missing are the credits claiming Chris as the Director and Sandi as Executive Producer. This is what he wants. Making movies.
