I'm a little worried. I would personally just grab the money and vanish to a tropical island.
What? Suddenly le wild 6 Milllion dollars appears and i'm supposed to start building a revolutionary space game from the ground up that rivals that seasoned MMO sacred monster called EVE? Also, those videos look way too good for an indie game producer that needs donations.
Naaaaaa.. Margaritas foar meee.
Its not some indie game producer....this guy created the wing commander games, freelancer, privateer etc..he has alot of contacts in the gaming industry and obviously alot of people trust him enough to make an awesome game since it broke the record for most successful crowd funded game out there. He has been making games since he was a teenager and heavily influenced other games.
So far he has delivered on everything he said plus a little more, plus freelancer was mine and my gaming friends most favourite games ever played, it's where most of us all met. We are already planning on modding our own server, like we could in freelancer, creating your own server, with you own universe, rules, lore and roleplay, playing a smuggler, navy, pirate, police, bounty hunter, freelancer, trader, merc, explorer, anything ya like.
Eve online lacks alot and what it lacks this game has in demo/alpha already, fly by wire for startes, based on player skill not how many skillpoints you have or crappy auto computing controllled ships....or turn based combat..
They will have official vanilla server aswell. Been looking for a gritty out in the dark space sim for a long time since freelancer, so this is perfect for me, even if he makes Star Citizen only half as good as he did freelancer, it will still be awesome
