Elite Dangerous is still working on expanding the planetary landing system, plus more (including multi-crew ships). Why would you say it's failed to provide that feature?
Guiness Book of Records calls it crowdfunding ;-)kikoodutroa8 said:Crowdfunding and presales are two different things.
I think the Star Citizens community is build on several existing communities (Freelancer, Wing Commander, Star Wars Galaxies, Elite, EVE Online, X-Wing fans...etc. ) that have been waiting for more games of this kind in the last years. With only a limited amount of new games to keep them busy. I would not call them "hidden" - underserved may be a better word. So i think you are close with your assessment that Star Citizen brings together sub-communities.blamo2000 said:
So, this game has a huge following. Do you think it just got lucky and hit some sort of super hype sweet spot, or there was always this big of a community that for some reason stayed hidden all these decades? Or, is this came bringing a fragmented sub-communities together by hitting all the check boxes?
Journalists visiting Foundry 42 UK (e.g. Game Star magazine) have seen quite a bit of SQ42, but are under confidentiality agreements about releasing the information too soon (Presse-Sperrfrist = news embargo until a certain date ?). They report that a lot of work is going on and the parts they have seen are looking very good, but are not completed yet - that was in late summer 2017.Kefo said:Isn't this the third time they have switched focus to SQ42 now? Seems whenever it's time for a big fundraising push it's time to hype the game that's so secret you haven't seen shit of it in years!
