Where are the SC mavens to dispute this Forbes article? Always seemed like a scam to me....
Interesting read and especially those nuggets of knowledge about his bat shit crazy wife.Have participated in the free fly events but the article is correct in many ways. I honestly believe at some point the well of money will dry up and they will have to release something. But again I ask, if 1.1 million folks have backed the game then how many more copies of an incomplete disjointed vision will new people buy? Game was always going to appeal to a niche audience and Roberts has let his grand vision get the better of his common sense.Finish the solar system you are working on then release. If you wait for 100 systems then none of the current backers will live to see the results. 8 years in you have 2 planets and some moons for 300 million.......

What I don't understand is the absolute immense, Viagra fueled hardon people have for seeing this game fail.
Shh! They have tools.These tools are the hardest thing ever built by a development studio. They are, and it's taking a long time and a lot of money to build them.But don't despair! Once they finish the tools, they can just leave the mainframe processing overnight using the tools, and it'll pretty much finish building the game by itself! The tools, man. The tools.

Holy Shit, there was a LOT of crap in that article I've never read before. Sandi is a stalker?So this guys gonna get sued for Libel...because if he doesn't, its almost passive aknowledgement of it all being true.Just, wow lol
"Up to a point, Roberts has been transparent about where the money has been going. He released years’ worth of financial statements last December. But he won’t say how much he or other top Cloud Imperium execs have made from the project. His wife and his brother both work in senior positions at the company."I've been pointing this out ever since we were told Sandi and his brother both having key exec positions for which neither of them were aptly qualified for. That was probably one of thee first comments I ever made about the game and the people developing it. Sure, he's transparent about the money being spent on the game, but why hide how much you, your wife and your brother are making? Pure rubbish and one of the main reasons he's going to end up in jail unless he can justify everyone's "salary".
