    For how much longer will backers be willing to pony up? That's not a rhetorical question, I'm genuinely curious as to at what point backers will draw the line. It's not just about belief in the project, it's about ability/willingness to put hands in pockets. The sums continuing to be raised seem pretty substantial relative to the active userbase.

    The assertion by many is that the longer the delay in releasing a substantial part of the game, the more chance they will go out of business and run out of money. That's not what is occurring as the funding has increased over time, with two income records just getting broken again despite the negative press. In the meantime, the Star Citizen mmo aspect of the game is slowly getting its act together in terms of gameplay. I did my first mining with a helpful player and it was a lot of fun, although the spelunking needs a bit of work, as I got lost finding the mission objective. Next year they are opening up a second star system Pyro, so 2 down, 98 to go (!).

    How long is a piece of string? This started in Q3 2012. Many original backers have changed as individuals since their first pledges. As someone quipped on reddit, the closer they get to retirement the more money they have...

    From my perspective, I am glad it is being developed. There is no other game out there where you wake up, walk to your ship and take off and can explore outer space seamlessly that is as beautiful and detailed as this game.
