God, this game is why I have a gaming PC. Holy shit, those graphics. Holy shit, realistic physics. Damn, this game had better not suck.

The Dev is Chris Roberts, who created Wing Commander and Freelancer. How have I not heard about this game before, especially with the money it's been raising?

Isn't Space Citizen a mission to mission space game like Free Space?

No, I don't believe so. The optional introductory campaign operates that way, but once you transition to the full game, it's completely open in the vein of freelancer.

It's looking to be a mixture of Eve Online and Freelancer, with the shit parts of both removed.
Basically, it's looking like it's getting ALL OF MY MONEY.

Next time i get some money in, imma buy one of the packs that come with alpha+beta access.

So very, very keen. Why isn't it late 2014 yet?

Pretty much my reaction when I saw the trailer on Kotaku while I was at work. Oh Jesus does it look awesome.

Yeah, I watched that the other day. A complicated, realistic economy, which I won't complain about. Fortunately, that's one of the parts of Eve that doesn't suck.

I just hope they avoid the Excel Spreadsheet vs. Excel Spreadsheet nature of Eve's combat (at least, that's how I view it).

This is supposedly the hanger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ReiSJ3PZKs&feature=player_embedded

I really want this game though it's sounding a lot like a MMO style game.
