    Those two should join forces to make an ultimate space autism chariot game that would never come out and even if it did no-one would ever be able to play it for a myriad of reasons.

    It would be amazing.

    You won't sleep at all mate. You will become hyper paranoid that someone could be stealing from your mattress. Of course fire is always a danger. Will you dare to leave your house to to the local shop?

    100+ million stuffed in the mattress can't be comfortable either.

    So, what's the status, aside from all the drama? I haven't been following this for a while. What's the current "official release date" for SQ42? :M

    The website no longer has the "Answer the call: Year", it's just "Answer the call" now.

    So I guess it's whenever you answer the call? Idk tbh.

    To be fair, no-one knows what this was. This came out like a week before April 1. Procedural eggs could be a thing.

    Eggciting.

    Try not to get shell-shocked.

    Surprising comment from you.

    It's old thing, perhaps most easily spotted in other areas of entertainment industry. Say certain dynamics between these corporate crooks and artist for example. In some cases at least, the two are different yes, but also the same. Mirror thing isn't relevant for them like for general population. Thinking of consequences isn't really a thing either.

    These two, some may see high fuctioning fucked up people, some may see Sid and Nancy, or better yet, Bonnie & Clyde. In the end, this may end up in something far more uglier than predicted. It's the structure, it's formed around Roberts and his wife. I don't think there are boardmembers who aren't yes men. So once this starts to run out of steam, no fail saves.

    What is hilarious is that he used CGI in his pitch as an example of gameplay footage.

    Yeah but AAA publishers do that all the time.

    Yeah but Star Citizen is the world's first AAAA game.

    I'm not even kidding, this is an actual sentiment around this thing.

    There's been a lot of claims that the original pitched demo was built for free by CryTek as a way to get CIG to pick the engine. If true, this is all sorts of fucked up and funny.

    But no to take millions from backers.

    Thw word game is inappropriate here. There is no real challenge or meaningful gameplay. Roberts wanted to be the new Gergoe Lucas and failed. Now he will burn millions to make a simulation of space sin that looks like a movie, but it doesn't do anything else. You know what is the saddest part? All the extra knowledge they gained by trying to implement Roberts' impossible demands will probably be lost and ignored, because the actual game is such a trainwreck. No one will be able to say "But Star Citzen proved you can add all these elements together". It could prove if the development process wasn't such a mess.

    Said like someone that does not understand game development.

    Look, they have boxes. You can pick them up. Once the box pickup pipeline is ready, you will be able to stuff your space chariot full of these and then fly somewhere and fill them with stuff, then fly them somewhere else, and manually unload them, and sell them!

    This is an unprecedented degree of fidelity and fun.

    And you do? Do you think that these magic boxes will be acompained with a magic solution for those horrendous low FPS that make the "game" unplayable?

    Of course. Once bind culling and object containers are implemented, you can load as many boxes as you want into your space chariot without it lagging out the server.

    I mean
