Recommended Posts

He's spent $1,500 on spaceships, including $300 this month to partner with a wingman to buy the 890 Jump, an exclusive space yacht whose "very presence signifies power," according to Cloud Imperium. He's also taking a more active role. Game designers consulted him to create real-looking firefighting outfits.

Gamers' funding fuels meteoric rise of 'Star Citizen'

Is an LA Times article on Star Citizen - nothing super revealing but it does have some office photo's embedded in the article - enjoy 

 

Glad you like the article. Celebrity status hasn't changed me at all. I only have five minutes, Autographs anyone?  :gr_cool:

      Greetings, citizens!
      The last CitizenCon was very eventful.
      But, not every people have time to watch the every presentations, or at least the Opening Keynote, which duration is two hours.
      And I, by tradition, do a brief squeeze of what was on the main presentation - you can call it a trailer, or a retelling. In any case, for those who can't (or don't want) to watch the full Opening Keynote, such a format (in the dynamic “trailer” cut) will work better. Feel free to share this video with those who have not yet watched the presentation!
      Also, you can support me in:
      Citizen spotlight Spectrum Reddit P.S. The explosions make everything better.
      Enjoy watching!
