Re: Star Citizen - Chris Roberts' new game

Three things.. there are still many fans of the space combat sim genere and there has not been a decent one for a few years now.

Second, it's Chris Roberts and many people who were kids and teenagers back when Wing Commander and Privateer was huge fondly remember those games but are now firmly established in their work lives and some may be very successful easily shelling out 1.000$ or more to get this going.

Third (and this is an even bigger assumption on my part).. Kickstarter and crowdfunding in general is also mainly successful because people can directly support small companies about products they really want to see instead of waiting for the xth game from a big studio franchise. It's everlasting David vs. Goliath battle and people feel good supporting David.
