Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts recently announced that he was seeking to make a game that would push barriers and innovate. So far, he seems to be doing a great job at it. The videos released on their site show some of the most stunning graphics and detail I've seen in a long time (perhaps because Star Citizen uses CryEngine3). Here's a video that describes what Star Citizen is about:
In the video, you heard about how Roberts wants the game to involve players as much as possible, even to name game objects after players. Another great feature to be expected are the updates that add in content about every two weeks so the game is constantly expanding, as Robets said in the video. So will Star Citizen be the next greatest crowd-funded game out there? A leader in innovation and design for the gaming industry?
