hehe this is too funny when you claim you have proven there is no market for a highbudget spacesim and starcitizen makes 35 million dollars (and climbing) before its even released. This is a high quality product but unless you are a hardcore wing commander fan its very unlikely anyone is gonna try this out because there has never been any advertisement.

Star citizen is hardly a normal space sim. it is a massive online project and frankly, if the Name Chris Roberts hadn't been behind this, they wouldn't have even gotten past 50k.

Indeed but that still doesnt mean there isnt a market for highbudget spacegames. It only proves my point that its failure in advertisement and getting people to first of all notice your game thats the problem, not that there isnt a market for it.

If starcitizen succeeds only because of chris roberts then think of his name as as free advertisement.

I wasn't really interested in the "high budget" market.

Advertisement costs money, then the game wouldn't have been free, careful what you wish for.

I found a way to install my download counter script here at wcsaga.com, finally. ;) Look at the first post from Tolwyn, there is now a graphic counter and a link to the raw data table.

Tumbled over this game today by total coincidence, think that this number could easily quadruple when more and more people finding out.

Thanks for all your efforts!

Thanks for your kindly words, it's appreciated! :)
