Yes, I mean, I make that joke comment above not actually working in the industry.  If it was just me now as a general computer tech/person getting a job offer to do whatever from them, sure, lets burn shit down together.  If I actually had a career in game development and cared about continuing to have a career in game development, then things would be different.

Edit:  Also, Slovakia is pretty damn nice.  There are far worst places to not be paid for work.

I imagine a lot of the individual employees find the work fulfilling.  There are teams of artists and developers that spend all their time making really cool spaceships and an expansive universe to fly them around in.

Slovakia is indeed nice and they have real money.  Unlike Hungary, which is only nice. Ohhhhh, I see.

The number of people who will find themselves unemployable after working on a shit/unreleased game is very small. if you're a random codemonkey or an animator, or a 3d artist or a content designer or whatever, you'll be fine because everyone understands that the game you worked on didn't fail because the animations were bad or because the asset batcher was a bit clunky. The worst that happens is that you end up like me, not having worked on a game that actually released since 2015. You go to an interview and people ask about your recent projects and you have to say, "well they were cancelled so I can't tell you too much about them."

I turned down CIG because I'd have been a small part of a big machine. After leading my own project at Wargaming, I didn't want to go back to that, and Perihelion offered me a more senior role with a lot more creative control over the direction of the project.

There are times when morality should supercede desire to work in gaming.

Chances are high Star Citizen never releases in the form promised. With the money they have and time they've spent, they should have released five AAA(AAAAAA) games by now.

I am intimately familiar with doing a job to put food on the table, but being party to one of the most absurd (incredibly likely) scams in the history of gaming is a bridge too far. I would take a job on Duke Nukem Forever 2 before Star Citizen.

On the flip side, it feels morally correct to do anything that transfers wealth away from Christ Roberts (to myself).   why so serious?

I do have them, but not an excess, which explains my mediocre success.

Whether I'd work on this game or not would depend very much on the money and total compensation, but I'm really happy with how IBM is treating me so it would have to be a LOT of money.

Though it seems like I could get a job for Roberts and just phone it in part time for a month or three.

It's safe to say now my previous estimates was on the mark.

Amazing that they got someone to buy 10% shares. The potential return on investment seems like it won't work out considering the current state of the game.

They also now have a web page that directly sources their project management software so you can follow their roadmap changes.

OP is assuming its somewhat of a design-goal of eve to make players happy.
this is however not the case.

After $200 million in crowdfunding, why the fuck would they need to get another $46 million in money from investors?

I realize the answer is obvious, but the more relevant question is who are these idiot investors and can I have their number?

Some dipshit failson in South Africa convinced his music-mogul, billionaire dad to pony up 50M apparently.  Gotta love the valuation of a studio that hasn't released anything, has no real income stream beyond fleecing autists, and is run by a historic failure, at half a billion dollars.

Eight years of dev time and nearly $200 million later, we may possibly maybe see a beta some time this year. Maybe.

$4 million a month in costs is ludicrous.

Sounds like a good excuse for RSI to change the game engine... again.
