Welcome Star Citizens!

When I was 15 years old kid, one of my favorite games for my Amiga 500 was Wing Commander. Damn, that game was like playing Star Wars movie! It had fancy 3D graphics way ahead of its time, awesome story with cool animations and its creator Chris Roberts became my idol. I was never hooked up on any other space sim since then.

22 years later I saw a Kickstarter campaign for Star Citizen and I was sold immediately. It just got everything no other space sim got for last twenty years and it was obvious after the first ten seconds of the trailer. This was the ultimate space game I and immediately pledged without even reading their Kickstarter page. I was not the only one and Star Citizen has become most successful crowd funded game of all time.

So it was logical that one year later, when we were preparing our own Kickstarter campaign, Star Citizen was our role model. You learn from the best. So you can imagine how happy we were when Chris Roberts appeared on the list of our backers, and you can’t even imagine how it felt when we received an email from Chris himself. He was telling us that he likes our stuff and since his team is using Cryengine as well, they would like to cooperate with us and share some technology! Who would have thought about this 23 years ago when playing Wing Commander?

So to to make long story short – we will share some of our tools with Star Citizen team and Deliverance will most likely have some tech from Star Citizen as well. Hell yeah!

And if you don’t believe me, just listen to man himself: “It’s a rare treat when a Kickstarter announcement genuinely impresses and Kingdom Come: Deliverance has done just that,” said Chris Roberts at Cloud Imperium Games. “Kingdom Come doesn’t just look like a great game, though: it looks like something we on the Star Citizen team could learn from. The characters and outfits I saw working in-engine in the trailer impressed me so much that I contacted the team to talk about what was going on under the hood. Star Citizen doesn’t need peasants and knights… but it does need a robust character creation system for the persistent universe. And that technology is exactly what Warhorse is building for the CryEngine. The good news is: the team at Warhorse isn’t just an incredible talented group of people… they’re also kindred spirits who are willing to share the work they’ve done! We will be sharing with them the tricks for working with CryEngine we’ve learned over the last 18 months and they will be letting us in on the secrets and the tech behind what they’re doing! I’ve always said that independent developers should stick together, and the potential good for both games that can come from this unofficial partnership is proof positive!”

      Finally got around to reading this.

      Wow, that's amazing. This sounds so underwhelming but seriously, I teared after reading it.

      Two of my most anticipated games have just gotten better; I am ecstatic.

    2. Creator Jared Eastman on February 20, 2014

      I saw the game before but did not pledge, waiting till release to see how it would fair since it was over the initial goal.

      I am a Star Citizen backer and since I read about both teams sharing tips and tricks, that is what prompted me to pledge. Any information shared between game devs is bound to make both games better so I applaud both of your teams!

      Keep up the good work!

    3. Creator Jay Balch on February 19, 2014

      You can thank Chris Roberts for steering this me to this project. Didn't know it existed til just now. I am a SC backer & someone who has logged an embarrassing amount of hours on Skyrim. This looks right up my alley. I am now a Knight.

    4. Creator Oleksiy Katrysh on February 19, 2014

      Glad to be here, Dan ;)

    5. Creator Kristan Alicesun on February 19, 2014

      Glad to hear of your collaboration! I just backed & am looking forward to the development process. Take Star Citizen as your guide & it'll be a fun ride. :~)

      BTW, for early access to the beta will that be sooner in the process than the Steam early access that people have getting recently? Or will it be basically the same?

      And does the Knight (digital) tier only get a viewing link or does it get to download the file? I'm assuming the second since that's what's on the front page & I know the tier descriptions on the side can't be changed.

    6. Creator Chris Patterson on February 19, 2014

      That would be me. I had this on my "Remind" list, but took Chris' recommendation to heart, and I'm in for a little :)

    7. Creator David Ross Watson on February 19, 2014

      I backed before the plug, so I guess Star Citizen's just have good taste. ^-^

      I am so happy to hear you'll be exchanging CryEngine tech with each other! That is brilliant news.

    8. Creator Andrea Molino on February 19, 2014

      As a backer of both games this is simply awesome

    9. Creator sinisterz on February 19, 2014

      Star Citizen Backer here! Good work lads!

    10. Creator Arthur Franklin on February 19, 2014

      Thanks for welcoming me, but I have been here for a couple weeks now. Your game shows some serious promise, and I will love the games as I get them.

    11. Creator David Höfle on February 19, 2014

      For the verse

    12. Creator Taisabakki on February 19, 2014

      Same here! I am really happy, that Chris Roberts made this post... otherwise I would not have found this wonderful project! I love it! And I relly like, how much thought and love goes into details!

    13. Creator Mad Squ on February 19, 2014

      Also came here from the ´verse. Somehow I missed this project until now. Looks really like something cool. I just hope the world will feel big enough though (did not play RDR, because it´s f00kin console crap, so I have no reference). But then the Witcher levels also where not too big as well. Anyways, I am looking forward to the game and I hope it will turn out as everyone hoped.

      Cheers!

    14. Creator manicus on February 19, 2014

      Another Star Citizen here. The gaming community really needs a good realistic medieval game, so this is perfect! (We have a glut of fantasy titles)

    15. Creator Philipp Leitner on February 19, 2014

      That's great news for the gaming community!

      And I am now a Rear King Admiral ;)

    16. Creator Richard Si on February 19, 2014

      Glad to back both amazing projects!

    17. Creator Trevor Evans on February 19, 2014

      Star Citizen backer here, glad the promoted your page and vs versa. The environment looks amazing! Keep up the good work!

    18. Creator KenO on February 18, 2014

      Another Star Citizen backer here: I just backed KC:D. Great! Now I have two awesome games that I can hardly wait for...

    19. Creator Ranger Raphe on February 18, 2014

      As both a Star Citizen and Kingdm Come pledger, I approve of this cooperation!
      w00t!

    20. Creator Tiberius Thorn on February 18, 2014

      Live long...and prosper?

    21. Creator Simone Tiozzo on February 18, 2014

      You know guys, there are two types of videogames I like to play: sandbox sims and rpgs. And what I like in both of them is when I can have freedom of action, open, living worlds, when I can shape my own destiny the way I want.
      And there are two settings I like most: sci-fi and fantasy.
      In my gaming life I played lots of:
      - fantasy RPG's (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, I am a pen and paper DnD 3.5ed and 4ed player, the witcher 1 and 2)
      - sci fi RPG's (Mass Effect 1 2 and 3, Star wars KOTOR)
      - sci fi sandboxes (X2, X3:return, X3:TC; I am a Star Citizen Backer)
      - space sims (wing commander V Prophecy).
      What I really missed was a proper fantasy sandbox (with a realistic feel, not like TES saga).

      I really look forward to playing your game guys, so good luck with the development!

    22. Creator Tim on February 18, 2014

      This is awesome guys. The two games I have backed on kick-starter working together, this is going to be truly epic. Can't express how awesome it was to read this on the way to work this morning!

    23. Creator David on February 18, 2014

      This is why I signed up! Great to see companies working together to push the boundaries and make AMAZING games. Competition with cooperation to bring out the best in both groups.

    24. Creator MichaelB on February 18, 2014

      For a brief second I imagined landing my spaceship somewhere in the forests of KC:D.
      Seriously, good news for both projects!

    25. Creator Arrhen Knight Ahumada on February 18, 2014

      Look forward to Act I!
      Special thanks to Chris Roberts for pointing us Citizens this way!

    26. Creator DavidM on February 18, 2014

      This game looks freakin amazing - even now. Thanks to Chris Roberts I found this game. Now I'm a Rear Admiral (Star Citizen) and a Knight (KC:D). :D

    27. Creator William Littlejohn on February 18, 2014

      Beautiful! This is what I like to see in the gaming community/industry. Welcome Star Citizens.

    28. Creator Philippe on February 18, 2014

      That's just amazing! I'm backer of both games and I'm proud of it. Today, big video game editors are fighting but you both are bringin peace to bring the best to your projects...this is the evolution of video game industry...collaboration and not destruction! Good work...and I can't wait to see both games.

    29. Creator Dane Barrett on February 18, 2014

      lol@ the CD32 video. I loved my Amiga CD32. The only video game console I know of that failed because the demand for it was too high :)

    30. Creator Wes Green on February 18, 2014

      I really like that I get to see what game studios really should be about. It's been so depressing for the last 10+ years seeing great franchises just demolished by the likes of EA and Activision etc. The big publishers are no longer have anything to do with what gaming is about, and everything to do with taking the absolute maximum amount of money out of our wallets.

      Then we get Chris Roberts' Star Citizen, and you guys here at Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and I truly feel like we're heading back into the hay-day of gaming. Where developers don't just release a new map pack every 2-3 (for 3-5 maps with most of which are just rehashed) months that absolutely disallows you from having any of the customization options that PC gaming used to be so in tune with. Back to when the developers were the ones that decided how they would deal with the community, and ultimately the community decided where it would be best for games to head.

      I look at games like this and I'm glad I've backed them. I'm glad to support companies that are here BECAUSE they are gamers and want all of us to have the best time possible. Not because they can rape our wallets constantly for the shareholders (who generally have no interest in gaming, and are only there to profit off of your backs).

    31. Creator Fimbul on February 18, 2014

      Wow, it's humbling to see different projects on Kickstarter support each other. Kudos to you and Mr. Roberts.

    32. Creator Godewijn on February 18, 2014

      Hey, always happy to be able to support another Star Citizen with their project! :D
      Thanks for the welcome!
      (Besides, I really these kinds of games too ^^)

    33. Creator Koen Bryon on February 18, 2014

      Excellent news, I'm a backer for Star citizen as well and the two teams sharing their technology and improving both games together is fantastic!

    34. Creator Cristari on February 18, 2014

      I didn't back Star Citizen, I did back Elite: Dangerous and to confuse matters further my real life name is very close to every Wing Commander's Heart, Just don't call me Maverick.

    35. Creator Space Marshal MT on February 18, 2014

      I am here from Star Citizen - as a new Backer for this game....
      so, the marketing works :-)
      Hello guys.

    36. Creator Ulathar on February 18, 2014

      wow this is getting better and better ;). I am also a Star Citizen since the day it was possible to pledge directly via PayPal over their site and i have a pretty strong feeling that both: Star Citizen AND Kingdom Come will be new "milestones" in the way of gaming.
      I am still absolutely impressed by the combat system of Kingdom Come and even more impressed by the visuals of Star Citizen (well Kingdom Come doesn't look that bad, too... :D)

      Huge things to come ..... Huge things.... Can't wait!

    37. Creator Andre on February 18, 2014

      JOLLY COOPERATION

    38. Creator Martin Stasch on February 18, 2014

      Good conzepts have to be supported. And this is definitely a great one.
      As a Star Citizen and Fan of History you have my support.

      Publisher do not really know what player wants! They only have one aim. And this is to make money.

    39. Creator Chris Silveira on February 18, 2014

      This is by far the best news I've heard all day. I backed Star Citizen without a doubt in my mind early on. I cannot imagine what this cross breeding of information will do for. Both ventures. So excited for the teams to have this kind of support from each other but more importantly for the fans who will surely reap the greatest benefit.

    40. Creator kilobug on February 18, 2014

      I was also a big WC fan as a teenager (finishing WC4 was the only time in my life I actually skept school to play a game, but ssssh don't tell), so awesome news :)

    41. Creator Darryl Grant on February 18, 2014

      Cool. I backed Kingdom Come last week or so and was an early backer for Star Citizen. I Chris' announcement will shine even more light on Kingdom Come's wonderful project. And I KNOW the sharing of knowledge and techniques will no doubt help make both games even more of a success! This co-operation makes me happy.

    42. Creator Naomi on February 18, 2014

      Both games have me unbelievably excited.Finally, something fresh on the market that has a focus on realism and immersion.

    43. Creator LuckyLuigi on February 18, 2014

      As a backer of both projects I can't express how awesome this is.

    44. Creator Cameron Usman on February 18, 2014

      As a backer for both projects, I am very happy to hear that you are both going to be co-operating with each other to help both games be better. I hope many more of the Star Citizen backers get wind of Kingdom Come: Deliverance and come on over with their pledges.

    45. Creator Polution on February 18, 2014

      Chris Roberts brought me here. Now Kingdom Come backer, looking forward to it. :D

    46. Creator James Nurse on February 18, 2014

      Horses... IN SPACE!

    47. Creator Steal Justice on February 18, 2014

      Looks Great! I am an Original backer of Star Citizen. And now a backer (EARL) of KCD. Good Luck, look forward to playing the game!

    48. Creator Goat Yoda on February 18, 2014

      Freakin' awesome. Love the business model. Looking forward to both games even more!
