      This game is not as epic in it's scope as Star Citizen but still check it out as I like some of it's ideas.

      As I said before ,I don't want a refund. I have done 200+ Kickstarters and accepted the risk of backing a project. The refund I got from Elite was because they change the scope of the project to not including a major part of their project that they promised during their Kickstarter.
      I want is project to be successful but that's doesn't mean that I put my head in the sand when issue about the project come to life. For me personally I will not back another project by this organisation because of the information that came out on how they treated their staff.

    3. Creator Tobias R. on October 28

      Sorry, the second link was not correct (wrong year).

      The right link is:

      With the following text:
      “It is the responsibility of the project creator to fulfill the promises of their project.”

      “Creators are encouraged to share links to any websites that show work related to the project, or past projects.”

      So although the wording is a bit different, the message isn’t, so my summary should still be valid.

      (Sorry again for the wrong link.)

    4. Creator Tobias R. on October 28

      This being a project of October 18, 2012, the correct link would be:

      Where it says:
      “By backing or creating a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter, you agree to be bound by this entire Agreement, including the following terms:

      The Estimated Delivery Date listed on each reward is not a promise to fulfill by that date, but is merely an estimate of when the Project Creator hopes to fulfill by.

      Project Creators agree to make a good faith attempt to fulfill each reward by its Estimated Delivery Date.”

      Along with this one: a project#Rewa

      “Every creator is responsible for fulfilling the promises of their project.”

      On the other hand, in the same document it says:

      “Creators are encouraged to share links to their personal website(s), as well as any websites that show work related to the project, or past projects.”

      To sum it up:

      1. We have a contract through Kickstarter which should be fulfilled. Changing scope upon some mysterious poll on the creator’s web site does not unbind the creator from their promises.

      2. The estimated delivery date is the target for the creator. Changing scope after the Kickstarter campaign so that this date cannot be held (here we talk about several years!) is not valid.

      3. Links to the creator’s own web site for updates and further information are fine.

      So yes, CIG broke promises and therefore the contract with their Kickstarter backers. They should give refunds if the backers request them. (As far as I have heard, this has been the case, so no worries.)

      To get a refund, go to their web site and contact them there. Or use the contact button here on Kickstarter. I would be surprised if it were ignored, but I can’t tell for sure.

      Any other agreement outside of Kickstarter (i.e. pledging on CIG’s own web site) has nothing to do with Kickstarter, so please don’t mix up the two things.

    5. Creator ParasiteX on October 27

      @Joseph De Santis
      From Kickstarters Terms of Use:…

      The Estimated Delivery Date is the creator’s estimate. The date listed on each reward is the creator’s estimate of when they will provide the reward — not a guarantee to fulfill by that date. The schedule may change as the creator works on the project. We ask creators to think carefully, set a date they feel confident they can work toward, and communicate with backers about any changes.

    6. Creator Joseph De Santis on October 27

      So do we email Kickstarter that the game is still a year late and still have no release date ?

    7. Creator ParasiteX on October 24

      This comment has been removed by Kickstarter.

    8. Creator ParasiteX on October 24

      @Shane Ching
      That whole changing of TOS thing is complete bullshit to begin with.

      The very original TOS did not have the guarantee of a refund.

      This is something they added to TOS later on.. And changed was later adjusted as they got a better handle of the scope of the game.

      Kickstarters own TOS states that delivery dates are just estimates. And KS projects are not required to strictly adhere to these.

      But if im not mistaken. You can contact CIG and request a refund if you are not happy with your pledge.

    9. Creator Shane Ching on October 23

      @Rene Lorentzen
      A lot of people when they back a game with Kickstarter don't follow the game closely on the developer web site so I'm sharing this info with those people.
      For me personally I'll not going to challenge my small backing of $30 BUT after reading up a bit I am concern that they changed their TOS increasing by 6 months that you are not covered by Kickstarter requesting a refund. I personally will also never back more than the min required for any software project after both the Elite and Clang Kickstarters even though I got my backing returned for both.

    10. Creator Rene Lorentzen on October 21

      @shane Ching

      I am kind of confused by your post.

      Are you implying that RSI stopped sending updates on Kickstarter April 2013 to hide an article written in September 2015 ?

      If you follow the progress on RSI you would know that this issue has been discussed to death, and even a letter from the chairman was dedicated to this issue.

      currently there is even a Forum thread with more than 6000 posts discussing the articles. Until recently a thread containing many of the current employees take on the articles was stickied in the general forum.

      So i am confused as to how you conclude that they didn't want backers to know about them

    11. Creator Torsten Straeten on October 17

      You can go to the homepage (where are a lot of updates) and fill out the contact formular. The direct link is

      Bye bye

    12. Creator just jase yeah on October 16

      Whats the best way to get a refund for this game? I dont want to support this bloated mess, when the company shows such a marked disrespect for the people that were first to show faith in their vision. I cannot get a straight answer from the forums, the people there come across as cultists. Maybe its going to be an expensive lesson learnt but just dropping off the radar in terms of kickstarter updates is pretty shameful and the recent footage from the convention seems to show a pretty average looking game.

    13. Creator Arrakisdef on October 14

      I have been very respectful. And I feel I have to remind you, that you are not, and are not associated with Cloud Imperium Games.

      You want rules? I would like to point your attention to the Kickstarter Terms of Use,, section 4: How Projects work. Read this section.

      "Throughout the process, creators owe their backers a high standard of effort, honest communication, and a dedication to bringing the project to life. "

      Two years and no update on kickstarter. That goes past even the lowest standard of effort at communication.

      "At the same time, backers must understand that when they back a project, they’re helping to create something new — not ordering something that already exists. "

      I know that this is a huge project that could take more time then they estimated. They need to inform their backers about it, on the site that they received funding to.

      What I want from Cloud Imperium Games is exactly what the section states at the end. I want a post and update explaining how funds were used and what work has been done. I want a demonstration that they have used all of the funds appropriately.

      I want this game to be a reality, but I don't believe that it will be. I want answers and accountability from Cloud Imperium Games, something that they are required to provide.

    14. Creator Damon Czanik on October 13

      @Arrakisdef Look, it says "Be respectful and considerate" right next to the post button. At least try to be more civil. I'm in *agreement* with you. I think there should be more updates here. It's why I'm providing updates. It's why I posted the poll! And, the results are: backers don't agree with us. That's right, us.

      Fact is, they are providing plenty of updates. You're just not wanting to look outside Kickstarter. If you point to the rule that says CIG has to provide updates on, then that's something I can work with.

    15. Creator Arrakisdef on October 13

      There isn't even a connection of updates from this site to that one. There is a link to check updates, that guess what, links to the update page on Kickstarter. Which hasn't been updated in Two and a Half Years.

    16. Creator Arrakisdef on October 13

      @Damnon Czanik Yes, why would people who have signed up for a forum account need to be informed elsewhere about updates? That poll is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of. You can shill all you want, but that doesn't change the fact that Cloud Imperium Games is doing a horrible job.

    17. Creator Arrakisdef on October 13

      Just another reminder that Cloud Imperium Games refuses to update their kickstarter page and is over two an a half years late.

      derek smart for president

    22. Creator Damon Czanik on October 10

      @Paskari Yes! I believe if you pledged $30 or more, you get the full game. That also includes Squadron 42. Backers who backed before 6 million also get the DLC "Behind Enemy Lines" for free too.

      To verify: Go to
      Click "My RSI" and log in.
      Click My Hangar
      Go into Game packages
      Click the Down arrow. You should see something like:
      Squadron 42 digital download.

      You should also see "Original and Backers Reward" if you pledged before 6 million.
      That should say "Squadron 42 Mission Disk". (The "Behind Enemy Lines" stuff)
      There will also be a "Record Breaker Skin", and "AMX-1 Repair Bot".

      Of course, if you get a refund, then you lose all this stuff, and have to buy again. You will also never get stuff like the "Record Breaker Skin".

      Customer service is going to be swamped for the next week or so. Lots of things introduced this week. So, if you can't find it, I'd ask for technical help in the forums. Or just be patient while customer service tries to get to your questions.

    23. Creator Paskarl (k0SH) on October 10

      Does anyone know if SQUADRON42 will be available for (all) kickstarter backers for free?

    24. Creator Damon Czanik on October 9

      Just to add to @Arrakisdef: Another reminder there's a backer poll on that (with discussions): ;)

      There's pros and cons (as I describe in the link). Currently, 65% of backers say it's not a "Serious Issue". Vote if you disagree. Chime in on the comments (where people actually read this stuff) If it gets to 70% CIG will publicly respond.

      Yes. It is late though. Chris addressed the point here:
      Under the "Open development". Whether you like it or not, it's been publicly addressed.

      If you want an update, there's a cool clip from "Around the Verse", their weekly update show:…

      Updates this week:

      * Star Citizen hit $90 million in funding.
      * CitizenCon is 6 Days away. This will be the first public showing of Squadron 42 the single player game, the facial tech, and more.

      * Backers Poll: Due to some comments on here (scroll down), I put up a poll for Backers:
      - If it gets a 70% YES, CIG will publicly comment on the issue, so if it's a serious concern for you, you'll want to make your voice heard.
      - Currently 75% of backers said they don't think the updates on Kickstarter is a serious issue.

      * 1.2.1 is now renamed to 1.3. Probably going to PTU this week. Nothing major this update. This is the merged game Dev stream. So internally, a lot will change.

    27. Creator Damon Czanik on October 1

      @Arrakisdef Sorry, I thought you could figure out I was addressing the both of you. I guess not.

      I've submitted the concern to CIG, with a backer poll:

      If it gets a 70% YES, CIG will address the question publicly. So far, the backers are not agreeing with you. Not even for major updates. Right now, 80% have voted No.

      Posting the link here since it concerns Kickstarter backers.

    28. Creator Arrakisdef on September 29

      @Damon Czanik Amusing that you say that, as the person right below you wrote, and I quote "Update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    29. Creator Damon Czanik on September 29

      @Arrakisdef Okay. So, after 4 times of refuse to answer if you're getting the weekly emails from CIG.

      Once again, CIG already e-mails all backers weekly update emails. By asking for updates you're asking for all backers to get spammed twice for the same update .They are taking responsibility. Backers do NOT want to get spammed twice for a single update.

    31. Creator Arrakisdef on September 28

      @Arrakisdef I don't need, or want help from you. Cloud Imperium Games needs to take responsibility.

      Star Marine Status Update:
      - If they can, they want to release version with Star Citizen Alpha 1.3
      - 1.3 Should contain the Baby PU
      - 1.3 will probably be available shortly after CitizenCon.

      - I don't see a video link.
      - Transcript:
      - the new CCU (Cross Chassis Upgrade) system is in active testing. First iteration will be side-grades and upgrades, and then there will be downgrades eventually. This will allow you to change ships you have bought.
      - A lot of the cap ships will come along once the Idris is ready. Now that tech issues are resolved, we’ll see more cap ship stuff coming.
      - [Difference between AC 2.0 and large world release?] They are different things. Large world is the baby PU/exoverse. AC, Star Marine, they’re built into the world. They’re games within the game. The Baby PU is a giant stage for CIG to play with stuff. All of SC’s parts are supposed to go in there, break, be fixed, etc… AC 2.0 will come out once multicrew’s perfected in the baby PU
      - [Un-melt requests again?] Yes, but please don’t inundate them. They can do a couple. It’s just hard when they come at the time of an event. Really impacts the response time.

      25th anniversary of Wing Commander live stream with Ben Lesnick:
      - No Star Citizen news there. Just was about Wing Commander.

      James Pugh and Alyssa have left the company:
      - CIG doesn't comment on personnel changes.
      - If you want rampant speculation, reddit is the place to go! If I hear actual news (and not rumors), I'll post it.
      - Truth is, nobody knows. Those that do, aren't commenting.
      - Alyssa (via twitter): "Guys - don't believe everything you read on the internet. The sky isn't falling. Geez."
      - Lisa Ohanian got a job offer from Sony and put in her 2 week notice. Unrelated, but people still grouped it together. It's a big career boost for her.

      12 Days until CitizenCon 2015.
      - Facial Tech will be shown.
      - Squadron 42 (Single Player game) will be revealed.

    33. Creator Damon Czanik on September 25

      @Arrakisdef You keep asking for updates. This is now the third time I've asked. Are you getting the weekly e-mail updates from CIG? They should be going out to every backer every week.

      If not, I'll contact CIG. I just need a yes or a no.

      I know you want updates here but those also get sent out as emails too. Not every backer wants 2 emails being sent out for the same update news. Help me, to help you!

    34. Creator Arrakisdef on September 25

      To clarify, they have no intention of updating their Kickstarter page. I don't know about you, but this is downright unacceptable.

    35. Creator Arrakisdef on September 25

      Just so everyone knows. I've been messaging someone at Cloud Imperium Games. They are refusing to update their Kickstarter page.

    36. Creator Damon Czanik on September 21

      @Arrakisdef Okay. I just want to confirm, are you getting e-mail updates from CIG? They are sending out weekly e-mail updates to all their Kickstarter backers. I just want to make sure you are getting them.

    37. Creator Arrakisdef on September 21

      @Damon Czanik The fact that you feel like you need to post updates on Kickstarter shows that they are doing something wrong. They should be posting updates here.

      I didn't mean to say that you weren't trying to be helpful, but you shouldn't be doing it, the company should. Like I've said, they haven't updated their kickstarter page in over two and a half years. They received funding from kickstarter, so this is where they should post updates.

      There is no current FTC investigation. I was just mentioning that courts are finally starting to rule against kickstarter programs that do not fulfill their requests.

    39. Creator Damon Czanik on September 19

      @Arrakisdef They are. If you have signed up, CIG should have your e-mail address and be sending you e-mail updates ever week. If you are not getting them, please check your spam folder or contact customer support. If you need a refund I'd also contact customer support. As for posting all the updates to the Kickstarter site, those updates get e-mailed too. I'm not sure how many backers would like getting two emails just for the same update.

      As far as a 'random' person on Kickstarter. You're right. I am. I do link to official sources for everything. I don't mean to upset or offend, I'm just trying to help and keep other backers informed.

      As far as the courts, there appears currently to be no FTC investigation (despite what some say). But I'm not a lawyer:

      I do know that CIG is regularly delivering updates (via e-mail) and on their website. They've already released 3 out of the 6 modules. You can log in and play them now. So I feel that's not the same as delivering nothing and giving no updates (like Asylum Playing Card's Campaign). I agree, those that don't should be held accountable.

    40. Creator Arrakisdef on September 18

      @Damon Czanik, I don't want some random person "informing" me about a company and its obligations.

    41. Creator Arrakisdef on September 18

      Thankfully, courts are starting to make judgments on Kickstarter projects that don't fulfill their promises.

    42. Creator Arrakisdef on September 18

      @Damon Czanik Star Citizen has an obligation to everyone that pledged to them on Kickstarter to keep them informed, on Kickstarter.

      If you guys have any questions, you can post them in here and I'll try to answer them. There's now also a weekly 'stupid questions' forum on where you can ask any question there. No matter how stupid it is, or how many times its been asked the community. Also many of the devs read there and might respond too. I'll be posting this weeks information on Friday or Saturday.

      It seems like a lot of people here don't realize there's weekly updates, videos, monthly reports, daily forum messages from the developers at If you're looking for updates, that is the place to go. If you have a problem, consider contacting customer service. I don't think CIG is actively reading the comments here.

      * 3 out of the 6 modules promised have already been delivered
      * The 4th out of the 6 modules is scheduled to come out in the next 30 days. (FPS module)
      * They've already released the social module last week. More updates are coming.
      * In approximately 60 days, you'll be able to play with friends in multi-crew ships as seen here;…

      I dont think my say will have anything to impact on certain people here
      but annyway.
      A scam is when you deliver nothing.
      This is not a scam yet since part of the product is delivered and other parts is still in construction.
      The only part that have really changed is how long the construction takes.
