(Citizen Star News) - By Citizen Ed - 2014-10-27 - Relatively straight to the questions since they are all busy finishing off 13.2. Chris did take a moment to talk about the control systems, and particularly about the improvement to his favorite - Joystick - in the upcoming Patch.

Star Citizen Producer Travis Day Answers Questions about the First Person Shooter Module...

(Ctiizen Star News) - 2014-10-12 - Citizen Ed here, back from the big event! Exhausted and happy. The event went extremely well, by all accounts. Some audio issues, but started on time, stream was pretty solid, Cutlass commercial was great, and demos went well. A real sense of accomplishment, and the planetside demo gave us a real sense of what it will be like to actually play this game.

Star Citizen and Cloud Imperium Games has come a long way, in spite healthy skepticism by much of the 'net.


The two hour live event had a great retrospective of the last two years, were we are now, a peak at what has been under developement, new ships, and a surprisingly candid look at the roadmap for the future.

(Citizen Star News/Citizen Ed) - 2014-10-10 - Headed out to Citizen Con! Just a quick plane trip away. Even less by M50.

Do have a question for someone at CIG? Let me know in the comments and I'll see if I can track them down!


And Happy Birthday Chelsea!

On a personal level, I know that we've not been putting out as many stories as usual in the last bit. Have quite a few in development, but haven't made it out. I know a couple of Org Profiles are held up, apologies to anyone waiting on an article we've not yet published. A bit busy here at Citizen Star HQ, but we'll get better.

You can help out!
