It's vaporware that *may* one day be worth playing. Allegations of rampant mismanagement, focus on fundraising "demos" that are nothing but scripted scenes with no substance, embezzling of donations etc - they are only allegations that have been refuted by CIG and they've actually taken legal action
. Either way, the game is taking far too long and is growing in scope faster than it is growing in completeness - technically I guess that if progress is measured as percentage complete, the game is actually regressing :\
Regardless of whether the project is actually making progress or just another vaporware scam, I'm not going to wait for it; It will be judged on how good it is compared to games on the market when it's done. In the meantime the genre is now very well catered for by Elite: Dangerous, EVE, and even X3
if that's your thing.
Speaking of which, is there a Gerbil E:D faction?
