Other thread was 8 months + old, so for those that have no idea what this is or perhaps a better word is "will be", it's going to be a giant space simulator persistent one server trading/economic game. Think Eve Online from the cockpit view but much more detailed than that description does it justice.
After you watch all the below I'd be interested to know if anyone is considering joining the pledge army or already have!
Promotional Squadron 42 video (basically the single player side)
From that same cinematic with have Chris Roberts (founder/creator) doing a in game fly around with one of the fighters basically showing that it's really not just cinematic.

- My Part / Opinion -
So I saw this start of June 2013 and was like "meh" but seeing more of it made me turn from meh to fanatical about every update and thread I managed to grab myself a Rear Admiral package with the LTI (Life Time Insurance) which has turned into something very coveted. Even though this isn't available anymore I would recommend if you have 30-40e lying around to drop it into this game if it's your thing as community support is simply mind-boggling. Of course if you have more dosh around then there are more pricier pledges with better benefits but that's up to you.
They've hit the 14 million mark and very soon be at 15 million (320k as of this posting).
I'm joining the game with a load of old Eve Online mates and we'll probably form so sort of squadron but still in discussion.
