The Star Citizen Community: A Crowdfunded Success Story

Mar 18, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

Star Citizen is the top crowdfunded project ever. But its success today never would have happened without a completely invested and passionate community that is helping mold and shape the game alongside the game’s designers. Join the Star Citizen community team as they discuss the process of building the ever-growing legion of Star Citizen fans and backers which currently stands at more than 1.7 million. You’ll find out details behind the Evocati testing group, the hugely critical Issue Council, successful weekly web casts like Bug Smashers and Citizens of the Stars. They are all part of the many tools and platforms designed to help feed Star Citizen’s fervent fan base with content as the game continues its development journey.
