What. A. Week! A handful of us traveled to San Antonio, TX to attend PAX South and a Bar Citizen event organized by the community. We had a great time, and were honestly shocked by the amount of passion, support, and energy that you all provided us during our visit. The feeling in the air was electric! These events really recharge the ole battery for us, and we are more hyped than ever to be back in the studio today, working to deliver great content for all of you! Big shout-out to Gany and Jorunn for organizing this event, pushing the Bar Citizen movement, and building a level of camaraderie unparalleled in gaming.
So, what’s going on this week?
Monday introduces Citizens of the Stars, our new weekly program exclusively about you, the Star Citizen Community. Citizens of the Stars not only highlights the contributions of our community, but also puts a developer in the hot-seat for a round of Quantum Questions, which addresses some fun facts about the developer and the game. Whether through bug reports on the issue council, feedback on the forums, or the creation of content inspired by the game, Star Citizen is only possible because of the community.
On Tuesday, the Lore Team is back at it again with another installment in one of their many continuing series. If you’re interested in the narrative that will bring the Star Citizen Universe to life, you’ll want to check these out. You can also browse previous posts here.
On Wednesday, we check in with the man who fears no creature, the resounding champion of pest control, the smasher of all things bugs, Mark “Bugsmasher” Abent! Make sure to tune in to watch another bug get smashed, and take a detailed look at one of the many hurdles involved in game development.
Thursday. Prepare your F5 keys for the first Around the Verse episode of February, where we take an inside look at the on-going development of Star Citizen! These episodes grant us a great opportunity to peek behind closed doors, deep-dive the complexity that is game development, and get to know the people working tirelessly on the project behind the scenes.
Lastly, join us on Friday where we’ll broadcast LIVE at https://www.twitch.tv/starcitizen for another episode of Star Citizen Happy Hour!
And with that, we’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
