After the drama with Escapist magazine where they claimed the game is impossible, I now have no doubt that the game is on track and will have enough money to complete.
The Escapist has been super quite after the event seeing how much of the framework stuff (in ship gravity, stations, ship systems, traveling and FPS) has been built. Now CIG only needs to fill in the stations and build the missions.
