About Cloud Imperium Games

Cloud Imperium is a new kind of independent video studio dedicated to delivering AAA games outside the established publisher system. Founded in 2012 by renowned visionary game developer Chris Roberts (Wing Commander, Freelancer, Privateer), Sandi Gardiner, and Ortwin Freyermuth (Producer: Carlito’s Way, Shattered, Das Boot - Director’s Cut), with Erin Roberts (Starlancer, Privateer) joining the team in 2013, Cloud Imperium is creating Star Citizen, a record-shattering largely crowdfunded space sim, and Squadron 42, a Hollywood-caliber story-driven single-player game set in the same universe. Cloud Imperium operates in “open development” – sharing progress and updates with our backers in near real time. This paradigm shifting development process (game development usually occurs behind closed doors) means players know the ins and outs of Star Citizen and Squadron 42’s development, interact with and give feedback to our developers and ensures that we are making the games they want to play.
