In the car advertising world, words don't mean what they mean—they mean whatever a robust masculine voice tells us they mean. The same goes in the latest

It may be a while yet before backers of the crowdfunded space sim, which recently
surpassed $10M in funding
, can fly their ships, but they won't have to wait too much longer to admire them. Cloud Imperium Games plans to send out the first of its iterative development releases, the hangar module, late this August to coincide with Gamescom. As studio founder Chris Roberts explains in

, the hangar won't launch with character customization, but players will be able to stroll around their fleet and make certain ship modifications.
