If you’re one of the seventeen people left on Earth that either haven’t heard about or haven’t pledged towards Roberts Space Industries record-breaking Star-Citizen crowdfund, then you should be too late — it finished up late on Monday night with $6.2 million.
But wait! “It’s become clear that there’s a sizeable number of people that were unable to pledge, or adjust their pledges due to the difficulties with the RSI site,” writes Chris Roberts. “Many people tried repeatedly over the weekend, only for the site to crash at various points during the check out. Some people switched to Kickstarter, but there were also a large number of people that Kickstarter wasn’t an option and so they have been left high and dry.”
“The focus of our campaign was, from day one, involving the fans and trying to give them as many options to support us as possible. The last thing we want to do is punish any of you, and so we have decided to adapt our plans and offer a grace period for all current members of the RSI community.”
Head on over to the Roberts Space Indistries website to get all the deets.
