If you’re one of the many who donated to Star Citizen, either through the Kickstarter or through the funding drive on the website, congratulations! Thanks to you, the game has now blasted through $8 million in funding, and if it wasn’t already the biggest crowdfunding game on record then, well, it sure as hell is now.
The announcement means that Star Citizen has actually gained another $1.75 million since the Kickstarter campaign closed in November — which must no doubt somewhat upset some of the other Kickstarters which have (Kick)started and failed in that intervening time. More than $500,000 has been raised in the last two weeks alone.
“The amount of support we are seeing from our fans is nothing short of amazing,” claimed Roberts in a press release. “Our backers are totally connecting with the development team and it just gets them so excited to come in to the office every day and work to make the next great space sim.”
