The madness continues.

Cloud Imperium and Roberts Space Industries have announced that Star Citizen has now clocked over $37 million, which unlocks a new star system — the Tanga System.
“At the heart of an unusual rectangular planetary nebula, lies the Tanga System. The inner planets were engulfed as the star entered the red giant phase. The expanded habitable zone unfroze a small world on the former outer ring and for several hundred million years made it habitable,” writes Chairman Roberts.
“Life began to emerge and was just reaching a primitive state when the star collapsed into a white dwarf, throwing the planet back into a deep freeze, then blasting the atmosphere away with the resulting planetary nebula. That’s how the system was found: Only two worlds (speculation that there could have been three to four more) but both are dead planets with no atmosphere.”
Roberts also explains that 5,000 player organisations have already been created in the less than 24 hours that the player organisation tool has been online.
The next goal at $38 million is an “unexplored natural wonder”, a strange new system codenamed UDS-2943-01-22. Voting on the $40 million goal is still ongoing, but since we’ve already reported (ahead of time) on Star Citizen hitting $40 million, you can take our word for it.
