How could I have been so wrong?

Back in November I accidentally reported Star Citizen‘s fundraising amount incorrectly — I was two million out, and two days behind — and so as penance I wrote this joking article here about how the game would inevitably make $40 million and guessed that the contents that would unlock would be ‘a fully-realised Imperial Star Destroyer licensed from LucasArts” and “a pony”.
Well, somehow, I was wrong. Very wrong. In fact at $40 million, which was just announced overnight, you’ll be getting two new systems to explore: the Kabal System, a seemingly empty system which has somehow been accumulating weaponry, and the Oretani System, where the only colonists sent in where stranded when the jump point collapsed and was unable to be reopened. Innnnnnteresting stuff.
The stretch goals for $42 million have also been revealed, and they’re quite ambitious. Aside from a new ship model for the single-player campaign and giving you a towel in your hangar (yes) RSI are promising a fully-fledged ‘Observist’ galactic companion, a real-time, updating encyclopaedia of the universe that changes based on player actions. It is – of course – inspired by The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, for those of you playing along at home.
Check out the whole thing here. A pony, honestly.
