Star Citizen Funding Passes $36M

The Roberts Space Industries website now shows that Star Citizen has passed the $36 million dollar crowdfunding mark. A new Letter from the Chairman celebrates the news, outlines the Tamsa system this unlocks, and lays out their $38 million goal, the "fully aquatic planet." They currently show $36,158,810 collected from 353,996 "Star Citizens," which seems to indicate that the average pledge for the upcoming space simulation is over $100.00.

limit theory looks pretty damn good, especially the futuristic UI.. but i think the guy needs to hire a team so he can get more content thrown in there,

Well, his KS made like $220K. Take out taxes, fees and goodies, and he's left with... 150K or so? And he's already paying a graphics guy, so he's just not going to have the money.

He'll likely release early and do some more updates with the money that comes in from it.

As for the procedural method, I agree that I don't think it's going to lead to something that grips you, but it'll be cool to see and toy around in for awhile.

The thing is that people are banging down his door trying to throw money at him. And he's refusing to take it for some reason. He could do an indie go go campaign or something and easily reap another $200K.

Maybe he thinks it wise to complete the project as planned and release it before going on to a new plan or change one thats already under way.

It's not like he only gets to ever make one game ... if this one is good, he can upscale the next with more funding and what not.
