Star Citizen's Record Funding Drive Ends

As noted on the Roberts Space Industries Website, the crowd-sourced fundraiser for Star Citizen blew past its initial $2 million goal, the $4.2 million record set recently by Project Eternity, and their own dream goal of $6 million to finish at $6,238,563. The campaign may be concluded, but they plan on continuing to offer chances to support development of this upcoming space sim, saying: "Going forward, Roberts says, people who backed the project during the crowd funding campaign will have the ability to purchase further tiers or upgrade existing ones at the initial prices. And for those who missed this opportunity, there is still a chance to be a part of the Star Citizen community and back the project but at slightly higher prices. Roberts says it will still be cheaper than purchasing the final product when it is released and it will enable backers to reserve a limited amount of alpha and beta slots that remain. Behind-the-scenes subscription updates during development are also available for purchase. They will provide even more extras and inside info for those who sign up." Here are some stats from the Star Citizen crowd funding campaign updated as of 1:00 pm CST today:

  • Kickstarter backers– 34,397
  • Kickstarter funds pledged - $2,134,374
  • Roberts Space Industries backers – 55,270
  • Roberts Space Industries funds raised - $4,104,189
  • Total backers – 89,667
  • Total funds raised and pledged - $6,238,563

I wish everyone who funded this luck, but I'm waiting for the final version before buying it. It all depends on the pay-to-win aspect of the game for me, I want to buy a meaningful and deep single player experience only.

This is exactly how I feel about this. The funding model makes me worried for how the multiplayer will work since people are already buying in-game items.

I was very tempted to fund this (would have been my first "kickstarter" funding) mainly due to who he is and the sheer amount of work that went into this BEFORE and during the campaign. I will 100% buy this at full price for the single player/private server portion after it gets a few reviews from reviewers who play it with a stick instead of a point and click. I doubt I'll ever get into the "MMO" servers though, mainly due to the give-aways from the funding drive.
