On Star Citizen's $17M Haul

Roberts Space Industries has a letter from Chairman Chris Roberts offering thanks to backers who have now pledged $17 million to fund Star Citizen, the upcoming Wing Commander-inspired space game. This includes word on their $19 million stretch goal:

I would like to extend my most heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you! We just hit $17 million at slightly past 12am PST August 31 2013 less than seven days after we hit $16M!!! The power of this community is simply amazing!

We still have a ways to go before we have achieved the goal of being completely community funded but based on our current trajectory were going to make it maybe even by the end of this year! Which will be another amazing milestone that will have been set by this community. The enthusiasm and support the development team and I have felt is amazing and makes us even more determined to make the best damn space sim ever! (BDSSE!)

The $17 million mark unlocks a special ship upgrade pack for every pledger who has donated prior to this point. An engine modifier will be added to your account shortly and in the near future you should be able to see it in your hangar! You also unlocked an additional flyable ship class in the finished game: the massive battlecruiser!

This accomplishment means that its time to reveal the $19 million stretch goals. Without further ado:

$19 million

  • Know your foe with a Janes Fighting Ships style manual free in PDF form to all pledgers.
  • Manage Space Stations Players will compete to own and operate a limited number of space stations across the galaxy.
  • RSI Museum will air monthly, with a new game featured each time!
