Letter from the Chairman on the Roberts Space Industries website
that Star Citizen
has now passed $59 million in crowd-sourced funding.
They describe the new stretch goal ship this will bring to the game, and outline
the next goal in a fundraising campaign that seems as open-ended as space
itself. Word from Chris Roberts is: "none of this would be possible without
backers like you." The chairman also discusses plans to show off the space game
at PAX Australia: "The team is hard at work prepping for the PAX Australia demo,
and we’re all looking forward to giving an audience of Star Citizen’s backers
their first look at something extremely cool this weekend. I think you’re going
to be surprised: the FPS module isn’t an aside… it’s a fully featured game in
and of itself!" Thanks 88fingers.
