Star Citizen Passes $250M

The Stretch Goals page on the Roberts Space Industries Website shows that crowdfunding for Star Citizen (and Squadron 42) has surpassed another milestone (thanks PCGamesN). Cloud Imperium Games has now collected over a quarter-billion dollars to develop their space exploration game. As of this writing, the exact total is $250,537,095.00, which is higher than the gross domestic product of several countries, including the Marshall Islands. Crowdfunding for the project began in 2012 with as an effort to raise two million dollars to create a game originally planned for 2014, but as Nicolas Cage's character said in The Rock, "Well gosh. Kind of a lot's happened since then."
