A bit over a half year ago we wrote about Star Citizen, a new project from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts, and recently the game was back in the news as it's the first video game to raise $10 million via crowdfunding!
Star Citizen’s Kickstarter campaign demonstrated that you don’t need a publisher to make an ambitious space trading sim MMO thing – and now the Roberts Space Industries site has shown that you don’t even need Kickstarter. In addition to the two-and-change million dollars Chris Roberts and co managed to drum up on the funding site alone, they’ve raised $7.9 million via RSI (no, not Repetitive Strain Injury), bringing the total to a cool $10 million, or enough to afford their own private universe. Probably. Or at the very least, one of the more leper-free Caribbean islands.
