Star Citizen crowdfunding reaches $35 million

Star Citizen continues to break all records for crowdfunding, the upcoming space sim has not hit the $35 million mark. Interestingly, given that the game has around 330,000 backers, this means the actual amount committed per backer is over $100, far more than what would normally be spent on a AAA game. Star Citizen is rolled out in a modular fashion, the hangar module is already completed and a dogfighting module will be added soon. After that you can expect a social module, a persistent universe and so on.
"Wow! When I started this journey I would have never guessed that we would have come so far in such a short time. $35M in funds raised to build Star Citizen before the end 2013 it truly a monumental achievement! You’re not just re-writing the rules of how games are made and funded but you’re showing the power that a committed community has to achieve a vision that so many people said was no longer relevant. You’ve broken every record there is in crowd funding – and not just for games – for any type of project!

Star Citizen will eventually be a highly detailed, vast space trading game with combat and socialising elements, and even talk of incorporating citizenship rules such as paying tax.
