Star Citizen reaches $5 million fundraising goal

A while ago, we reported on a space sim called Star Citizen. Chris Roberts, the creator behind Wing Commander, launched a Kickstarter campaign for the game, with an initial fundraising target of $2 million.

VG247 have reported that the game has exceeded its initial target, and managed to muster up around $5 million ($1.7 million through Kickstarter, and $3.3 million through the developer’s own program). In response to fan support, Roberts has announced some new funding targets for the game, the highest one set at $6 million. If fans show enough support for the game, Roberts promises to include an orchestral score, motion capture, and a host of other features.

There are only 17 hours left, so head on over to the game’s Kickstarter page/official site to show your support!
