Cloud Imperium Games and Chris Roberts are elated as their Kickstarter campaign for Star Citizen has reached $1 million, which is twice what the project asks for. Their next stretch goal is $1.25m.
If reached the team will build "hidden smuggler asteroids." More info about the Idris-class corvette will be coming soon. Combined pledges for Star Citizen are almost at $3 million.
The studio is also ready to show the first of the 'Citizen Cards' that pledges can earn as a tier reward. The Scout-level 'white' card will be received by everyone backing Star Citizen.
"We'd like to thank the incredible Kickstarter community for helping us hit $1 million in pledges today. That's twice our original Kickstarter goal and it brings the combined campaign total very close to $3 million! It's incredible and humbling and we promise we're going to put that money to good use, building the game you're dreaming about," they .
"The big news at the million dollar mark is that the largest playable ship is now the Idris-class corvette, a powerful capital ship that you can crew with your friends. We'll release more information about this warship in the coming weeks. In addition, all pledgers will get an extra 500 credits in the finished game to celebrate. Let the good times roll!"
The 'Citizen Cards' will be printed with our names on them. There are 11 days left to go for the official for Star Citizen. "So keep spreading the news about Star Citizen so we can add more playable ships, more star systems and more exciting features to the game. And a sincere thanks to EVERYONE who has pledged!"
