Star Citizen has raised $10,701,217 from crowdfunding, making it not only the most crowdfunded videogame of all time, but the most crowdfunded project of any sort of all time, beating out Pebble Watch, which raised $10,266,845 on Kickstarter.

Star Citizen only raised $2,134,374 on Kickstarter, but raised more on the official site after the Kickstarter drive had ended.

Developer Chris Roberts' studio Cloud Imperium Games crowed, "That’s a record you should be proud of. But we're just getting started!"

Star Citizen is a space combat sim similar to Roberts' famous titles like Wing Commander and Freelancer.

The space combat sim is a genre that has been dormant too long.

This is the game that will make me buy a flight stick and occulus rift. So it's good for a lot of companies

^-^

Looking forward to it. I mean, it won't live up to the hype, nothing does, but should be good.

It's just really the only game right now that captures my imagination. Even if it manages to fulfill half of its ambitions I would be so happy :3
