The famed creator of Wing Commander, Chris Roberts, has raised a total of $8 million dollars for his latest project, Star Citizen. The game started out as a campaign on kickstarter.com and easily passed its total set goal. Over 140,000 pledges have been made since the start of the kickstarter.
For those who don’t know what Star Citizen is, check out the official video below. The game is powered by CryEngine 3 and will feature a persistent multiplayer and single player world. Backers of the game will also receive special awards for their pledge.
