Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts has issued the following call to action (https://www NULL.facebook NULL.com/RobertsSpaceIndustries/posts/442294829145878) on the Facebook page for his upcoming PC open-world space combat and trading game Star Citizen (http://www NULL.robertsspaceindustries NULL.com/):
Hi Chris Roberts here!
I would like to hit $1 million by 10 am PST Thursday.
So we need to raise $58,112 in the next 11 1/2 hours!
If make this target [sic] we’ll add 500 in game credits to all current backers ship packages as a little gift back to all the early supporters!
It could mean the difference between the basic targeting system and the multi-target tracking one!
Lets show the world that space sim fans mean business
