Star Citizen

Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts has issued the following call to action on the Facebook page for his upcoming PC open-world space combat and trading game Star Citizen:

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 🙂

Star Citizen amassed over US$800,000 of its US$2,000,000 minimum crowdfunding goal within 5 days of its unveiling at the 2012 Game Developers Conference Online last week.
