Star Citizen Raises Over $37 Million from Crowd-Funding

Chris Roberts and his studio Cloud Imperium Games continue to generate ridiculous sums of money from ongoing crowd-funding efforts for his latest space simulation game Star Citizen. As of this writing, the game has managed to raise an impressive $37 million dollars through a combination of the original Kickstarter campaign for the game and subsequent efforts through the game's official web site.

"Thank you for your continued support. Whether you’re part of a thousand-person Organization or planning to explore the galaxy on your own, 2014 is going to be the biggest year yet for Star Citizen," Roberts said.

With the new funding milestone comes more features: players have unlocked the new Tanga System, which is in the heart of an "unusual" rectangular planetary nebula. A second new system, the UDS-2943-01-22 System, will also now be available to players.

Finally, you can now vote for the final system stretch goal at the game's website. The system will be unlocked if funding reaches $39 million. The options are: Lost Human Colony, Tevarin Ghost World, and Xi'An Science Outpost.
