Cloud Imperium Games' proposed sci-fi trading and combat sim for the PC completed its funding drive on Kickstarter today. The project managed to raise over $2.1 million via the crowdfunding website Kickstarter, bringing its overall total to a massive $6,238,563 and the total number of backers to 89,668 when you include those who also contributed via the project's website.
The project, which is being headed by Wing Commander and Freelancer developer Chris Roberts, is set to be an epic sci-fi game, featuring an evolving, open-universe galaxy made specifically for hardcore PC gamers.
Several of our staff contributed to Star Citizen's funding drive, so we're certainly pleased to see it far outstrip its initial funding goals, and we wish Chris Roberts and everyone involved in the project the best of luck.
