The project is currently being funded through two crowd sourcing websites, one on the Star Citizen website, made and run by the development team, and the also made a Kickstarter option. The overall goal is $2 million dollars, and at the current time of writing this, it is at about 1.8 million collectively between the two sources. The Kickstarter version already passed it's $500,000 goal and the main sources is at about 1.3 million.
And here's the extended trailer for Star Citizen, with amazing visuals being produced by a modified Cry Engine 3.
Personally, I love space and sci-fi. I played Freelancer, Sins of Solar Empire, Nexus The Jupiter Incident, Black Prophecy, and Overkill for MS-Dos as a kid, and I love Sci-Fi tv shows and movies. So when I saw this, I jumped up and down (figuratively). The visuals are amazing, the gameplay seems solid, and what Chris Roberts has explain on where he wants it to go, I just had to support this video game.
So what does everyone else think?
