Brief: Star Citizen Crosses $28 Million In Funding, 300K Backers

star-citizenThe campaign for Star Citizen keeps marching on. Chris Roberts and the developers at Cloud Imperium just recently crossed two milestones: $28 million in funding and 300,000 backers.

This comes on the heels of news that October was one of the most successful months for the Star Citizen campaign. The campaign raised over $5 million last month alone.

I recently opined that Star Citizen doesn’t get the credit it deserves, but anecdotally I get the sense that that tide is now turning. More and more people are taking notice of this campaign for what it is: proof that the crowd is more important than the platform. (And proof that crowdfunding is hugely disruptive for the video game space.)
