Perhaps the longest, continuous, crowdfunding campaign ever, the Star Citizen video game has now topped $100 Million raised from over on million Star Citizen supporters. Star Citizen is an MMO and may be released at some point in 2016 and remains in Alpha now. Back in December of 2013, Crowdfund Insider asked the question if Star Citizen was on pace to crowdfund over $100 million. We now have our answer. At that time, Star Citizen had raised only $33.9 million.

At one point in time, Star Citizen launched a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of raising $500,000. That was back in October of 2012. That project closed at $2.1 million and remains just a temporary detour in the path of raising far more money.
There is a subReddit for all things Star Citizen. One person made the astute observation that “India’s space agency put an actual satellite into Mars orbit for $74 million, for perspective sake”.
Created by well-known game developer Chris Roberts, Star Citizen is aiming to be the greatest game of all time. With $100 million they certainly have the budget to accomplish this goal.
