Last chance to back Star Citizen
Just a reminder that if you were planning to back the Star Citizen kickstarter and haven't done so yet, you have about 6 hours to do so. The game is already the most successful crowd funded video game ever, having raised $5.5 million (via Kickstarter and the game's own website). While I personally think all the higher reward tiers are a bit bonkers, laying out for the base game now if you're likely to buy it (at $35 it's still cheaper than a standard new release) will allow for extra features and manpower and a better game.

Thanks for reminding me. I've signed up for the Basic pledge. See you out of the world!

3 hours to go, will it break the $6,000,000 total?

It's quite exciting, isn't it? Looks like they're going to hit $6 million.

It doesn't help that the main site seems to be undergoing some form of DoS ... but the KS has now passed $2,000,000!

(I suspect KS can scale better than the RSI site at this stage)

Latest figure on the main site is $6.1 million

Yep - minutes to go, but they've made their last target.

Tch, would've quite liked to have backed that, but didn't get in from work 'till half eight or nineish.

Ah well, can get it when it's out on Steam.

As I understand it, you're still likely to be able to back, but there's less point to doing so, as you won't get some (relatively minor) early bird benefits.

True, but I have no faith in Braben to deliver on anything he promises.
