A few days ago Star Citizen had broken the $30 million barrier in crowd-funding, but the people got bored quickly and so decided to charge ahead with almost $32 million to-date. Tonight a live stream is scheduled.
The recent huge surge in pledges comes from a week long anniversary sale of ships culminating in the Star Citizen Anniversary Livestream hosted by Chris Roberts @ 7.00pm GMT.
Throughout the day the coveted Idris-P corvettes will go on sale 100 at a time for an eye watering $1,000 and that includes Lifetime Insurance (you get it back if it goes boom).
"We’re offering two special ships available for sale for the next 24-hours: the promised Banu Merchantman and the Xi’An Scout ship. Both of these ships were unlocked by Star Citizen backers, and they both represent how additional funding is allowing us to expand the games in new and exciting ways. Remember, all of these ships will be available in the finished game. Purchases today help Star Citizen’s development!" Cloud Imperium.
