Star Citizen, the crowd funded space trading and combat sim from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts, has passed the $10 million raised mark.
At the time of publication it had raised an incredible $10,662,857, a few hundred thousand dollars more than Pebble, the E-Paper Watch for iPhone and Android that raised $10,266,845 on Kickstarter.
Now, Roberts' company and developer of the game Cloud Imperium has claimed Star Citizen as the number one crowd funded project of all time. Roberts raised just over $2 million on Kickstarter and just over $8.5 million on the Robert Space Industries website. It counts 194,050 "space sim fans".
