Star Citizen Funding Breaks $37 Million

Posted Thu, Jan 23, 2014 by Martuk

You read that right. Star Citizen has made yet another million bucks. The juggernaut from Chris Roberts continues to grow and so too does its content. With the $37 million stretch goal secured, players can now also expect to see the Tanga System added to the game.

Tanga System – At the heart of an unusual rectangular planetary nebula, lies Tanga System. The inner planets were engulfed as the star entered the red giant phase. The expanded habitable zone unfroze a small world on the former outer ring and for several hundred million years made it habitable. Life began to emerge and was just reaching a primitive state when the star collapsed into a white dwarf, throwing the planet back into a deep freeze, then blasting the atmosphere away with the resulting planetary nebula. That’s how the system was found: Only two worlds (speculation that there could have been three to four more) but both are dead planets with no atmosphere.

The next goal was selected by the community as too will be the one following that. For now, the $38 million stretch goal will secure the UDS-2943-01-22 System. Read all about it and more in the latest Letter from the Chairman.

Star Citizen recently launched its new Organization system for backers. Be sure to see what Ricoxg thinks about the new system in his recent article.
