Former Kickstarter sceptic's latest project clears goal 26 days ahead of deadline

Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts has seen his new Kickstarter project Star Citizen cruise past its target goal of $500,000 26 days before its deadline.

Presently having secured $517,336 from over 11,000 backers, PC space flight game Star Citizen is currently enjoying much attention as something of a Kickstarter celebrity.

It was launched on Kickstarter last week, notably shortly after Roberts told Develop the most prominent crowdfunding platform was not for him.

The game has also raised over $1.3 million on its own website.
