Star Citizen achieves Kickstarter goal with 26 days to go

Star Citizen has raised almost half a million dollars
Chris Roberts' Kickstarter for Star Citizen has surpassed its half-million goal, with 26 days left to go on the clock.

The Kickstarter is actually a secondary funding location for the project, opened after Chris Roberts' Roberts Space Industries site had difficulty handling donor traffic. That site currently has $1,348,900 in donations with 16 days of crowd funding left to go.

So, if our basic addition skills are working -- and we aren't saying they are -- the Kickstarter's current $517,000, plus the $1.349 million on the official site, means the game has received around $1.87 million in donations of its $2 million goal.
