The first public demo of Star Citizen

Ever wonder what $41 million looks like? It's a lot more blue than we would have thought.

This is the first public demonstration of Star Citizen, Chris Roberts' interstellar crowdfunded project. It's 14 minutes of pretty planes and space battles in a very early build. The yelling isn't part of the game – that's the crowd at PAX East. Chances are, a lot of those people are cheering because they're finally seeing their money in digital, playable form.

Star Citizen has raised more than $41 million in crowdfunding.
