Star Citizen fuels its starships with $18 million in crowdfunded money

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Star Citizen's crowdfunding efforts have officially crossed the $18 million mark. First-person combat "on select lawless planets," a stretch goal should the game hit $20 million, was also announced in a post celebrating the milestone. To put this fundraising in space-related perspective, if you took each of those dollars and laid them end-to-end, they'd be more than half the diameter of the planet Mercury.

Star Citizen hit $17 million less than a week ago, and $15 million less than a month before that. In other news, Joystiq is currently running on emergency supply puns to describe the astronomical amount of money Star Citizen has raised.
