Make My MMO: Crowdfunding March 2 - March 8, 2014

Jef Reahard

Crowdfunding news was lighter than normal for the week ending March 8th, but we nonetheless learned a bit more about space sim sandboxes Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen. The Phoenix Project also updated us on the status of its City of Titans spiritual sequel, which now boasts a new president and a new board of directors and is "deep in pre-production."

Click past the cut for the rest of this week's crowdforged notables.
