Space sim Star Citizen has reached its $2 million in funding goal, with a quarter of it raised through Kickstarter, and the rest through the Roberts Space Industries website. As such, it can be said the game is going to launch...unless of course it's canceled for some reason like that Tom Hall project. Anyway, to space sim fans with beastly PCs and sad, dusty joysticks: I recommend getting excited.
The funding process isn't over yet, though: the Kickstarter campaign ends November 19, so there's still plenty of time to give it more love if you haven't yet. As is often the case, a veritable heap of cash could be thrown at the project between now and then, especially in its final hours.
