Chris Roberts has posted a new video thanking space sim fans for contributing to his elaborate crowdfunding campaign. Their total crossed the incredible $10,000,000 mark today! All this cash has come from 183,500 fans, which makes the average contribution of $55 significantly higher than the typical $30-35 that many projects see. This milestone means that Cloud Imperium Games will be building their own motion capture studio to enhance the creation of video sequences. Check out the technology that will go into it in the vid below.
Stay tuned, as big things are coming to the Roberts Space Industries website! In just over two weeks, we’ll be launching the all-new website with a 24-hour livestream full of new information about the game and other exciting reveals.
