Chris Roberts' Star Citizen campaign has entered its final week, and he's published a new video to drive hard towards the end. Check out his Wing Commander hat, shirt and jacket! The project's tally so far is now past $3.3 million, which already makes it one of the most heavily supported crowdfunding projects ever. Numbers currently break down between $2.2M at RSI and $1.1M via Kickstarter. Chris is aiming to Kickstart $1.5M and break $4M total by Monday, November 19. The project has a real shot at making it! At each $100,000 interval, information on a new star system is also released.
