The lights are on
Star Citizen has passed another funding goal, hitting the $30 million mark. Developer Roberts Space Industries have also released a new developer diary detailing the challenges of reinvigorating a lost genre.
You can check out the developer diary for the game below. Each funding hurdle means new features for the game, and passing the $30 million mark adds a huge space yacht ship to the game – The Origin 890 JUMP. There are only two more stretch goals to meet for the game. The $31 and $32 million marks will each add new ships to the game.
For more on Star Citizen, you can our interview with the man behind the project, Chris Roberts, by heading here.
Thanks to Doug Maley for the news tip!

Ah, a developer who is willing to harness the complete power of PC, truly amazing.
I am really looking forward to this game, the way it's going it's looking to define the actual next generation of video games in general (ie. not consoles).
I have to admit, there's a lot of ambition insofar as the promises are concerned, but they are not being held to any specific release dates or publisher pressure to get the game out.
I don't think they're going to have an excuse next year if they come out with a message that they're going to need more funding though, but I'll remain optimistic where that's concerned.
1.5 years left until full game release . Can't wait , will love to see their motion capturing in Squadron 42 cutscenes .
There is more than two more stretch goals, they only announce two at a time. They have a poll up for the 33 million goal right now and they will have two more polls for what ships to add for the 34 and 35 goals.
