The Kickstarter campaign for the Pebble Watch ended in May 2012 with $10,266,845. Funding for Star Citizen currently stands at $10,701,217 and counting.

"That’s a record you should be proud of. But we're just getting started!" Cloud Imperium Games wrote.

Funding for Star Citizen on Kickstarter closed in November 2012 with $2,134,374. Cloud Imperium Games continues to accept funds through its website.

Star Citizen has been in development at Cloud Imperium Games for more than a year. The game itself includes a "sophisticated storyline" that is set in a persistent online universe.

According to Roberts, it will fuse elements of his previous games, Wing Commander and Freelancer. Support for the virtual reality headset Oculus Rift is planned.
