Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts has seen his new Kickstarter project Star Citizen cruise past its target goal of $500,000 26 days before its deadline.
Presently having secured $517,336 from over 11,000 backers, PC space flight game Star Citizen is currently enjoying much attention as something of a Kickstarter celebrity.

It was launched on Kickstarter last week (http://www.develop-online.net/news/42289/Star-Citizen-makes-over-1m-in-crowdfunding), notably shortly after Roberts told Develop (https://www.develop-online.net/features/1731/Reaching-for-the-stars-Chris-Roberts) the most prominent crowdfunding platform was not for him.
The game has also raised over $1.3 million on its own website (http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/star-citizen/).
