released a news blurb touting Star Citizen's
newly minted status as the most successful crowdfunded project of all time. The upcoming space sim beat out the $10,266,844 pledged to Pebble Watch
to claim the title.
The update also offers a bit of clarity with regard to the recent 300 series trailer
. "The video you saw wasn't just made in-engine, it used actual game models," Cloud Imperium explains. "You're looking at the 300i mesh you will see in Star Citizen
and not some high-poly fake created for cutscenes and good PR. What you're seeing is what you'll play."
