Cloud Imperium Games’ Star Citizen continues to march forward in crowd-funding as it was recently announced that the space sim garnered more than $49 million in funds till date. Speaking to The Verge, creator and industry legend Chris Roberts talks about how such a thing wouldn’t have been possible with normal publishers.

“If I had gone up to any publisher and said, ‘Hey, will you give me $50 million to do a space sim on PC only?’ everyone would say, ‘Get out of here.’ But we’re in a situation where we’re getting to do that.

“The biggest amount of pressure comes from myself. I can see this game. I’ve got a very clear picture of what I want it to be, and I get frustrated when we’re not moving as quickly as I want us to move. I want it to be the best thing I’ve ever played.”

Though there are similar games like Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky on the horizon, Roberts believes star Star Citizen will stand out from the pack. “For me, it’s all about feeling like I’m in the world. There’s an attention to detail you need to suspend that disbelief and for me that is the motto of Star Citizen. We’re going for that extra level of detail, so there’s a real tactile sense to your environment. It feels like it’s lived in.”

Star Citizen is currently slated for release in 2015. Are you looking forward to it? If so, let us know below.
