It was bound to happen eventually, but considering no other game is even close to having this much support this early in its life it would be remiss not to tip one's hat to Chris Roberts and co.
The goal, of course, was Star Citizen's backer count. It's since surged past 1 million, with the total figure at the time of writing standing at 1,001,218.
Star Citizen itself has raised US$92,443,506 (again, at the time of writing), leaving the average pledge per backer at just over US$92.33. That's comfortably over three figures in Australian dollars, more than what most people pay for a new game, let alone one years away from release.
For posterity, the lucky member to break the seven figure mark was Edenstar. They were initially confused by the overly warm welcome, but the reasons soon became clear.
For TAYbies who are backers, how much have you spent in the 'verse? I jumped at the start and I've got a 300i, although it's been an awfully long time since I've even thought about flying. (I should rectify that soon.)
