Star Citizen is the crowdfunding campaign that just won’t quit, adding another $2 million to its coffers within the last few days.

At time of writing, Star Citizen had attracted $31,137,083 in funding from 313,526 backers, an average of about $99 each.

That’s up from $29 million just three days ago.

The latest letter from the chairman confirms the unlocking of the $31 million stretch goal – the RSI Orion. It’s a mining platform with “high-grade turret-mounted tractor beam arrays, durable exterior-accessible ‘saddlebags’ for mineral storage and a cabin designed by the team that brought you the Aurora and Constellation”.

The Orion was selected by backers, as the next ship will be; currently, the Explorer is winning the popular vote.

Star Citizen is expected on PC in 2014.
