Star Citizen has $160,000 in pledges from 3,000 backers

The website for Star Citizen, Chris Roberts' new game, is offline due to the "overwhelming response" to the game's campaign launch. A mirror site is handling web-based duties for Roberts Space Industries for the time being. Last we were able to access the page, the game already received 3,000 pledges in the amount of $160,000. The funding goal is $2 million, and the team hopes to bring more angel investors on board to fully fund the game. It is slated for release in 2014. Thanks, Polygon.
