Thank you to everyone who helped us reached that total – it’s incredibly heartening and uplifting to see so many people supporting Elite: Dangerous,

said David Braben, CEO of Frontier and co-author of the original Elite.

The help, feedback and ideas given and the enthusiasm shown has been remarkable, vividly illustrating the power of the community which is a force to be reckoned with in today’s connected society. This has made us even more determined than ever to produce a game worthy of such support and engage even further throughout development.

The Kickstarter project http://kck.st/YN6rVC is still accepting pledges until midnight GMT/7pm EST on Friday 4th January 2013 as the team pushes towards stretch goals of Mac support and increased numbers of playable ships, in response to requests from the community.

A PayPal payment option is also available via Frontier’s website elite.frontier.co.uk which will continue to accept contributions after the Kickstarter project closes.

The Elite: Dangerous Kickstarter campaign has generated over 105,000 comments so far on the project’s page, which Frontier believes is a current record for the site.
