Cloud Imperium Games released a new video of its upcoming space simulator Star Citizen.

The video showcases the process of creating ships, also introducing the teams and developers responsible for the process of bringing each warbird from the concept phase to flyable,

We also get a part giving an update on the MISC Razor, which is a really sleek racing starship that basically looks like a space-borne F1 racer.

On top of this, we learn that the game’s crowdfunding campaign has passed another milestone, and is now above 177 million dollars. More precisely, the game is now sitting comfortably on $177,027,542, with 1,972,571 registered users.

You can check out the video below, and see for yourself why I can’t wait to do some healthy space racing. If you want to see more of Star Citizen, you can enjoy a spectacular vertical slice of the single-player campaign Squadron 42, a version of the same footage with commentary from the developersa teaser featuring Mark Hamilla video on hoverbikes, one on atmospheric flight, and one on the Cutlass Black. You can also read more about the plans for the next major update, that will be alpha 3.1 in March.

For the sake of full disclosure, do keep in mind that the author of this post is a backer of Star Citizen.
