Cloud Imperium Games Corporation (CIGC) is the company responsible for running the highly successful Kickstarter project, Star Citizen.
At the end of the funding campaign it had raised $6,238,563. That number has grown through additional pledges and donations and it is currently above $8 million suggesting that the company has managed to convince a large number of space sim supporters to rally around their first project.
The company was founded sometime back in 2011 by Chris Roberts. It made its first public appearance online on the 10th of September 2012 through a teaser website for Star Citizen.
CIGC is represented in-game in the Star Citizen Universe as Roberts Space Industries, one of many spaceship manufacturers with its own line of ships for players to fly.
Along with its main office in Austin, Texas, Chris has also established satellite offices in Los Angeles and Montreal. Each of these offices will handle different aspects of Star Citizen's development process.
