Cloud Imperium Games recently hosted a 24-hour livestream for their ambitious space trading sim Star Citizen . If you want to watch the whole thing, you can totally do that .

In addition to the live stream and a brand new website, the Star Citizen team have also created a gorgeous in-engine trailer for one of the game's ships:
