From the outside looking in, one could perhaps assume Star Citizen’s Luminalia holiday is about Chris Roberts coming down your chimney, eating your wallet, and then leaving a JPEG of a cookie. A community-built machinima video would like to put that assumption to rest, as it tells a Christmastime story from the game’s universe.
The video, called Lights, starts with a couple about to celebrate the holiday when one of the pair has to leave for a work call. Later in the night, several of her friends arrive to her place of work, along with her beloved, to throw an impromptu holiday party on the deck of a ship.
The video features the efforts of nine different Star Citizen orgs, and while the message of the video is one that’s been often seen, it’s still a cute little bit of machinima work. The end of the video even offers a peek behind the scenes at the coordination needed to make it come to life. Get your warm holiday fuzzies in the video after the cut.
