The Kickstarter project for Double Fine’s Adventure closed at $3.3 million, and we have the complete stats for you. This has to be one of the incredibly successful Kickstarter campaigns to date, and one of the reasons was because of Time Shafer’s popularity.
The fund raiser lasted for a month and 87,138 people backed the project. With 40,000 of them pledging more than $15. You have to pay more than $15 to ensure you get the copy of the game was well.
I think this is a great initiative, but for the lesser developers, Kickstarter probably won’t be that helpful. But hey, there’s no harm in trying. Considering Double Fine’s target was $400k, they’ve accumulated almost ten times the money, and Shafer said at a celebratory event that the game “will be ten times as good”.
