Shadowrun Returns Kickstarter closes on $1.8 million
Over the weekend, Harebrained Schemes celebrated the end of its Kickstarter funding period for Shadowrun Returns, netting more than four a half times its initial goal.
Having asked for just $400,000, Harebrained Schemes won over $1.8 million in funding from more than 36,000 backers.
The minimum reward pledge of $15 proved most popular with 15,502 backers, but higher tiers proved unusually popular, too, with 4,247 pledges in the $125 category. Three backers took the developer up on its $10,000 offer, resulting in an average pledge of just over $50 per person.
In addition, Harebrained Schemes received a number of pledges through other avenues from those who can’t (or choose not to) use Kickstarter’s Amazon payments system, for a final total of $1,895,772.
In the celebratory video below, Harebrained Schemes invites fan and backers to continue their involvement in the project at Shadowrun.com.
Shadowrun Returns is expected on PC, Mac and Linux in early 2013.
