Over $20m pledged to game Kickstarters but only 25% reach funding goals
Gaming Kickstarters have accumulated $20 million in pledges, according to the New York Times, with Shadowrum Returns, Wasteland 2, and Double Fine Adventure the highest earners, respectively. Not all succeed as well as the aforementioned projects though, said a Kickstarter representative speaking to Kotaku, who said only 25% of game projects reach funding goals compared to 45% of all projects posted through Kickstarter. Game projects are in fourth place on the donation list behind film/video, music and design categories.
