Kickstarter stats go official - 33% of game projects succeed

Bowing to the inevitable, Kickstarter has launched a statistics page, ending the need for laborious data scraping in order to find out how the funding platform performs. It is now perfectly apparent to everyone that the majority of gaming projects fail, with just 695 successes to tot up against 1,364 failures for a 33% win rate. That said, games are ranked fourth in terms of overall money raised, despite being the eight most numerous category overall. Interesting stuff for those keen on small to mid-sized development and alternate funding.
