Double Fine Kickstarter total nearly matches Grim Fandango budget

With Double Fine’s tremendous Kickstarter campaign now breaching the $2.7 million mark, dev boss Tim Schafer has revealed a rather surprised little fact on his Twitter account.

“$2.7MM!?! And it looks like our hourly rate is going up! Um, people… three million dollars… that was the budget of Grim Fandango!” Schafer wrote.

Grim Fandango is one of Schafer’s most popular games, and shares the same genre as the game that this campaign is funding; a point and click adventure.

With two days of the campaign left, Schafer also revealed that his team were looking into doing a livestream countdown for the end. Given how much they’ve earned, we’re expecting to see the good champagne at the celebrations.
