Double Fine’s massively successful Kickstarter drive didn’t only deliver the green for Double Fine Adventure, but Kickstarter as well.
Videogame projects on the crowdfunding service pulled in $1,776,372 in the service’s first two years. Since the Tim Schafer studio did their thing though, the site has seen $2.9 million . Or $6.2 million if you want to include Adventure.
Furthermore, Double Fine’s project attracted 60,000 new donors, who have now funded other projects as well.
The second most successful videogame-related project right now seems to be that of Brian Fargo’s Wasteland 2, which has, with over two weeks to go, pulled in $1.8 million. That’s twice what was originally asked for.
