Kickstarted game projects cross $20m mark

Crowd-funding site Kickstarter has been used to fund over $20 million worth of videogame-related projects, a new NYT report has it (via). That’s the figure for the past three year’s then, the site’s entire lifespan.

Double Fine’s Double Fine Adventure, which started a new wave of game projects to be submitted after it pulled in its $3.3 million, is said to be the second most funded project on the site, ever, only eclipsed by the 7 million dollar baby that is the Pebble E-Paper watch.

The average for game projects stands at $12,759, a figure that includes both successful and unsuccessful fundings. Games are passed by the design ($29,409) and tech ($27,677) categories only.

It was recently said that videogame projects pulled in $1,776,372 in Kickstarter’s first two years, a number that’s increased dramatically in 2012, following the likes of Double Fine Adventure, Wasteland 2, Shadowrun Returns, and most recently Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards.
