Double Fine’s Kickstarter Project Has Now Raised Over 2 Million Dollars
The game developer’s attempt to raise $400,000 to fund a point-and-click adventure game, using popular fundraising website Kickstarter has exploded in a way I think no one was expecting. Double Fine made the original goal much sooner than expected: about 8 hours after the site first launched.
Twelve days after the February 8th launch, they’ve hit more than two million. In fact, as of me writing this article (10:13 in the morning) they’ve got $2,004,987. The different reward levels, which range from $15 (a free copy of the game and access to all discussion boards and the video series) to $10,000, which includes all previous rewards, plus a tour of the offices and lunch with Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert. There are actually higher reward levels listed on Double Fine’s main site, if $10,000 isn’t enough for you. The result of the fundraiser is currently expected to be out in October this year, for PC, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS. It will also be available in four other languages: French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
