In only a few hours, Double Fine’s Kickstart Campaign – set up to help fund the developer’s next project – has amassed over $600,000.
The campaign is collecting pledges to fund “a classic point-and-click adventure utilizing modern touch technology.” The goal was to achieve $400,000, which has since been surpassed in eight hours. The current funds are now clocking in at well over $600,000, with excess money to be spent on localization and multiple platforms.
Schafer expressed his excitement in seeing so many gamers backing the project, which has now reached over 16,000.
Think it will work? I hope so, because I would rather work directly for the fans than for anyone else.
If the Double Fine Kickstarter Adventure is a success, it could open the doors for all sorts of new funding possibilities, and all kinds of new games that could never happen in the old system. So basically I’m just talking about changing the entire world forever for the better. And getting a game out of it.
