“Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5” Becomes Second Most-Funded Game on Kickstarter

With Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5’s campaign set to close next Saturday (January 7th) on Kickstarter, Adam Poots’ latest project has not only raised $8.6 million from nearly 16,000 backers, but it has also become the second most-funded game on the crowdfunding platform.

kingdom-deathKingdom Death: Monster 1.5 is described a massive cooperative board game. Players must survive a nightmare-harrow world by fighting for their lives against an onslaught of terrifying creatures. They will also use objects acquired from battles to build civilizations.Poots returned to the crowdfunding platform just four years after securing $2 million for the original Kingdom Death. He launched the campaign last month, originally seeking $100,000. The project met its initial target within minutes and also secured $5 million during the first week.

Poots recently stated:

“The runaway train of success helped pack the game with more original art, in-depth gameplay, and fantastically sculpted minis than even I dreamed of. A game this size could not feasibly be made without the community of supportive backers we found on Kickstarter. It’s too expensive to produce and too vivid for distribution. Through the experience of kickstarting Monster, I found a group of people that shares my vision for a blisteringly difficult game with a continually emerging story. I am truly humbled to share it with the world.”

The Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5’s base game is set to be delivered in 2017 while its expansion packs are staggered to be delivered by 2020. Prior to Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5’s funding success, Ouya had secured the second most-funded game spot on Kickstarter. That project raised $8,596,474 from 63,416 backers.
