On Thursday, Kickstarter announced that it has hit a brand new milestone. A total of 10,000 game projects have successfully been funded since the funding portal’s launch in 2009. The crowdfunding giant revealed in a blog post:
“The day after Kickstarter launched in 2009, Eric Berlin launched Kickstarter’s very first Games project, offering to make nine interconnected crossword puzzles. ‘I’d love to see this work if only to prove that puzzle makers can connect directly with an audience that loves great puzzles,’ he wrote. He found his proof — in the form of 163 backers. Since then, Games creators and backers have connected over and over again. In fact, we just topped a nice round milestone: 10,000 Games projects have been successfully funded on Kickstarter. How did this happen? Well, it’s all about people: 2.46 million of them have backed a Games project, pledging a total of $613 million. And 1.45 million of those supporters have backed more than one. Those are the backers we talk about when we talk about our Games community: the ones who return to Kickstarter again and again to discover and support new ideas.”
Kickstarter also went on to list various games that are now available, including Scythe, Night in the Woods, Secret Hitler, Hyper Light Drifter, Organ Attack, and Vast: The Crystal Caverns. Coming soon games are Rain World, Thimbleweed Park, Yooka-Laylee, Pinstripe, and Bears vs. Babies. The crowdfunding platform went on to add that backers should consider looking at these games currently seeking funding Pine, Narita Boy, Mordhau, Starfighter Inc., All Walls Must Fall, Mages of Mystralia, Rising Sun, Dragoon, Cytosis, and 878 Vikings.
