Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter project Closes On Over .3 Million

Power to the people! The Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter campaign has closed, having raised $3,336,371 at the time of writing, over eight times the original goal of $400,000.

Although the minimum contribution was $1, 47,946 offered up the base amount of $15, which entitled those backers to a copy of the game on release.

24,636 gave $30, which netted backers the soundtrack too; more than 11,500 gave over $100 get their names added to the list of credits in-game; with over 250 backers giving $500 or more, fleshing out the rewards at the very top end.

Congrats to Double Fine on the most successful Kickstarter campaign EVER! Double Fine boss Tim Schafer promised the game will be “ten times as good as Grim Fandango”, during the victorious livestream. Even half as good would be brilliant, Tim!

We probably won't sit through the credits for this one, though.

I'm now wondering how I'd feel if I stumped up cash for a game before it was made, I guess it would be a risk but perhaps with customer funding it might have a better chance of being made.

I <3 TIM!

(Don't tell my girlfriend!)

I have such confidence in Double Fine that I gladly gave my money over as soon as I heard they were doing it.

What I didn't realise was that by "Adventure" they meant "point and click adventure" in the style of Monkey Island, Grim Fandango and Day of the tentacle... all of which Tim worked on and were all fantastic.

Hopefully we will get Psychonauts 2 after this too.
