Video Games Raised Over £30 Million on Kickstarter Last Year

By Kirk Hamilton on at

Video games took in $46,177,705 (£31.9m) on Kickstarter in 2015, according to new stats released today by the crowdfunding company. That’s significantly more than 2014 but not quite as much as Kickstarter made from games in 2013.

Close to 25 per cent of that money came solely from Shenmue III and the Castlevania spiritual successor Bloodstained, which raised $6.3 million and $5.5 million respectively. Kickstarter says there were 421 successful video game projects this year — here’s hoping they’ll all actually deliver.

Kickstarter creators also raised a ton of money last year on tabletop games, garnering $88,916,039.
