Essentially, the folks at Double Fine Productions are raising money to create an adventure game. You know, those things that publishers don’t really think are worth making any more, because clearly we are over that phase as a gaming society. (Or whatever)
And on top of that, 2 Player Productions is going to film a documentary series about the development of the game as it happens! How cool is that?!
Well, being the Crème de la Crème of Kickstarter projects that this is, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that it met and exceeded its $400,000 goal in the first day. And now, with 25 days left in the Kickstarter campaign, it’s over 1.9 million dollars! Heck, it climbed by over a thousand just in the time its taken me to write the draft for this post and insert my weblinks!
Oh, did I mention that for a $15 pledge you get a DRM-free copy of the game for PC/MAC/Linux and access to a private beta? Very cool.
