Ain't that a kickstarter!

This is an amazing Kickstarter project. Double Fine Productions and 2Player Productions were trying to raise $400,000 to produce a point and click game.

This was because when they took their ideas to the usual suspects within the computer gaming industrytThey were told that people did not want point and click adventure games any more.

Double Fine Productions thought there were plenty of people who still wanted to buy.  So they started with Kickstarter, the funding crowdsourcing site, looking for 400,000.

Within 8 hours they had hit their target and there was still 32 days to go.  as off today there were over 44,000 backers who have pledged over $1.5 million.  There are 31 days still to go.

The power of gamers is astounding.

 


Double Fine Productions was founded in 2000 by industry veteran Tim Schafer (Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango), the San Francisco-based company has established itself as a unique creative force with critically-acclaimed titles such as Pyschonauts, Brutal Legend, Costume Quest, Stacking, Iron Brigade, Once Upon a Monster, and Double Fine Happy Action Theater.
