10,000 game projects funded via Kickstarter since site’s 2009 launch

Kickstarter has revealed that a total of 10,000 game projects have been funded on the crowd-funding site since its launch in 2009.

In total, the gaming category has received $613 million in crowdfunding from 2.46 million backers.

The most successful project to date is the horror board game title Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5 which raised $12.3 million, followed by the Oatmeal’s card game Exploding Kittens at $8.7 million.

The day after Kickstarter launched in 2009, Eric Berlin launched the site’s first games project, offering to make nine interconnected crossword puzzles.

Since then games creators and backers have connected to top the 10,000 funded games projects.

‘Out thanks to all the creators and backers who made this happen,’ said Kickstarter in a statement.
