Double Fine’s upcoming adventure game has been successfully funded by gamers and Kickstarter. The indie studio opened the opportunity for fans to support the proposed project more than a month ago. In less than 24 hours after opening, Double Fine met their minimum budget of $400,000 and then broke it to the tune of $1,000,000.
The Kickstarter window for backing the game officially closed yesterday. The final dollar count of support listed on the project’s page? $3,336,371. This adventure game better be awesome, dangit!
This morning, Schafer and the Double Fine crew released their first backer-only update. It was a video, and it was hilarious.
It’s there that I have elected to stop with the updates. I was one of the backers for the project, and I’ll be seeing updates and behind-the-scenes information as it comes. What I won’t be doing, however, is relaying that information with you folks.
I know, I know, I’m a big stinkin’ jerk that you totally hate. But, here’s the thing, Schafer and Double Fine requested in their first private update that all information discussed within the project be kept quiet. In the spirit of the project itself, I definitely feel it’s important to meet that request honestly. This is something special, and I totally hope it’s a positive experience for both Double Fine and all of the fans that chose to support them.
If you want to get technical, I suppose that telling you folks about Schafer’s request to keep everything form here on out private is actually a violation of our silent agreement. Oh well, I’m sure they won’t mind my sha–mmmffffff–wha–mmmfffmfmmfmmm–no!-mmmfmfmmfmmm
