When Tim Schafer and his company Double Fine Productions decided to find funding independent of a publisher for their next project, they turned to Kickstarter. It was worth a shot, and they only needed $400,000. Little did they know that Double Fine Adventure would set a record and draw an unprecedented number of backers.After just 24 hours not only had the $400,000 goal been reached (that happened in just 8 hours), the funds pledged had surpassed $1 million. Two days later the total went past $1.6 million. Yesterday, the Kickstarter project ended, and the final total has reached an incredible $3,336,371 through the backing of 87,142 people.The additional money raised is certainly not going to waste. Double Fine continued to add new rewards for backing the project as time went by. The funds means that Double Fine Adventure can appear on more platforms, and has been confirmed for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. Plus there will be no DRM accompanying the game and multiple language translations (French, Italian, German, and Spanish).On top of shipping to multiple platforms, there’s a documentary in development with a soundtrack created by Terrence Lee. The budget and scope of the documentary also seems to have increased due to the funds available.To say that using Kickstarter has been a success story for Double Fine is a bit of an understatement. Not only does it mean the team is well funded, it potentially sets them up to repeat the same formula again in the future and continue to develop independent games entirely through crowdfunding. Of course, it all depends on how good Double Fine Adventures turns out to be, but does anyone think it will be anything less than awesome?We should also expect other studios to follow Double Fine and start trying to fund games in this way. For example, Obsidian Entertainment is considering a Kickstarter project for a game that could end up being a sequel to Planescape: Torment.Read more at Kickstarter
