Double Fine’s adventure project racks up $400,000 in no time
By that we mean one day.
This is pretty incredible. Less than 24 hours ago, Double Fine announced a Kickstarter campaign to privately fund its upcoming point-and-click adventure title. The project aimed to raise $400,000, and when we reported about it only a few hours back, the project had already amassed $211,778.
The number has jumped to $427,272 at the time of writing, achieving its goal in less than a day. Nearly 10,000 fans have donated money for the project – a be super-collaboration between studio head Tim Schafer and Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert.
The campaign will continue until March 13, as originally planned. The extra bit collected will be used to fund company holidays, Schafer’s new Mercedes and a new candy dispenser.
We are just joking. Right, Schafer? Right?
