PSA: Double Fine’s Kickstarter campaign ends in three days
Or 61 hours if you want to be technical about it. Sheesh.
Yup, yup, it’s been a month already. Double Fine’s Kickstarter campaign, which promised death to the billion-dollar housing publisher houses but never quite made it because it’s unrealistic (and not intended), is coming to its end in three days.
The fund collecting drive was carted forward by industry icon Tim Schafer after he failed to solve the pitching-to-the-publisher puzzle about his new point-and-click adventure title. Support from fans poured in right off the bat, with the goal of amassing $400,000 for the project meeting in under a day. The project so far has collected $2,687,272 with the help of 73,460 backers.
You have three days or 61 hours to pledge your support to the project, if you haven’t already. There are a number of benefits to be had – for $15 you can get the game for free, plus early beta access on the platform of your choice. If you are feeling overtly generous, a donation of $10,000 will net you lunch with Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert, a tour of the Double Fine’s office, and a host of other stuff. Take pics!
