People pledged $83 million towards games on Kickstarter in 2012


According to the very amazing Best of Kickstarter 2012, amazing people around the world pledged $83,144,565 to games. I’m having a hard time writing this right now, because the game I’m working on, Monsters!, is among them. My heart is swelling! Of the 13 creative categories in Kickstarter, the Games category had the most money pledged (though Music had the most funded projects with 5,067).

Scroll through the slideshow they have up there. Seriously. I challenge you not to cry when you get to December and see the first marriage proposal through Kickstarter via – what else? – a video game.

Thank you, everyone, for your love and support, and for making some of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. Sometimes the Internet brings the world together in beautiful ways.
