Video games projects raised $23 million on Kickstarter in 2020, the highest total since 2015 and a 35% increase year-on-year.
Interestingly, the number of crowdfunding campaigns for video games published on the platform was lower than in 2019 though, with a total of 1,331 compared to 1,403 the year before, according to the 2020 retrospective put together by Ico Partners.
Out of those 1331 projects, 408 met their goals and were funded, the highest number since 2014. The majority of the projects had a funding target of under $50,000 (see graph below), and only six raised over $500,000.
Among these were Kindred Fates, Sea of Stars, and My Time at Sandrock. Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes raised over $3 million, making it the most successful video games campaign of the year, followed by The Wonderful 101: Remastered and Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, which both raised over $2 million.
