Double Fine Adventure by Double Fine and 2 Player Productions, via Kickstarter. This is the project that raised a million dollars in one day! The video is very funny. It has now raised a total of over 3 million.
This is the actual Kickstarter page for Double Fine Adventure, which would eventually end up titled Broken Age. As you’ll be able to see on the page, the campaign raised over 3 million dollars in about a month which is staggering, especially at the time. Also, you can see the original pitch that convinced 87,142 people to open up their wallets. One of the key aspects they promote is that the production would be public and transparent, in addition to appealing to nostalgia.
(prestent)Earlier this week, crowd-funding site Kickstarter set a new record when the Elevation iPhone Dock became the first project to close in on the $1 million dollar mark. But that milestone has officially been bested. In its first 24 hours, gaming studio Double Fine Adventure’s Kickstarter project has raised more than $1 million and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Ron Gilbert (who basically can be quoted as the inventor of the graphic adventure game genre, writer of SCUMM, a cornerstone of LucasArts games) and Tim Schafer (Grim Fandango, Full Throttle) talking about adventure games. I am so thrilled that I could back them up at Kickstarter for their Double Fine Adventure Game. I wanted to pin this here, because I just saw the first snippet of their documentary on an exclusive Vimeo-channel and it is awesome, just like these guys.
