Just a few hours remain for crowdsourcing experiment
Investment for Tim Shafer’s adventure game project has passed $3 million, according to figures on its official Kickstarter page.
The crowdfunding project passed the milestone on Monday with just a few hours before the experiment draws to a close.
The Kickstarter campaign, widely seen as the most successful ever, hit $1 million in a dramatic 24 hours. At one stage it was accumilating $839 per minute.
Double Fine passed the $2m milestone about ten days later, while the third million was made after another 22 days.
Some $400,000 was originally sought to bankroll Double Fine’s new adventure game, as well as a documentary that will explore the development process of the point-and-click title.
Double Fine will present a special livestream to mark the end of the Kickstarter campaign.
