5 of The Top10 Funded Projects on Kickstarter are Videogames

by pumpkinpie65 Fri Sep 07, 2012 10:54 pm

I just came across this interesting article by The Economist. I didn't realize the OUYA was the second most funded project on the site, and I didn't realize that HALF of their top 10 most funded projects were videogame related!

It'll be interesting to see how high Planetary Annihilation goes. They've also got a good pedigree behind them.

It is even more telling if you go down to the Top 20, beacuse boardgames like Ogre (900K) are taking up many spots.
