On February 7, a project called Double Fine Adventure launched, and along with it a record-setting 24 hours. Things haven’t really slowed down since. A third project reached $1 million, another revived an all-time great series, and 33 Kickstarter-funded films made it into SXSW. It’s been a memorable month.
On Tuesday that month was bookended by Double Fine’s big finish, commemorated with a live stream of the project’s champagne-soaked countdown. The final tally? A startling $3.3 million pledged from 87,141 people. It wasn’t that long ago that 87,000 people had even heard of Kickstarter.
