Supporters Pledged $480 million to Kickstarter in 2013
Filed under: KICKSTARTER

Over 3 million people pledged $480 million to Kickstarter projects throughout 2013. In 2012, 2.2 million pledged $320 million. The games category of Kickstarter still reigns as the top pledging category with $202 million pledged across 8000 projects.

Of course, this doesn't mean that all $480 million went to successful fundraisers. This is just what was pledged, whether the project was successful or not. Despite that, this still shows how successful Kickstarter has been as a whole. It might have been considered a passing fad when it first came about, but apparently it's filling a void that many, from creator to consumer, wanted.

I actually pledged money to a Kickstarter project this year, something I swore I would never do. Anyone else take part in a Kickstarter crowd-fundraiser?

So far I donated for Wasteland 2, Dreamfall Chapters and that lady that made Gabriel Knight.

All related to games I liked a lot but didn't pay for.
  Reikhardt: Impeccable taste sir.
Rafal: Why thank you.
