How did the platform reach this milestone? It’s broken down in a breakdown via the official Kickstarter blog, where it’s explained that 2.46 million people have backed a Games project, pledging a total of $613 million, with 1.45 million of them having backed multiple projects. These backers are a major part of the Kickstarter user base, and the ones that have managed to bring so many thousands of gaming-related projects to life.
The official blog offered up several suggestions to try as a thank you to some of its customers who found success on the platform, including games that have already released like Hyper Light Drifter and Night in the Woods, as well as the upcoming Thimbleweed Park and Yooka-Laylee.
