Eiyuden Chronicle raises $4.5 million on Kickstarter
46 thousand people backed RPG Eiyuden Chronicle on Kickstarter, having pledged the total of $4.5 million. This is almost 900% more than the amount initially requested. So far, only two games have shown better results.
Kickstarter campaign has ended for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, an RPG game inspired by classic JRPGs. Developer Rabbit & Bear Studios launched the campaign on July 27 and in just two hours raised the required initial $500 thousand.
Success ratio on Kickstarter highest since 2012
Thomas Bidaux, CEO of gaming consultancy firm ICO Partners, has shared data on how the first half of 2019 has treated video games on Kickstarter.
Apparently, pretty well.
In 2019 so far, backers have pledged over $10m, which is the best result since 2015.
