Double Fine's Tim Schafer is counting down the hours until the conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign that's seen more than $3M donated toward the company's next
game. Initially launched to raise a paltry (ahem) $400,000, the
campaign has, at time of writing, garnered some $3.1 million to go
toward Schafer's madcap schemes and/or equally madcap point-'n'-click
revival, Double Fine Adventure. Who knows how much he'll have by the drive's conclusion at 3PM PST? Well, anyone watching the video stream immediately below these words, for starters.
The prizes for the top three
pledges – some 114 of them in total – have all been earmarked to
existing donors, but there's still plenty of lower- and mid-tier
pledge rewards available should you feel like becoming a part of the
effort. Schafer's posted instructions to get hold of a pre-paid
credit card for funding purposes, and will be livestreaming the
conclusion of the Kickstarter campaign to the feed above.
company's also asked that, as the drive winds down, followers stick
to the video feed rather than reloading the page every second, as that
could crash the website – blocking last-minute donations to this
and other drives alike. You hear that, Internet? You are
becoming dangerously addicted to altruism by proxy.
