As the year of 2015 closes and the new year begins, it is no doubt that some people will be celebrating their achievements for the year. One well-known crowdfunding company launched in 2009, known as Kickstarter, recently announced their thanks to a specific community that have been supporting their projects: Gamers.
In their recent summary, they have received a tremendous support from the gaming community by managing to pledge over $144.4 million and a total of 2,259 successful projects. A majority of their projects came from tabletop games and video games. One of the major games funded was a card game called "Exploding Kittens" where players draw cards until they pick the exploding kitten card and would well- explode. The game received over $8.8 million backers which made it the most funded games project in history.
Videogamers were also not forgotten as some games were funded during the year of 2015: Shenmue 3 -which is a sandbox Kungfu videogame, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - a side-scrolling RPG, and many others as well. One particular game that caught my eye was Dreamfall Catchers: The longest journey (check out the trailer below) where the story follows Zoe a dreamer in a world of fantasy.
