Record Number Of Games Funded On Kickstarter In 2021

This is only the third time more than 400 projects in this category have reached their mark

The number of video games successfully funded on Kickstarter reached a new high last year.

That’s according to research from Ico Partners’ Thomas Bidaux, who reports that 441 projects reached their funding milestones in 2021. This is only the third time that more than 400 games have been successfully funded on Kickstarter.

That doesn’t translate to a record amount of money, however. These games brought in $24 million in funding, a $2 million drop year-on-year. The majority of successfully funded projects brought in between $10,000 and $50,000.

“With fewer “hits”, last year’s numbers are showing more than an excellent stability for the video game category, but a slight growth,” Bidaux wrote.

“The trend is not significant enough that we can expect Kickstarter to have the prominence it had in the 2012–2015 period, but with more video projects than ever before meeting their goals, it makes Kickstarter a reliable platform to crowdfund the right video game projects.”
