Kickstarter has released its mid-year games report for the first half of 2021. According to it, from January to July 1, 2021, 649 video game projects were submitted to the platform versus 588 during the same period last year from which 184 projects have managed to reach their funding goals. Over $13 million has been raised by video game projects from January to July 1, 2021, compared to $11 million during the same period last year.
The two projects that raised more than $500,000 went on to raise a lot more than that as Friday Night Funkin’ and Coral Island respectively raised $2.2m and $1.6m.
"Overall, 2021 so far is following the same stability we have observed for video games projects on the platform. There is a steady flow of video games creations that find funding on Kickstarter, and there is no sign of decline in sight," reads the report.
