The Crowdfund Bookie crunches data from select successful Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns that ended during the week and produces pretty charts for you to look at.
Mobot Studios' "hand-crafted" side-scrolling adventure Knite and the Ghost Lights raised the most amount of money this week ($43,768) and had the highest number of backers (1,774). Comic ConQuest, an RPG set in the "halls of a comic con gone wrong," had the highest average pledge per backer for the week ($43.59).
This week also saw an entry from a successful, flexible-funded Indiegogo project in 0 AD: Empires Ascendant. The platform's flexible funding option ultimately negates the use of a campaign goal, as all pledges are guaranteed to transfer to the project creator. In this case, while 0 AD developer Wildfire Games did not meet its $160,000 goal, it will retain the $33,251 it did achieve. Aside from noting the percentage of its goal the project met, we're treating flexible funding campaigns like 0 AD as if they didn't have a goal when crunching our delicious crowdfunding numbers going forward, keeping in line with the spirit of those campaigns.
