Breaking down the 23 projects into general genre-based categories, we find that strategy games were the kings of crowdfunding in June. Six strategy games earned $3,610,381 thanks to 50,513 funders. That's due mostly to Hex and Double Fine's Massive Chalice, which combined for 97.14 percent of the genre ($3,507,270).
Meanwhile, three games in the shooter genre saw 1,353 combined funders average $94.72 per pledge, the highest average of all the genre catagories in June. Obviously, this smaller group of funders embodied the "tip of the bell curve," a statistically-extreme group that were willing to lay down much higher pledge amounts for shooter game projects. RPGs were on the opposite end of the spectrum, as four projects in the genre combined for an average of $24.75 per pledge.
