Crowdfund Bookie, August 4 - 10: Warmachine Tactics, Organic Panic


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.

This week in crowdfunding, the Kickstarter campaigns for Warmachine: Tactics, Organic Panic, Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, Lioness, Adventurezator: When Pigs Fly, Deus Ex Machina 2: Reboot, Yargis and Ghost Encounters: Deadwood ended.

Warmachine: Tactics, a turn-based tactics game for PC and Mac based on the Warmachines tabletop game, earned the most money this week ($1,578,950), and had the most funders of the group, as 19,829 people backed the game. Space arcade game Yargis had the highest average pledge per person, with each funder averaging $275.05, thanks to one brave backer in particular that ponied up over $5,000.
