Crowdfund Bookie, September 8 - 14: Project Phoenix, StarCraft Universe


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 Project Phoenix, Gridiron Thunder, StarCraft Universe and Pro Pinball: Timeshock ended.

Project Phoenix earned the most money and had the highest number of backers by a landslide this week, hauling in $1,014,600 thanks to 15,802 funders. Gridiron Thunder, the Ouya football game that has been embroiled in controversy with its involvement in Ouya's Free the Games Fund, had the highest average pledge per person ($934.48). This was due to a handful of suspicious backers that each pledged over $10,000 to the project.
