Crowdfund Bookie: Knite is a $43k hand-crafted adventure


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 projects for Knite and the Ghost Lights, Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim and Comic ConQuest as well as the Indiegogo project for 0 AD: Empires Ascendant concluded.

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.

Check out the week's results and our beautiful charts after the break.
