Richard Garriot's Kickstarter succeeded, raising almost double the goal in funds.
The Kickstarter for Richard Garriot's new RPG, Shroud of the Avatar, ended yesterday just shy of doubling its goal of $1 million. The final total of funds pledged through Kickstarter ended up at $1,919,275. The time ending on Kickstarter hasn't stopped pledges from being made through the game's official site. As of this moment, just over $150,000 has been pledged in addition, taking the total funds raised to well over $2 million.
The following thank you was released following the finish of the Kickstarter campaign:
"A sincere thank you goes out to all our backers for pledging your support to “Shroud of the Avatar” and helping us raise almost double our Kickstarter goal!
