Kickstarter Growth

Games funded by Kickstarter campaigns accounted for about 20% of overall sales on the platform, growing for the 4th year in a row. Currently, there are over 20,000 tabletop game projects seeking funding on the platform with an untold additional number seeking funding on Indiegogo and other platforms. Given than roughly half of the games seeking funding on crowdfunding platforms fail, that is still a lot of games heading to the market. While the funded ones obviously have demand from their backers, it is a crap shoot for publishers as to whether they should produce enough of a crowdfunded game to have copies to put into distribution.
