"WoooooooooOOOOoooOoOoooOOooo! We did it! 100% funded in just over eight hours. You people are amazing!," read the Kickstarter page for Tim Schafer's Double Fine Adventure today.
According to Kickstarter, every week, tens of thousands of people pledge millions of dollars to projects listed on its site. But never has a project topped $1 million, much less two in one day.
One of the projects is the Elevation Dock designed by Casey Hopkins, the founder of ElevationLab in Portland, Ore. The gist of the Elevation Dock is to use streamlined solid aluminum design to create a dock for iPhones or iPods that is simple to use, easy to undock, and works without a case.
The dock reached $1 million today and at the time of this writing had 9,942 backers who had pledged $1,084,006.
The fact that the original funding goals were exceeded is not a problem. As Schafer writes on his Kickstarter page, "All money raised will go to make the game and documentary better. Additional money means it can appear on more platforms, be translated into more languages, have more music and voice."
