It has been announced how many donations Kickstarter, one of the most popular fundraising platforms in the world, collected in 2020. According to the statements made, users made donations of 23 million dollars through the platform. Here are the top 10 games that have managed to raise the most donations throughout the year.
The video game industry is a huge industry that grows more and more every day. On the one hand, the world’s leading developer companies, on the other hand, independent developers with insufficient budgets are doing their best to develop a new video game. However, it is sometimes not possible to pour enough money into this sector, which requires huge budgets. As such, independent developers, in particular, take the path of fundraising platforms.
One of the most well-known fundraising platforms in the world is Kickstarter. The platform, which has made serious contributions to the development of at least some games that have been launched and become popular so far, works on a voluntary basis. The developers are promoting the games they have uploaded to the platform, and indicate the amount of money required to complete the project. The users who are satisfied with the promotion also provide assistance according to their budgets in order to help the development of the project.
