This is one of those stories that will make people wonder whether the glass is half-empty or half-full when it comes to the statistics of success and failure related to games and Kickstarter. According to data gathered by Appsblogger and put into a handy-dandy infographic, almost half of the game projects looking for funding on Kickstarter managed to get funded, while more than half do not. Of the 1,729 game projects – which included card and board games too – around 43 percent were successfully funded.
The data gathered by Appsblogger also shows that successful projects have shorter durations – on average 38 days – while failed projects are up for an average of 43 days. Finally the most interesting data is that only 8.5 percent of fully-funded campaigns have received more than double their target. In other words, it's pretty damned rare.
