‘Exploding Kittens’ Becomes Most Backed Kickstarter Ever
Ryan Simmons / 5 years ago
Crowdfunding campaigns have been getting weirder. Just last week we reported on the story that a guy from Norwich had started offering dates with himself on Indiegogo, but this week we have news of the most backed Kickstarter ever – ‘Exploding Kittens’.
Don’t worry, 100,000 people haven’t have backed a campaign to blow up every kitten on the planet, but rather they have backed a card game that is specifically “for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats”. Pretty much the whole internet rolled into one.
The card game is actually the brainchild of video game developers Elan Lee and Shane Small and illustrated by Matthew Inman, who were originally asking for just $10,000. It has since raised over $4 Million through the support of its record breaking 108,000 backers.
