Kickstarter is a great place to find new video games, and there has been a lot of money tossed around on the crowdfunding platform since it first hit the web back in 2009. This year has been no exception as we’ve seen several record breaking games hit it big on Kickstarter. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the Top 5 earners on the platform so far this year.
Planescape: Torment was a huge hit with the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and RPG crowd when it was released back in 1989. It won numerous awards that year, and is widely considered by a lot of folks to be one of the best RPG games around. inXile Entertainment required the rights to Torment, and Torment: Tides of Numenera hit Kickstarter earlier this year as the “spiritual successor” to Planescape. How did it do? Well, they needed $900,000 and came away with a whopping $4,188,927… let that sink in for a minute. If you’re wondering when you’ll get to play this record breaking game, it’s going to be a while as we’re looking at the end of 2014 or early in 2015. Torment: Tides of Numenera will be available on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
