Dark Souls board game raises over $5 million through Kickstarter0 Comments
Dark Souls fans who are keen on a little analog action set in their preferred game universe can now rejoice, as Dark Souls: The Board Game has been successfully funded via popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter.
The tabletop game's campaign seems to have been met with much more success than anticipated: the original goal of around $70,000 was met rapidly — right around the first three minutes after going live — and the game went on to draw in an incredible $5.4 million dollars from close to 32,000 backers.
On its way to that towering figure, the campaign also hit every single one of its stretch goals, meaning fans can expect 10 player classes, 10 armor sets, 10 invaders, 14 grunt types, six different allies to summon, and five different bosses.
No doubt shocked by their immense success, the company behind the game, Steamforged Games Ltd., provided an update after the campaign closed, thanking fans for their dedication.
"A heartfelt thank you from everybody at Steamforged Games Ltd.," the update says. "We've thoroughly enjoyed this campaign and look forward to keeping you all in the loop as the game progresses. We are honoured to have your support and to have spoken with you all in the comments and via the inbox."
Backers can expect to get their hands on Dark Souls: The Board Game sometime around the estimated April 2017 delivery date.
