Full Disclosure: I have financially backed Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night on Kickstarter.

Koji Igarashi’s Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has broken $2 million dollars.

The crowdfunding campaign has raked in quite a bit of money in a short amount of time – with over $2 million dollars the Kickstarter still has 27 days to go. With the campaign reaching $2 million, a boss rush mode is going to be added.

There are currently two stretch goals within reach – at $2.25 million a Retro Level will be added to the game, as well as a classic mode at $2.5 million. You can find the Kickstarter for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night here.

    Not exactly. 26,774 backers is a very small number of consumers.

    People willing to contribute to the making of a game is not the same as those interested/willing to pay for the completed product.

    The bigger consideration is that this game will likely show up on home consoles as a mainline, technical AAA, production, and a big publisher such as Konami never would have thought of making it except as either a handheld console or or PSN/XBL release.

    $2 million in a week. People have given $2 million for a IP that is yet to be created. Something EA would be masturbating over all week if it was them.

    That’s not much compared to the amount of dosh they hope to get from mobile cash sinks.
    Plus the effort/reward ratio is way better, simple basic games and a lot of money vs a big creative undertaking managing backers and viral marketing.

    Now classic mode sounds really interesting. The classic style Castlevanias need a new home as well.
