One of the biggest problems with Kickstarter is that it doesn't allow funding for companies outside of the United States but this fall the crowd-funding site will inch towards a more international approach. This fall companies in the United Kingdom will be able to fund their projects just like their comrades in the United States. This move expands on what is already possible in the UK related to Kickstarter because UK residents can already contribute to U.S.-based projects.
To date, Kickstarter has helped successfully fund over 699 game projects, with three managing to raise over $1 million. Over 60,000 projects have been funded on the site since its launch. The biggest project so far has been Double Fine Adventure, which raised over $3 million.
