inXile Entertainment's isometric role-playing game managed to raise $4.1 million at the close of its Kickstarter campaign this weekend, making it the most well-funded video game in Kickstarter's history. The Kickstarter, which ended last night, generated a total of $4,188,927 from 74,405 backers. That is 455 percent more than the $900,000 that the developer asked for at the start.
Torment: Tides of Numenera barely passed Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity, which raked in $3.99 million. The project is also the second-most funded gaming product on the site overall, behind the Android-powered Ouya console, which managed to raise a whopping $8.6 million.
"There is no way this game would have ever been funded without this new method of connection and without the passion of our backers who didn't just donate but worked as a team to spread the word. You guys rock! The passion of the RPG gamer is like none other," inXile founder Brian Fargo wrote on the Kickstarter blog.
The game was also recently delayed for release until 2015. This was mainly due to the myriad of features that stretch goals ultimately added into the to-do list.
