In case anyone has not seen this, Obsidian launches the Project Eternity on Kickstarter.

They hit the $1.1mil goal in about a day and a half.

What really amazes me is how successful a lot of the miniatures and board games are. Here is a little run down on the successful projects in the gaming category.

1. Ouya console - $8.6mil
2. Reaper Bones Miniatures - $3.4mil
3-6. Double Fine, Wasteland2, Planetary Annihilation, and Shadowrun Returns are video games in the $1.8-$3.3mil range.
7-10. Sedition Wars, Ogre, Relic Knights, and Zombicide are all board or miniature games and have each raised just short of a million a piece.

One item that isn't in the gaming category although it could be is the Oculus Rift(VR headset for gaming) which raised $2.4 mil.
