CoolMiniOrNot’s Rising Sun game has raised over $4m on Kickstarter, becoming the firm’s most successful crowdfunding campaign to date.
Rising Sun passed the $2.4m mark after just two weeks, and has now finished its run having raised $4,228,060 from 31,262 backers. The miniatures and board game firm is well versed in this space, with Rising Sun being its 26th Kickstarter project.
The game, set in feudal Japan, sees players strive to ensure their clan leads the land. Gamers must use politics to further their cause, negotiate to seek the most profitable alliances, worship the Kami to gain their favour, recruit monsters out of legend to bolster forces, and utilise resources to be victorious in battle.
“The Kickstarter campaign is over, and what a resounding success it was,” read a statement from the CMON team.
“This turned out to be the most successful campaign CMON has ever run, with a total number of backers that is truly staggering. We can’t thank all of you enough for your massive support of Rising Sun. We hope your faith in this project will be rewarded by an exciting game you will enjoy for years to come.”
