Bloodstained Kickstarter nearly triples its goal in one day

Koji Igarashi’s return to Metroidvania games has proven rather popular, with the Kickstarter nearly hitting $1,500,000 in one day.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night opened up on Kickstarter yesterday, seeking $500,000. At the time of writing it’s sitting on $1,427,274, which – if I can do some basic multiplication correctly – is nearly triple what was initially asked for.

Bloodstained‘s request for $500,000 wasn’t just to fund the game; it was to prove to an unnamed partner that there was a genuine desire for this game, at which point said partner would kick in more funding. With the game having already broken every stretch goal revealed (including two new ones – cheat codes, and local co-op) I’d say it’s probably managed that quite admirably.
