If you’re one of the lucky few who got a head start in the crowdfunding boom by getting your first AR game to the public, there’s a way you can still reap rewards for backing it up.
Arbitration MarketWarframe, the game that launched last month with over 30,000 backers, has received a total of $7,764.21 in payments from the crowdfunding platform.
While that’s not a ton of money to spend, it’s the largest amount the game has ever collected.
That said, it still amounts to only 5% of the total funds the game’s raising so far.
For comparison, the top five crowdfunding campaigns on Kickstarter in September had collectively raised over $3.5 million.
Even with a small number of backers, that amount represents a huge increase in the total amount raised by the campaign.
This, of course, is not an exact science, but it’s a pretty solid indication that the game is on track to hit its funding goal in the next few days.
To make matters worse, ArbCom is now considering whether to levy a hefty fine against the publisher.
The fine, which would be up to $2 million in the US, could be a huge blow to the game.
The game was developed by a small studio called Redwood Games, and was funded on Indiegogo with a $5,000 pledge.
The campaign raised a total $7.5,800.
This is not exactly a huge amount of money, but the fact that Redwood got the project to the crowdfunding site is a big deal, especially considering the lack of funding the project received.
ArbCom has yet to comment on whether it will levy the fine.
