What's the highest percentage you've ever seen a game funded for on Kickstarter?

Right now I'm watching Fields of Green and I was just thinking how nice it would be if the game could get funded 500% (five days to go)... and it made me wonder what the highest percentage has ever been.

Since it was obviously LOTS of us- I thought someone might remember.

Percentage wise there are higher ones then that one. Near and Far was over 2000%.

$$ wise Exploding kittens, Black Plague and Dark Souls is up there for highest

Percentage is somewhat arbitrary, since some campaigns start with unrealistically low funding goals when they are confident they'll get enough money. Total backers and money is much more indicative of success.

I know, but it happens to be what I'm curious about.

Exploding Kittens probably wins for %. It was 87,825% funded with it's starting goal of $10,000. I'd even consider the starting goal realistic since it's just a deck of cards.

You're right, Exploding Kittens probably wins!

Forgot about that one. With a starting goal of $10 it was 554,910% funded.

Conceivably something with a starting goal of $1 would only need to raise $5,550 to beat that, so there could be many even higher.

Yup... like the aforementioned Worst Game Ever at 1,580,400%.
