KD 1.5 raised 2.5 million in a few hours. Dark souls broke a Kickstarter record at 3.7 million. What are the chances KD breaks the 3.7 million kickstarter record?
I think the more accurate question is "when will it beat the dark souls record?"
Sure, KDM 1.5 has raised (as I type this) $2.8 million, but back when Dark Souls closed, it raised 3.7 million pounds, which at the time, worked out to be about 5.6 million dollars. If you add on the many late pledges its even more.
I don't think KD 1.5 will have any trouble beating that. Even if it does suffer the same post launch slump that a lot of kickstarters do.
My money is on it beating that in... less than a week.
