Double Fine's Kickstarter Funding Nearly Matches Grim Fandango's Budget

With about two days to go on its jaw-dropping Kickstarter campaign, Double Fine's next adventure game has acquired $2.7 million in grassroots backing from fans like you. Double Fine's Tim Schafer provides a little perspective on the size of the kitty.

"Um, people... three million dollars... that was the budget of Grim Fandango!" Schafer tweeted a couple of hours ago.

"Holy cow, the next 52 hours are going to be exciting. We're looking into doing a livestream countdown," he added shortly after.

There are 50 hours left to get in on the project. The game sought $400,000 originally and has raised almost 700 percent of its goal.
