$2.65m Binding of Isaac card game Kickstarter smashes target by over 5,000%

Almost 40,000 backers successfully funded tabletop spin-off of popular indie roguelike

Edmund McMillen's card game spin-off for his indie hit The Binding of Isaac has completed its Kickstarter campaign, raising well over $2 million.

The crowdfunding live finished last night, achieving a total $2,650,780 from 38,334 backers. The project's target was originally just $50,000 - a milestone it met within just 75 minutes - meaning its Kickstarter objective was exceeded by 5,201 per cent.

In addition to hosting a livestream in the run-up to midnight and the close of the campaign, McMillen celebrated via Twitter and thanked various key supporters.

He also thanked the various artists who have helped in "getting 95% of all the card art done in these 30 says" and his wife Danielle for her support, as well "[coming] up with all my funniest bits and basically the majority of KS ideas."

"A huge thanks to all you guys out there who backed and/or participated in this," he finished. "I haven't felt this good about something in ages."

McMillen is aiming to deliver The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls to backers by November 2018, seven years since the multi-million selling indie game first launched.
