Legend of Iya Raises $75,000 On Kickstarter
August 14, 2013
Legend of Iya (pronounced Ee-yah) has raised over $75,000 on the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Made entirely in GameMaker 8.1, the project has been in development for a decade according to Andrew Bado, the sole developer. Legend of Iya is a 2D story-driven platformer game centered around a young protagonist who unknowingly finds herself lost in a fantasy world. The game is set for release on Windows (with Mac, Ouya, and Linux ports planned) around the end of 2014.
Kickstarter has proven to be a valuable fund-raising platform for GameMaker developers. Legend of Iya joins the growing ranks of GameMaker projects that have been successfully funded on Kickstarter.

You forgot Undertale, which raised over $50k. It also happens to be leaps and bounds better than everything else on your list. 😉
No problem. It’s an amazing little game, so I’m pulling for it. It’s one of the few games, indie or otherwise, that’s really got me excited in a long while. The developers really love what they’re making, and it shows. =)
That logo looks like the one from Asia music group. Well, it’s identical.
…but the game is really beautiful.
Dig that crazy Roger Dean title screen, man. Is Psygnosis publishing this?
Superb art work. I bet his arse is twitching now though. $75,000 is a lot of money and lot of expectation. Hope it all goes well for him.
The dropoff for “3rd place” in kickstarter success is a loo loo. There needs to be moar successes than that.
Those games were also only asking for such a small amount of money. There’s a GameMaker project on IndieGoGo right now (about to finish) that’s raised over $20,000: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gods-will-be-watching
