List of Successfully Funded GameMaker Kickstarter Projects

Independent game developers seeking to raise funds for their projects have been turning to the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter as a means of doing so. A number of GameMaker projects have appeared on Kickstarter, and while not all have been successful, several have.

We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of GameMaker projects that have been funded on the platform.

  1. Hi, Thanks for putting Vitality (My Game) on the list! Really appreciate it, though do you mind updating the cover picture to one of our more up-to-date screenshots:
    (simply because we have had a huge graphical overhaul since then!)

    It is really great to see how GM is entering the spotlight, especially at the top end! I only just watched a Totalbiscuit video earlier, regarding Hero Siege, and the game he compared it to in depth was Risk of rain, another GM game! It’s really inspiring seeing GM take the spotlight and have so many Indie games popping into the top end!

    Good luck to everyone, and thankyou!
