Cross-posted to our Kickstarter page on May 8, 2014:
Just a few hours ago, you rose to the challenge and brought Storium’s campaign all the way to the $250,000 funding mark — and beyond! That means we unlocked our final stretch goal: the superheroic world of CHAMPIONS from Cryptic Studios and Hero Games!
The final tallyTogether we raised an astonishing $251,362, representing 1005% of our initial goal. That’s right, we raised 10x what we planned. A stunning 6,676 of you contributed to the campaign. That number is, to us, just as stunning as the dollar figure. It tells us that a lot of people care about Storium and want to see it succeed. It’s hard to put into words just how powerful and meaningful that is for our team. Thank you.
