Awesomenauts: Starstorm’s Crowd-Funding Campaign Raises More Than $400K


Ronimo’s Kickstarter campaign for an expansion for their game Awesomenauts has closed with a pledge value of over $345,835. Fans could pledge to help the development of the expansion called Awesomenauts: Starstorm on both the Kickstarter site and on Ronimo’s own crowdfunding page.

The combined pledged value of both at the time of closing was $407,765. Ronimo’s own page will remain open for a short while longer, although all physical rewards have been removed.

Reaching 400k means several stretch goals have been met after funding the base 125k requirement within the first week. The new features that will be built are as follows:

– 4 new Awesomenauts and a map will be added to the game, tied together by the new Starstorm narrative.
– Full spectator mode and replay system. Players will be able to spectate any public matches that are currently going on, as well as watch replays later.
– Custom games setup, allowing private matches to be fully customisable.
– 2 awesome new songs will be created and added to the soundtrack.

And since Ronimo’s own crowdfunding page is still open the next stretch goal might also be met. At 415k a 5th character and 3rd song will also be built.
