2019 was the best year ever for Kickstarter and nobody is mentioning it. More money was raised than in 2015 (previous record). The number of submitted projects is drastically down, but success ratio at its highest since 2011. Low quality projects are massively down.

To give some extra context, Kickstarter doesn't communicate on money raised (by successful projects), but on money pledged (overall). On the "money pledged" metric, 2019 wasn't a record year.

And yes, a lot of the money is thanks to games. but not just. Three categories (out of 15) make most of the money on the platform. (comparison between 2019 and 2015)

Now compare these stats to tabletop games.

Success ratio is not what I’d pick as the metric for β€˜best’. I suspect high success ratio implies lots of safe bets, campaigns launched when the work is already half done, and underbudgeted projects.

Yep. Maturity of the space. Also, you might see KS less often in the news, that removes all the lazy/low effort speculative campaigns?

What whappen in 2015? 16k projects raising zero money is really strange

The peak of the "potato salad" effect.
