The game raised about $8.8 million thanks to the support of 219,382 backers. It surpassed ‘Bring Reading Rainbow Back for Every Child, Everywhere!’ last month and eventually garnered over twice as many backers.
Exploding Kittens is a “highly strategic kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette. Players take turns drawing cards until someone draws an exploding kitten and loses the game.”
“We’ve never seen anything like you guys, and neither has the planet,” wrote Kickstarter. “You have proven beyond any doubt that you are unstoppable.”
Exploding Kittens was developed by Xbox’s Elan Lee and Shane Small, as well as The Oatmeal‘s Matthew Inman.
