The L.A. Game Space Kickstarter campaign reached its funding goal today, raising $257,165 from 7,873 backers (at the time of writing) with three days to go.
The campaign launched in November to seek funding to create a physical space where video games can be celebrated through workshops, a gallery, game labs and a seminar space. The space is intended for everyone with an interest in games and the project directors are aiming to provide a supportive environment for big and small game companies, researchers, artists, musicians, animators, coders and fans to come together to make and talk about games.
Those who back the project on Kickstarter with $15 or more will receive 30 original games made by the developers of Hotline Miami, Adventure Time, QWOP, The Unfinished Swan, Nidhogg and more, and those who pledge a minimum of $5 will receive a new game developed by Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi and Adam Saltsman.
There are three days left to back the project.
