Ronimo Games' Kickstarter project to create the Awesomenauts expansion Starstorm surpassed its crowdfunding goal about a week into the campaign.
As of this writing, the campaign has $130,031 in pledges from 2,621 backers. The funding goal was set at $125,000 when the project launched in mid-August.
"Hell yeah!" co-founder Olivier Thijssen wrote on the Kickstarter blog. "We've reached the primary goal of $125,000 within seven days! This means we will start working on Ted mcPain, Sentry & Skree, Global chat, twin-stick support, new music and spectator mode. We invite you to keep sharing your thoughts and feedback with us as we start to develop Starstorm!"
The developer will launch PayPal funding for the expansion, with details to follow on Ronimo Games' various social network channels, Thijssen wrote.
