Kickstarter trending and statistics

burfoburfo Blue Mounds, WIPosts: 46Member

If you're not familiar with Kicktraq, it's a site that tracks statistics for Kickstarter projects.  Here's the tracking info on the CU project.  Don't get too hung up on the trending metric (especially so early in the project), but the data is interesting nevertheless.

    I'd expect the vast majority of the larger donors will donate in the next few days if not today, so I'll be watching closely to see whether it can cross $1mil or even $1.5mil by the end of the week. If it's still under $1mil by week's end, it could be in trouble.

    Agree, would feel much more confident to see it hit 1mil+ today or tomorrow.

    I'm curious, do KS projects usually benefit more from a few large backers or many small ones? I assume it's a burst of big bites in the beginning, then a bunch of small bites over the next month, followed by a bust during the last few days or people finally deciding to take the dive.

    Will be fun to watch that trending line. 8.5 million after first 90 minutes.

    Well, I can say that some of the projects I have looked at get around 50% of their total funding in the first two or three days. This means that we should hope Camelot Unchained raises at least $1M by the end of this week.

    I'd wager many small ones, m ainly because some people do "back out" o fthe projects, and I have seen some projects lose 5-10k backers and it can hurt them quit ea bit (especially with smaller goals, like <200k).

    My guess they hit 1M within 24 hous......lots of people interested actually have jobs now and need to get home.....

    Well, 5 hours in and here are some quick stats:

    Backers: 2,508

    Pledges: $435,408

    Mean Pledge: $173.61

    Backers / Hour: 501.6

    Pledges / Hour: $87,081.60

    I did not record the exact numbers, but the mean pledge has been declining over time, which is to be expected as the initial rush is likely to see some of the biggest pledges. A mere one or two hours ago it was at ~$180. I suspect over time it will drop to ~$150.

    We are now 6 hours in!

    Backers: 2,691

    Pledges: $467,030

    Mean Pledge: $173.55

    Backers / Hour: 448.5

    Pledges / Hour: $77,838.33

    As you can see, the mean pledge, the backers per hour, and the pledges per hour are trending downward, but this is to be expected. In the past hour there were 183 more backers and $31,622 in funds added.

    I can see it dropping to the avg kickstarter fund of about $60-80.

    right now its mostly the really keen supporters of the game throwing their wallets at it, but soon the game will generate alittle more hype and then alot of the more casual interest players will throw in their $15-$50.

    Apparently, there's no beating Burfo when it comes to spreadsheets and charts.  I know I won't bother :P

    Not really true, let us look at other games that hit around $2 million dollars.

    Planetary Annihilation - A Next Generation RTS - $2.2 million

    • $300k in the first 48 hours

    Homestuck Adventure Game - $2.2 million

    • $750k in first 48 hours

    Wasteland 2 - $2.9 million

    • $865k in first 48 hours
    Anything can happen but so far it looks like it is in great shape.

     

     
  • skyexileskyexile MelbournePosts: 692Member

    shouldn't be a problem hitting 700k in 24 hours by the looks of it.

    Interesting to see how it progresses, it would be cool if we could monitor any "responses" on new updates.

     

  • CaldrinCaldrin CwmbranPosts: 4,533Member Uncommon

    I expect to see it slow right down after the first few days..

    I think they make the 2 million mark but they wont go over by loads..

    Yeah, as Meddyck mentioned somewhere on here, it should pick up some before KS ends also.  After more info gets put out by CSE and more word of mouth from friends.

    Only people who really are pledging are the people who are Rabid fans of  DaOC -After that it will level off.

     

    Just because they get money, doesn't mean the game will be published. It is a simple demo not a full blown game and things change as more is learned.

     

    I am just a wait and see.

    We've seen games get a ton of funding at the very end of the time limit too, as people rush in to be a part of it.  I'm talking in the last few days of funding.  

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    Large backers always make the biggest difference in other contribution based projects. Like open source stuff, a small fraction of contributors make up 70% of the contribution.
