The supernatural mystery action-RPG Witchmarsh, set in 1920s Massachusetts, has reached its Kickstarter goal with 17 days to spare. That means it's time to go stretch goal huntin' with the first at £70k.
It took 12 days for the campaign to hit 100% and indie Inglenook has opened up Paypal backing. Exploration won the community poll for what they'll focus on with the next content update.
Witchmarsh is awhere we control an investigation team solving supernatural mysteries in 1920s rural America. We need to find missing townsfolk.
"In just twelve days you've turned our dream into a reality. Thank you, from all the team. The response we've received is humbling," wrote the studio. "Very shortly we'll be opening up PayPal backing."
