The Kickstarter tag refers to games that have been funded or developed through the crowdfunding platform called Kickstarter. Kickstarter is a platform where creators can pitch their project ideas and seek financial support from potential backers. This allows developers to secure funding directly from the community and fans who are interested in their game concept.

When a game is tagged as "Kickstarter" on Steam, it means that the game's development was made possible through a successful Kickstarter campaign. These games often showcase unique or innovative ideas that may not have received traditional publisher backing but still garnered enough interest from supporters to bring the project to life.

The advantages of Kickstarter-funded games are:

  • Community Involvement By funding a game on Kickstarter, backers become part of the project's community. They can provide feedback, suggestions, and engage in discussions with the developers during development, fostering a sense of involvement and collaboration.
  • Creative Freedom By bypassing traditional publishers, developers can maintain high levels of creative control over their projects. This allows them to explore unconventional ideas or take risks that might not align with commercial market trends.
  • Early Access Opportunities Many Kickstarter campaigns offer early access versions of the game as rewards for backers. This means those who supported the project get early access before its official release, giving them an opportunity to provide feedback and shape its development.

Some notable examples of games funded through Kickstarter include:

  • Bloodstained: Ritual of The Night A spiritual successor to Castlevania developed by Koji Igarashi after meeting its initial funding goal within hours seucred millions more than initially expected
  • Shovel Knight A pixel art platformer developed by Yacht Club Games, which gained immense popularity and critical acclaim after exceeding its funding goal
  • Divinity: Original Sin II A highly acclaimed RPG developed by Larian Studios that raised over $2 million on Kickstarter before becoming one of the most successful crowdfunded games of all time.

The "Kickstarter" tag allows players to identify and support games that have been independently funded and brought to life with the support of the gaming community.
