Mad money: Mina the Hollower obliterates Kickstarter goal in record time

Mina the Hollower Kickstarter

Yesterday, Yacht Club’s newest title, Mina the Hollower, was revealed during its presentation. It very much looks like an homage to the GBC Zelda games, which means I need to play it ASAP. The publisher put up a Kickstarter for the project so fans could help finance its development and get it made. Well, it’s been less than a day, and Mina the Hollower has already annihilated its Kickstarter goal. I guess having Shovel Knight as a success story paid off!

My body is ready to experience Mina the Hollower in all of its glory

If you take a look at Mina‘s Kickstarter page, you can see it has currently raised $394,229 of its $311,503 goal, with 6,860 backers. Those numbers keep going up as I write this, which is insane. Especially considering Yacht Club gave fans 30 days to fully fund the title. With 29 days to go, I think we can safely say the company’s latest game is going to become a reality.

No word yet on stretch goals for additional in-game content, but users can pledge between $5 and $500 to get a variety of goodies. These include a digital wallpaper, a physical copy of the game, and having your name appear in a secret area. There were also crazy incentives between $750 and $3,000 that let you be a director for a day, but these rewards are no longer available. I guess some folks had a lot of money on hand last night.

Enthusiasts, what are your thoughts on Mina the Hollower hitting its Kickstarter goal in less than 24 hours? Let us know below!
