Launching on February 3rd, 2020, Hunters Entertainment debuted their Kickstarter campaign to fund Altered Carbon: The Role Playing Game with an initial funding goal of $20,000. Earning $100K from over 1,000 backers within the first 24 hours, the KS campaign became an instant success and continued to soar throughout its 30-day campaign. On March 3, 2020, Hunters wrapped the wildly successful campaign, ultimately breaking into the Top 20 most-funded RPG campaigns in Kickstarter history with $372,547 USD from 3,940 backers worldwide.
The generous support of our Kickstarter backers helped to make many exciting and exclusive products a reality, including a standard and collector’s edition of the RPG Core Rulebook, multiple new supplements and adventures, numerous premium game miniatures and accessories, and a four-episode Liveplay series co-produced and distributed by Penny Arcade.
The successful conclusion of the campaign coincided with the equally successful debut of Season 2 of Altered Carbon on Netflix, which quickly became one of the Top-10 most watched series on the platform.
Everyone at Genuine, Hunters, Renegade Game Studios, and Skydance TV are thrilled, honored, and humbled by the unanimously positive response from Altered Carbon fans, Kickstarter, and the tabletop gaming community. We cannot wait to share this game with the world, and we look forward to telling more inspired and innovative tales within this sci-fi universe for years to come.
