Kickstarter has added one more game to its list of runaway success stories, as the upcoming Homestuck adventure game has just become the third highest funded game in the platform's history (behind Double Fine Adventure and Wasteland 2).

The game, which is based on an interactive webcomic of the same name, concluded its Kickstarter campaign with more than $2.4 million earned, putting the game well above its original $700,000 goal. In addition, it surpassed the recently funded Planetary Annihilation, which ended its campaign last month with $2.2 million earned.

Homestuck is also the fifth game on Kickstarter to pull in a full seven figures, and it certainly won't be the last, as one more title is also about to achieve that notable landmark. Obsidian Entertainment's Project Eternity has 12 days left in its campaign, and already the game has earned more than $2.3 million in pledges.
