The team has reached $292,456+ (a number rising each second) already, making it safe to assume that they will hit their goal and more with 34 days to go.
For those who haven't played the original game, should probably give it a look, now on PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One. Praised by many, earning a Metacritic score of 4.5/5.
