The past few weeks have been an exciting time for Kickstarter, as two major developers have taken to crowdfunding to create spiritual successors to their former franchises. Koji Igarashi is reviving the Castlevania formula with Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, and Playtonic Games (composed of ex-members of Rare) are reviving the glory days of 3D platformers like Banjo-Kazooie with Yooka-Laylee. Both games quickly smashed their targets and have each raised over $2.5 million, but they're not just helping themselves. They're helping other indie developers as well. Hit the jump for more!
