Another Video to Tabletop Success Story

A campaign for a board game based on the popular sci-fi video game Stellaris has hit over $2 million on Kickstarter. Stellaris Infinite Legacy aims to bring the 4X strategy title to the tabletop and has managed to accrue over 12,000 backers since the campaign went live back on March 11th. 

Stellaris Infinite Legacy Is Insanely Popular With Fans

The original game, Stellaris, is a 4X strategy game that tasks players with managing a grand empire across space, where they must decide between being a utopian, Star Trek-esque society or something more akin to North Korea but in space. Stellaris Infinite Legacy promises to perfectly translate the video game into tabletop form, and that promise has proven to be more than enticing to fans of the game. 

In barely more than half a week, Stellaris Infinite Legacy has breached over $2 million on its Kickstarter campaign with more than 12,000 backers, and the numbers don't show any sign of slowing down. All but one of the game's stretch goals have been reached, leaving just a single $2,200,000 goal for a Space Amoeba miniature waiting to be cleared. With things going the way, it'll be done before tomorrow arrives. 

Video Games As Tabletop Games

Stellaris Infinite Legacy is just the latest success story of a video game being turned into a tabletop game. Earlier this month, everyone was shocked when Stardew Valley suddenly arrived as a board game, and over the past few years projects like Dark Souls: The Board Game and Wolfenstein: The Board Game has shown that the video game industry's impact on tabletop gaming will be a lasting one. 

 
 

Without a doubt, the reason Infinite Legacy has proven to be so popular is due to how many people played and enjoyed the video game. If that means that the tabletop community grows even bigger, then that can't be a bad thing.
