Critical Role's Crowdfunding Campaign for Animated D&D Special Raises $2 Million in Under Four Hours


A project from Critical Role billed as “‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ meets Dungeons & Dragons” has smashed Kickstarter crowdfunding records for a campaign of its size — raising more than $2 million in less than four hours.


The campaign , which launched Monday (March 4) at 10 a.m. PT, reached $1 million in less than an hour, exceeding its baseline $750,000 goal.


Critical Role partnered with Titmouse, the studio behind such shows as Netflix’s “Big Mouth,” Adult Swim’s “Venture Bros.” and “Metalocalypse,” and “Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures,” to create the animation.


Jennifer Muro (“Justice League Action,” “Star Wars Forces of Destiny”) has signed on to write the project.


Critical Role is led by veteran Dungeon Master Matthew Mercer, whose voice acting credits include “Attack on Titan,” “Fate/Zero,” the “Resident Evil” series, “Titanfall 2,” “Overwatch,” and “Fallout 4.”


In “The Legend of Vox Machina,” the band of seven loners, while drunk, accidentally save the town’s ruler and are given their first “grown-up” mission, which forces them to live together and pits them against dangerous and legendary beasts — eventually transforming them into a band of adventurers called Vox Machina.
