After weeks of struggling to raise the needed $150,000, innovative indie compilation SPORTSFRIENDS has crept over its Kickstarter funding target with hours to spare. That means the collection of quirky competitive local multiplayer games will be making their way to PC (*mumble* and PS3) for public consumption.

And now for a Kickstarter that isn't about space, or bringing back the Old Ways - in fact, this is probably one of the most innovative projects on the site. Sportsfriends is a collection of clever party games, four of them to be exact, including Johann Sebastian Joust, which doesn't even rely on a visual display. The four games' four developers are asking for a modest - well, by space sim standards - $150,000, around a quarter of which they've already achieved.
