TUCSON, Arizona – July 18, 2013 – After only eight days, Casual Game Insider magazine has exceeded its $15,000 funding goal on Kickstarter and is now reaching for higher stretch goals. If achieved, the additional funding at the $30,000 and $50,000 levels will allow the publisher to include more content, increase distribution of free printed copies to up to 3,000 game stores, and provide a rich mobile experience on iOS, Android, and Kindle devices.

“We are very pleased with the tremendous response we have received early on in the campaign,” said Chris James, editor-in-chief and program director. “Now that our magazine production is funded for a second year, we hope to achieve our higher funding goals so we can add even more value to our content and distribution network.”
