    Hi everyone!

    I maintain a monthly report on successfully funded video games on Kickstarter using web scraped data, and wanted to start sharing with the community here in case anyone finds the market insights helpful! Below is the link to where the files (pdf) can be found, which I update monthly beginning September 2019. The latest report I've just completed this morning is for the period ended October 31, 2019, and below are some highlights for the period. I want to maintain this for the benefit of the indie community, so if you have any suggestions, questions, or feedback please don't hesitate to shoot them my way!
