Updated June 2022:

Here's the top 10, most funded homebrew game projects. This only includes funds from Kickstarter (some games had massive indiegogo or post launch sales as well).

NOTES:

  • Some Kickstarters include multiple platformers (eg. NES + SNES etc) so it's not entirely apples to apples comparisons.
  • I am only including new releases, not re-issues of old games, however I am including original ports of games that previously appears on other platforms.

#10 Trophy ($40,096)

#9 Anguna: Scourge of the Goblin King ($40,435)

#8 Project Blue ($42,592)

#7 Montezuma's Revenge ($45,060)

#6 Roniu's Tale ($49,243)

#5: Dungeons & Doomknights ($54,715)

#4 Skeler Boy ($55,875) *

#3: Jim Power ($63,805) *

#2: Super Russian Roulette ($84,263)

#1: Micro Mages ($177,115)

* Includes multiple platforms in final sales numbers.

Hey, this is a cool list!  I assume this is all-time or how far did you go back?  Also, I don't think Jim Power should count because it's not strictly a NES homebrew Kickstarter...

If you took that one off the list I suspect #5 might be Trophy, which raised $40,096.

May 2021 list for future reference (I'm about to update list at the top).

I was browsing Kickstarter today, just looking at numbers different projects pulled in, etc. Here's the top 5 funded homebrew game projects. I was kind of surprised at what was and wasn't in the list!

(Original games only)

#5: Project Blue ($42,592)

#4: Dungeons & Doomknights ($54,715)

#3: Jim Power ($63,805)*

#2: Super Russian Roulette ($84,263)

#1: Micro Mages ($177,115)

* I debated putting Jim Power in here since it's multiple platforms, and if I understand correctly is a port of an existing game.
