This Kickstarter campaign, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lmstudio/dungeonology-the-expedition, was funded in 11 minutes. Considering its campaign goal was €53,000 (roughly $59,844 USD give or take), getting funded in 11 minutes is impressive. This is a slightly different game than one might expect. You will see why below. Here’s the Kicktraq for the campaign: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/lmstudio/dungeonology-the-expedition/.

From the Kickstarter link:
Welcome to the University of Rocca Civetta, the first of its kind, which aims to study the natural habitat of several cultures in Italy.
Unfortunately, some of the professors occasionally run into atypical societies, risking their neck.
This is a university where even the best find it tough!
In Dungeonology the heroes will explore new places and their inhabitants with the aim of discussing their thesis and becoming the new professor in their own field of expertise.
It is an atypical dungeon crawler where the goal is not to free the area from hordes of furious and terrifying monsters, collecting huge stashes of treasure or magical weapons; to the contrary, our heroes’ job will be to study habits, take notes and stay undercover.
The Scholar who gathers the most or best quality information can discuss their thesis, getting themselves promoted to the role of professor.
