A new card game created by two Xbox designers has set the world of crowdfunding alight.

Exploding Kittens is co-created by former Xbox chief design officer Elan Lee, former Xbox Entertainment principle art director Shane Small and The Oatmeal creator Matt Inman.

Having sought just $10k in funding the game currently stands at an incredible $3.26m. It was 100 per cent funded within 20 minutes of going live earlier this week and 1000 per cent funded in under an hour.

After two days it stood as the 22nd most funded Kickstarter ever, the 11th best funded game and the highest funded card game. That’s more funding than the Oculus Rift received.
