Kickstarter revealed on Twitter today that the project has set new records for both most funds raised in 24 hours and highest number of supporters. It reached these records after being up on the site for only 15 hours.
The project, which launched yesterday, will fund a new retro-styled point-and-click adventure game by Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island creators Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert.
Double Fine achieved its goal of $400,000 (£252,942) within eight hours, and continues to gain support. It currently has raised $818,037 (£516,823) with over 20,000 backers and 33 days remaining to receive donations.
Schafer announced that the extra money will be used to translate the game into other languages and consider other platforms.
"All the money goes into making the game and documentary better," he said.
People who fund $15 (£9) will receive a copy of the game through Steam upon release, as well as access to the beta and a video documentary produced by 2 Player Productions.
Other funding options include your name in the credits, an exclusive poster, and a portrait of you by Double Fine's art team.
Earlier this week, Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson offered to help Double Fine fund Psychonauts 2. The offer followed comments made by Schafer to Digital Spy that he would "love" to make the game but lacked the funds to create it.
