Stretch goals provided game elements above the needed $1 million to make the game. These acted as a catalyst to attack more Kickstarter backers to pledge. Yours truly pledged at the Knight level.

What is not clear is if any of these stretch goals will continue to be added now that we are done with the Kickstarter campaign.

At the end of the Kickstarter campaign Portalarium reached $2.03 million dollars!
