Harmonix has comeback from a likely Kickstarter failure to reach its funding goal for Amplitude with less than 24 hours remaining.

The developer was asking for $775,000, which it recently revealed was “less than half of the project budget for the game,” with the rest being funded by Harmonix itself.

The Kickstarter was sitting at under $400,000 raised on Monday, which is when Harmonix announced that music from artists Freezepop and Anamanaguchi, among others would be part of the game’s original soundtrack. Insomniac studio founder Ted Price also recently donated $7,500 to the project which gave the Kickstarter some good press coverage and helped jolt the funding drive. It reached its final goal with around 21 hours remaining.

Currently the Kickstarter is sitting at $809,912 with 11 hours to go. The lowest amount you can currently donate, and still get the game, is £20, which will get you a Cross-buy code for the game on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Amplitude is expected to launch March 2015 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
