Kickstarter kicked off on April 28, 2009 with just three employees - Perry Chen, Yancey Strickler and Charles Adler. And they're the early stars of a video celebrating the fifth anniversary of the launch.

The crowdfunding service has gone on to incredible success, bringing fans in contact with their favourite projects like never before. And its been behind some great and controversial projects - like the DoubleFine Adventure which broke every standing record and still managed to only deliver half a game.

But this is all about celebrating Kickstarter, which I still maintain is a great service - even if you people aren't supporting Outcast HD like you should be.

Here's a cute video telling the whole story of Kickstarter.
