Kickstarter has added the possibility for late pledges:

First Look: Late Pledges on Kickstarter

Now, backers have a way to support great projects, post-campaign right here on Kickstarter.

Every project that has launched on Kickstarter since 2009 is a testament to what's possible when creators can tap into community support to bring their ideas to life.

Today, we're excited to share a glimpse into the future of supporting creative projects on Kickstarter with a new feature we're introducing: Late Pledges.

Say Hello to Late Pledges
The end of a campaign shouldn't mean the end of support. Whether you've just stumbled upon a project where the funding period has already ended or you're a creator looking to keep the momentum going, we believe the spirit of support and discovery should continue even after the campaign clock runs out.

That's why, starting today, we're introducing Late Pledges to a select group of creators. The Late Pledges feature allows creators who successfully meet their funding goal to continue collecting pledges after their campaign officially ends. It's our way of keeping the door open for more support, more backers, and more success for the incredible projects that make Kickstarter what it is.

While a handful of creators are testing it out, we'll get their feedback, explore the feature's possibilities, refine its functionality, and ensure it's everything our community needs it to be before we roll it out to all creators worldwide.
Thanks Couchpotato!

Makes sense they were missing out on all the money that Patreon and it's users make. Now expect to see games making 10K or more a month and never finished.

Hey I've seen a few adult game developets making $30,000 a month for three or more years on Patreon. They release small content updates while milking the pledges.

I'm surprised this wasn't implemented a long time ago tbh.
Same here.
I just cannot keep track of everything, and i forgot a lot of projects in the course of time - which includes a few TDE pen & paper projects, too.
