"Sometimes dreams come true," Ware said in an e-mail.
As of Monday night, his project, called "Throw Trucks With Your Mind," had raised $41,062 from 495 backers. Ware has said he plans to use the money to hire a handful of people to complete the game within the next year.
The game is played by wearing a NeuroSky headset that reads brain waves. Players must make themselves more calm and focused to move objects in the game.
Ware is promising the game within a year, but says he's optimistic a full version can be completed several months before then.
