Wondering why Alex is so quiet these last few days? That is because he and the gang are currently in New York at NYU-Poly speaking on a panel about the Kickstarter process.
Don't worry, they will be back soon!Using A New Funding Model for Game Development
Need funding for a game project? Seeking funding from the masses through Kickstarter is one way to go. Recently, a well-known game developer raised over 3 million dollars for a project using the website. Our panel discussion includes three recently funded developers working at small and larger scale, as well as Cindy Au, Kickstarter's Community Director, and Wade Tinney, IGDA-NYC Chapter Coordinator and CEO of Large Animal Games. Panelists will discuss the pros and cons and process of raising funding through Kickstarter for their projects, and how it compares with using the traditional publisher model.
