Crowdfunding: Best Practices for Indie Game Devs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Because crowdfunding is so new and so different, the best way to learn how to do it is to learn from first-hand experience. You'll hear discussions about preparation, launch, and reaching the goal - and also what it's like to recover after the funding falls short. You'll find out that crowdfunding isn't all about the money - arguably, the more important benefit is building a rich community invested in your future success. If you've got a great vision for a game, but you're not sure how you'd find the resources or the fan base to make it a reality, you're in store for a fascinating conversation. This panel is organized by Playcrafting.
