Mobile Games Briefing:
Crowdfunding

Price: £99.00

2012 was the year crowdfunding stopped looking like a gimmick, and started looking like a viable way for selected independent outfits to fund new creative projects.

This isn’t your granddad’s capital market, however. What does it mean when thousands of people chip in a token amount to fund a new game’s development? What gets them excited, how do you tap into that, and what do they want in return?

Answering these questions – and capitalizing on the strengths and understanding the weaknesses of the crowdfunding paradigm – is vital for any company thinking of tapping into the enthusiasm of the crowd in 2013.
