Three items to note for you on Kickstarter:
Have you seen The Gamers? There are two movies, and the creators have taken to Kickstarter to fund the third. I hadn’t realized they also had a series, so I must check out JourneyQuest. I pledged.
If you liked Defense Grid, would you like to support Defense Grid 2? Defense Grid: the Awakening is an enjoyable tower defense game. The million-dollar, “fund the whole sequel” stretch goal seems out of reach, but they are most of the way to the first goal. I pledged.
And in our MMO world, Shadowrun Online is seeking funding. I’m not sure what it means that the MMO is going for $500,000 and the smaller tower defense game is going for $1,000,000. Shadowrun seems to be planning to use every revenue model at once: having separate F2P and buy-the-box servers, plus “premium” subscriptions on the F2P server and selling quarterly expansions on the campaign server. The monetization plan, at least, is thorough. I’m not a backer, but I thought y’all might be interested in the project.
