I suppose the title says it all, really. Crowdfunding, whether for games, hardware, or other creative endeavours, feels like it’s dramatically advanced over the last decade. Contributing to a project and supporting the creators you’re interested in seeing more from feels like it’s never been easier. I was fairly late to the game personally, but I’ve dipped into a few Kickstarter projects here and there and, in the future, am interested in contributing to more.
As I’ve said elsewhere on the forums, I backed Children of Zodiarcs as my first Kickstarter project, which recently came out and I have been fairly happy with it (although it hasn’t totally commanded my attention, for good or for ill). How have your experiences been? Are you a frequent contributor or do you prefer to put your money only in the most trusted cases? Do you think you’ll keep doing it in the future?
(P.S. This is in General Discussion over Video Games because, obviously, games aren’t the only Kickstarter avenue! I haven’t heard too many success stories, if only because Juicero does rather command my attention…)
