Thinking of using Kickstarter to fund your game? Check out these resources first!
You only get one chance to make a first impression. While it is possible (and sometimes preferable) to cancel a Kickstarter that doesn’t look like it will fund, wouldn’t it be better to get it right the first time? Running a successful generic cialis pharmacy campaign involves a ton of work, from designing a compelling product to leveraging social media and other channels to get the word out. I’ve collected a few resources that everyone who is venturing into crowdfunding should check out first.
Richard Bliss’s “Funding the Dream on Kickstarter” podcast:
This podcast is an invaluable resource for anyone looking to use crowdfunding. Nearly every episode features great advice for developers or a success (or failure) story from someone who has used crowdfunding to fund their project. My advice is to start with episode 1 and listen to them all (they’re usually only 20 minutes long). Great stuff.
Jamey Stegmaier’s posts about running a Kickstarter campaign:
Jamey has written an amazing series of posts imparting his wisdom from years of building a business based on Kickstarter board game projects. He’s even got them set up in the order you need to read them as you embark on your Kickstarter journey (though you should really just read them all).
Other great articles about developers’ experiences with Kickstarter:
Here’s some links to posts by developers who have Kickstarted (or attempted to Kickstart) a project and lived to tell about it.

My “5 Legal Moves Every Game Developer Should Make” eBook:
