Getting Crowd Funding for Your Indie Game

Crowd funding is not always necessary but in some cases may be quite helpful. A funding campaign may also be very beneficial in raising awareness for your game and getting people invested into your concept early on.

Releasing an Indie Game: Indie Game Crowd Funding.

Here are some popular crowd funding options.

Get crowd funding for your indie game.

Depending on your indie game development needs, it is possible that asking the masses to help you fund the development of your indie game may be a good idea. Aside from the obvious financial benefits, a funding campaign will also help raise awareness for your game and get the community involved. Some people also set up steam greenlight campaigns at the same time to link the two together and increase traffic.

Kickstarter

Kickstarter is one of the most popular crowd funding platforms currently on the web. Although Kickstarter is not specific to indie game projects, many indie game developers choose to put up a funding campaign on kickstarter to raise money for their game development. Although running a successful kickstarter campaign can be very time consuming, it can be of tremendous benefit in both making money before the completion of your game as well as raising awareness and creating a fanbase.

INDIEGOGO.com

Indiegogo is also a great place to setup your crowd funding campaign. You will find many other game developers setting up their funding campaign on indiegogo and may be successful in doing so yourself.
