Overview: Crowdfunding for games has evolved a lot over the years, and it has become an exercise in community building and communication, with its own codes and best practices. Drawing on Thomas' insights built from extensive data-mining on Kickstarter and similar platforms, as well his work across 30+ campaigns for games on different platforms, the talk will go over the current state of crowdfunding for video games, the different platforms that are now available to game makers, what type of projects have the best chance of getting funded, and what techniques work the best to run a successful campaign.
