This presentation gives insights into the growth and evolution of the games category on Kickstarter. It features learnings, tips and tricks for game developers based on a long history of inspiring creative projects. Since the launch of Kickstarter in 2009, more than 17 million people have backed a project on the platform. $4.4 billion has been pledged, and 166,482 projects have been successfully funded. The gaming community on Kickstarter has its own culture and they are amongst the most active backers on the platform – if you trigger their interest. During the presentation I will only be able to scratch the surface, but am happy to chat and talk with you after the session at PG Connects.
