Kickstart Your Game – March RPG Blog Carnival!
Welcome to the RPG blog carnival for March! This month’s theme is crowdsourcing and crowdfunding RPGs. If you have a blog and plan on participating, be sure to leave us a link in the comments so we can include it in the round-up at the end of the month. Here at Skyland Games we plan on doing several articles focusing on how crowdfunding is revolutionizing the gaming industry.
I’ve personally funded several RPG, card, and dice game projects. Most have been awesome, but we’ll talk about the pros and cons of being a funder, and a designer.
There are a lot of other crowdfunding sites out there as well like Rockethub, New Jelly, and Indiegogo; each with their own focus and feel. All of my experiences have been with kickstarter thus far, but I would be interested to hear if any other gamers have had experiences on either side of the equation on other sites.
One awesome resource for kickstarter game projects is the Game Whisperer. There is a lot of great advice and cool interviews with people who have had great success with the crowdfunding model.
I’m eager to see what you guys do with this theme! Let us know on your blog in a carnival post, or in the comments below!
PS – Thanks for making yesterday’s article our most viewed article to date! We’re on pace today to beat yesterday’s record! We’ll be happy to post any updates to the situation regarding an official apology to The Wyvern’s Tale, or any other significant updates. Thanks for your interest!
