What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is an enormous global community built around creativity and creative projects. Over 17 million people, from every continent on earth, have backed a Kickstarter project. It helps artists, musicians, filmmakers, designers, and other creators find the resources and support they need to make their ideas a reality.
Every Kickstarter project is an opportunity to create the universe and culture you want to see. The games you wish you could play, the films you wish you could watch, the technology you wish someone was building — on Kickstarter, people work together to make those things a reality. Take a look around: right this minute, thousands of people are funding their creative ideas. Feel like joining them?
Kickstarter and the Games Market
Of the $4.26 billion dollars of successful campaign funds raised to date, the games category raised the most pledges, $1.09 billion. Despite the always-plugged-into-technology environment nowadays, it has become immensely popular for people to connect and bond over a board game and opt for a more meaningful experience. This is what has driven the demand for board games to increase at a compounded annual growth rate of 10%, according to Report Linker’s latest market research. https://www.reportlinker.com/p05482343/Board-Games-Market-Global-Outlook-and-Forecast.html
How does it work?
Kickstarter uses an all-or-nothing funding model for creators. If the project doesn’t reach its goal, then funds don’t get collected, and no money changes hands. This minimizes risk for creators — imagine ending up with only $5,000 and a bunch of people expecting a $50,000 film! All-or-nothing funding makes it easier for backers like you to pledge to your project with confidence that you’ll be able to get the job done.
