The St. Louis Game Developer Co-op provides support, resources, and events for game creators in St. Louis, Missouri

Kickstarter Panel Resources

October 30th, 2013

By: Carol Mertz

Thanks to everyone who came out to attend the Kickstarter panel at Lab1500! It was a very informative event, and we were glad to have so much interest and engagement from our attendees. The overall feel from the panelists was that Kickstarter is a great resource for both funding and gauging user interest, and with enough time, interest, and motivation, even an unsuccessful crowd funding campaign can be invaluable to your project’s success.

Once again, many thanks to our panelists Robin Rath (Pixel Press), Ryan Winzen (Starcraft Universe), Rob Santos (Homeworld Touch & Homeworld 3), and Ben Triola (Something Fragile) for coming out and sharing their experiences. Also, thanks to Thomas Marshall (Dreamland Delivery and the Nightmare Night) who was unfortunately unable to make it to the event.

Some of the resources discussed at the event:

Let us know if we’ve forgotten any resources mentioned, and we’ll be glad to include them. Also, please feel free to continue the crowdfunding discussion in the comments below.
