Help me make an awesome game about running jumping and stabbing!

Recommended Posts

On my never ending search on ways to make some money from my games I've gone through direct selling, Pay what you want and ad supported models.

Now I'm going to try crowdsourcing!

 

I've got an idea for a game (Canabalt + generic RPG), but I know that I can't make the art to the quality this game needs.

So I'm trying to crowd source the funds to hire an artist through IndieGoGo.

Check out the campaign

 

There's a few levels of perks, from collections of my previous games (including source code for most), getting me to make a prototype of a game design of yours and even the opportunity to have a class in the game named by you!

Rather than raising cash to hire someone, why not just ask for people to do the graphics work?

You want me to give you money so you can make more money?

Who said I'm goig to be making money on the distribution of this game?

 

I haven't on my last four.

They're all ad-supported and making about 2c a day, if I'm lucky.

 

Also, depending on how much you contribute, there's "perks" for you.

 

And finally, this money goes to hiring an artist.

So, realistically, they get the money.

I can call the class in your game "Cuntmaster Flex"?

I see no reason why not.

Might limit distribution a little, though; as I found out with this game.

 

Could be intersting to think up of the unique abiliteis of that class :P
