It’s not like you have to go too far to find problems with crowdfunding campaigns. Heck, our man Gimpy has made it a personal quest to root out Kickstarter scammers and put them on blast on YouTube. And while we’re not going to spend any time trying to excuse someone’s bad behavior over a crowdfunding campaign, we did think it’d be interesting to grab a couple of folks who have been heavily involved in them over the past few years to give us an extended peek behind the curtain.
Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.
So we welcome back Tim Densham of Catastrophe Games and Jeff Tidball of Prolific Games & Left Justified Studios to give us the inside scoop on prepping that campaign, pricing it out, the comms plan, the execution of a crowdfunding campaign, and what happens after it all ends.
How do you find your customers? How do stretch goals affect your pricing model? How quickly does the money get to you? How long should you keep a campaign open? There’s a lot to dig through as both of these gentlemen are happy to explain.
Please gallop on over to the iTunes page for our podcast and give us a rating – whatever you think is fair!
Even after all these years, we still need a few reviews short of iTunes recommending us in their podcast engine, and every rating helps. Thanks!
Thank you for visiting The Armchair Dragoons and mounting up with the Regiment of Strategy Gaming.
You can find our regiment’s social media on Mastodon, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and even Threads, if we could ever get an auto-post to it.
(We have an Instagram page and it’s really just a placeholder & redirect to our articles.)
You can support The Armchair Dragoons through our Patreon, also, and find us at a variety of conventions and other events.
Feel free to talk back to us either in our discussion forum, or in the comments below.
The Armchair Dragoons, they’re a hoot,
In wargaming, they’re absolute.
On their podcast so grand,
They conquer the land,
With dice rolls and strategy, they’re astute!
