Crowdfunding by BackerKit
BackerKit have announced Crowdfunding by BackerKit as they throw their hat into the crowdfunding ring currently dominated by Kickstarter and the hotly pursuing Gamefound.
"We’re building Crowdfunding by BackerKit to give creators more space and opportunity to collaborate with backers, build closer relationships, and have more successful projects." – Backerkit
They’ve already shared that a number of publishers plan to host their next campaigns with them which includes Cephalofair Games, Unstable Games, Leder Games, Monte Cook Games, Restoration Games, Thundergryph, Greater than Games, Wehrlegig Games, and more.
They currently have a small selection of projects seeking funding, along with previews of their upcoming projects, which you can check out on their site.
Highlights of upcoming projects include:
- A new Cephalofair Games project with over 500 miniatures for their existing catalog of RPG games including Gloomhaven, Forgotten Circles, Jaws of the Lion, and Frosthaven. This would also include access to a 2nd printing of Frosthaven.
"When the time came to choose a platform for our next project - Backerkit was the immediate first thought. The ease in which we were able to leverage their platform to grow, and more importantly serve, our community was incredible - and it only made sense to ask if Crowdfunding itself was something they could incorporate into their already immense tool kit." - Price Johnson, COO, Cephalofair Games
- The Spirit Island: Nature Incarnate expansion from Greater than Games, which includes new spirits, aspects, threats, and powers, for their immensely popular Spirit Island board game.
