Gambitious, a crowd-funding platform designed specifically for funding video game projects is asking established developers and those new to the game development to submit proposals for their game projects prior to the service's launch later this summer. The Holland-based crowd funding platform is an alternative to Kickstarter, providing a game development specific funding model that provides investors with an equity stake in the project instead of reward-based incentives. The platform will offer funding across both the United States and Europe, and will let developers choose how much capital they need to fund a project, and the amount of equity in the project they are willing to offer as well.
"In February, Tim Schafer and Double Fine proved to the world that crowdfunding for games is very real and that fans can choose the games they want to be made by funding them directly," said Mike Wilson. "As far as my partners and I are concerned, this represents the biggest opportunity independent developers have ever had to truly control their own creative and financial destiny, but it has to be handled with care if it is to last."
You may remember Mike Wilson from Gathering of Developers, along with Harry Miller. Both recently became partners in Gambitious.
