In early February, the management team behind The Indie Game Magazine (www.indiegamemag.com)
8-Bit Funding is primarily used for alpha or beta game funding strategies and is the perfect alternative to popular funding sites like Kickstarter since it is targeted and geared towards gamers. Unlike Kickstarter, 8-Bit is International and allows developers from all over the globe to start a campaign.
8-Bit Funding has the added benefit of being geared towards gamers and is backed by great indie game sites like DIY and IGM, but 8-Bit Funding is also open to non-video indies. Creators of board games, card games and even pen and paper role-playing games are invited to begin a funding campaign. If your project is gaming related, then 8-Bit offers a funding solution for you.
ABOUT 8-BIT FUNDING:
8-Bit Funding is a crowd-funding website focused on game projects. The site was started and founded by Geoff Gibson, founder of DIYGamer.com. After experiencing and noticing the discrepancies against gaming related projects on other crowdfunding websites, the idea for 8-Bit Funding was born. The goal of 8-Bit is to help indie game developers throughout the world fund their projects. As an international website, 8-Bit Funding provides an instantaneous alternative to larger crowd-funding sites and is directly targeted at gamers. 8-Bit provides the funds to the developers in real-time and chart the growth of the funding donations toward the ultimate goal as set forth by the development team prior to launching the campaign.
