Sheila and I had a little thread going on Lindsey's post about the Arcane game table, and I thought it was useful knowlege to know about Gambitious.
It's a new (just announced a few weeks ago) crowfunding platform that focuses on funding and developing independent games.
Think Kickstarter for video games.
What's different are a couple of things:
1) It's only in the UK for now because
2) the company's staff makes sure there is a business plan and idea of how the projects will progress before they even allow them to be posted.
The result, future backers don't get burned out as often.
I think it's a great idea, and will be following the progress of Gambitious to see when it will be in America.
