Gambitious is the first professional crowdfunding platform exclusively dedicated to the games industry. We help independent game developers reach the widest audience with their proposals, in order that they attract the funding they need to complete their project and to bring it to market for their fan-base For an independent games developer, the funding is one of the most important and difficult aspects of their business. But as almost every independent games developer has experienced, that, despite the fact that the video games industry continues to grow year on year, it’s deemed near-impossible to raise significant capital for new or even existing game projects!

    Funding from Strangers

    Ease of Use

    An equity crowdfunding platform for computer games only

    Pros

    From my point of view, the Gambitious equity model is an awesome way for independent game developers to attract funding. One main advantage of the equity model is that - in addition to supporters - the platform attracts serious investors. Thanks to serious investors, campaigns can make big steps. Another advantage is that the platform is exclusively for game projects. This way, most of the visitors are really interested in your project and know what you are speaking of.

    Cons

    Due to the fact that the platform is new, traffic from platform visitors (i.e. supporters of other projects) was relatively low. However, I expect this to change as soon as more projects are online. For our campaign, the small number of other projects was also an advantage, because our project was featured a longer time in the spotlight (i.e. the Gambitious front page) and because Gambitious was very flexible (i.e. Gambitious really listened to our wishes).
