February 13, 2020: Kickstarter Reports, February Update
In 2019, Kickstarter became a more important part of our operations and we launched and closed a total of 11 different Kickstarter campaign across our two accounts. A total of $638,497 was pledged to our Kickstarter projects during the year (which doesn't include BackerKit funds), supporting the idea that the crowdfunding platform is a very important part of today's market. Kickstarter does not replace traditional methods of publishing and distributing games, but it does make for a great addition to those age-old tools required to make games.
Kickstarter is useful for the big project, yes, but we find that it really works well for those smaller games and accessories that we would normally shelve and not pursue. The Hexagram series for use with The Fantasy Trip, for example, owes its very existence to Kickstarter! The campaign for issue #4 is now running on Kickstarter.
To help all of you keep up with where we're at on projects, here's an overview of the current projects and the status of each:
The Fantasy Trip: Decks of Destiny
Pocket Box Games of the Eighties
That's a total of 7 active projects:
A great way to start the new year! If all goes well, we'll see many of you back on Kickstarter in 2020 as we bring more new ideas to life.
To receive notification when we launch new projects, we recommend following both the Steve Jackson Games and Warehouse 23 accounts, as well as liking and following our Facebook page.
