Guys, I have recently discovered a wonderful idea on the internet, under the name of KICKSTARTER

What's the deal with it and your possible projects? Well, all in a nutshell, here's how it works:

1) You have a project which can be a video for you band, an album you want to record for instance (although they cover many fields, aside from music and arts in general)
2) You register as a member and expose your project on the site (all necessary details and the sum of money needed to finalize it)
3) People who like your project, can offer money so that you may gather your necessary sum, step by step
4) In return, you may offer them something such as a copy of your album, signed when it's ready, for instance

The downside is, it only works for people living in the USA sad.gif bummer on this one, but still, all you guys in the USA dreaming about getting something done, can check it out and who knows biggrin.gif

I think it's a very useful tool, don't you?

When you say indie games, you mean games developed by an individual freelancing programmer or small company?

Kickstarter is awesome smile.gif Some great products and content have started life as kickstarter projects. If you have a good idea, people will pony up real money for it!
