Crowdfunding is becoming an evergreen topic. Every month, more than 150 video game projects are launched on Kickstarter to get funded. While many projects don't succeed, there are still projects of all sizes that do.
Passionately following all trends around the topic, Thomas Bidaux will provide a very honest state of crowdfunding review for the game industry, based on actual numbers, along with pragmatic advice on what it takes to get a video game project funded in 2016.
Attendees will come out of the session with a clear picture of the opportunities for crowdfunding a game, along with current best practices for putting projects on a path to success.
The session is targeted towards anyone working at a studio that is considering doing a crowdfunding campaign in the near future. If you work in a marketing, communication or community role, you can find the best practices advice particularly useful for planning your campaign.

Once you've saved your personal schedule, you can access it from the free GDC Europe Mobile app (available approximately 30 days before the event).
