Morning Crowdfunding Roundup

  • Announcing The Fig Finishing Fund. "A new way to support developers with final polish, localization, marketing and fees for platforms like Steam Direct."
  • DISTRAINT 2 -- Steam Greenlight. "DISTRAINT 2 is an upcoming 2D psychological horror adventure game for PC which I'll try to release around next Halloween. In the game, you are Price, a man who sold his humanity to get a partnership from a leading company: McDade, Bruton & Moore.
    DISTRAINT 2 follows the events of the first game. It's a sinister tale about restoring hope and finding your purpose."

That Fig announcement is likely a good indication that crowdfunding for video games is subsiding. Purely from an investor standpoint, I think Fig's model is horrible. Unless an indie title turns out to be a sleeper hit like Stardew Valley, the ROI for pseudo angel investing an indie isn't worth it. For CrowdX investing, it would be better to put investment money towards crowdlending platforms like Lending Club and Those sites at least have a realistic model for success.
