Group DescriptionGames developed through crowd funding, where developers generally put an outline, trailer or a demo of a game online, and ask interested users to pool their money together to fund the full development of the game. Contributions are often divided into different tiers each with their own reward. Reaching a certain goal set by the developer is usually required to have the initiative succeed. Through sites such as Kickstarter, contributors get a refund when the goal is not met. Crowd funding does not imply that the final game will be released for free. Commercial games that are sold in alpha state with on-going development do not belong to this group. Donationware also does not belong in this group. Crowd funding is usually done before full development of the game.
Other crowd funding sites for games are IndieGoGo and 8-Bit Funding.
