Kickstarter opens to UK-based projects
Kickstarter opens to UK-based projects
October 10, 2012 | By Eric Caoili




Newsbrief: Popular crowdfunding platform Kickstarter will extend beyond the U.S. for the first time, and will soon allow creators in the UK to create campaigns on the service and raise money for their games.

UK-based game makers can start building their project on the site today (UK campaigns will be hosted on the same site as U.S. projects), and will be able to launch them starting October 31.

The mechanics of running or contributing to a UK-based Kickstarter campaign will be nearly identical to those for U.S. projects, with minor variances in payment processing. More details on how Kickstarter will handle UK projects are available here.

So... how about for us Canucks? I mean, we're still here... kinda a big country... lots of people... Kinda could use something like this because Indiegogo is really kinda terrible and suffering from severe exposure and reputation problems since they only recently started offering a fixed-funding option. Just sayin'.
