44% of surveyed game developers plan to try crowdfunding
44% of surveyed game developers plan to try crowdfunding
March 1, 2013 | By Frank Cifaldi




Crowdfunding is in vogue among game developers this year, if the results of a recent survey are any indication.

The organizers of Gamasutra's sister show the Game Developers Conference recently surveyed 2,500 game developers -- all of whom either attended last year's show or plan on attending GDC 2013 later this month -- to find out more about their development practices and, hopefully, learn where the industry is headed.

The survey found that 44% of the respondents plan to crowdfund a game in the future, meaning the landscape could be getting even more crowded soon on services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo.

Only 8 percent of those surveyed have worked on a crowdfunded project, and only 4 percent said that crowds were their primary source of funding.

More results like these are available here.
