This is a strategy overview of our Oct/Nov 2020 Kickstarter campaign for the building sim game The Wandering Village. We aimed to raise 30,000 Euros, but by the end of the campaign, 6500 backers had supported us with a total over 155,000 Euros.

Our game's Kickstarter surpassed its goal thanks to a demo. When posting on social news/media sites, we offered the demo instead of asking for support. Players had to provide an email to download the demo. The result was an interesting campaign dynamic.
