Sure! A kickstarter is simply a website/event where people pledge money (an amount from $1 on up) to support the development of a project. As a backer, you often receive special privileges regarding the product. A discount on the final game, an art book, prints, etc.

The team developing Queen at Arms has already completed a lot of work for the game, and has released a demo. The purpose of kickstarter is to help the funding of finishing the game and distributing it, I believe.

The Demo is over Here:

Kickstarter is basically a place where people can donate money to support the creation/production of something. You get prizes in return if you pass certain markers. I was part of a couple. One was a hilarious fail because of a goal that none of us agreed to when the amount was set. It even prompted a troll to throw one fake dollar at us so that he'd keep a record of our impossible goal when we did not succeed.

It can support artists, food people, gamers, blah blah blah. Yeah, that's it.

Ooh thanks for explaining! What happens if a project doesn't get finished though? Do those bonuses still get distributed? I know sometimes I pin my hopes on a really great project (like on lemmasoft forums) and then the makers fall off the surface of the Earth or something/give up/decide to not continue due to issues. So I've stopped searching the in progress forums, and only look at complete games. Facing disappointment each and every time is kinda not my cup of tea.

But I think I'd like to try one of these days :> supporting who I can would be nice >v<

Wait. I just realized that this was posted in the wrong section. I'll deal with it after the event. Please post game news in the Game Discussion section in the future.

Events that do not succeed just don't get anything. Nothing that was offered as a donation will go to the group. You will get a big UNSUCCESSFUL on the project.

Sorry about that! I was originally looking to post under "Game News" but it seemed reserved for already finished games, so I clicked the "share event" option, and I think it directed me here by default. Is there a particular way to move a thread over?

But yeah. If the project fails, backers keep their money. This one seems to be doing well so far, though. Their goal is modest, and they've reached the 1/3 mark within 24 hours. That seems pretty promising to me.

Since the event is lagging somewhat, I moved the thread already. I don't see regular member options, so I don't now if you can move things yourself.

You cannot post in the Otome Game News section because you are not a Moderator or the Administrator. Those posts go directly to the front page, so if you were a newb or spambot and posted something wrong or unrelated, that would not have been ideal.
