The likes of Kickstarter, Fig and Indiegogo have forever changed the way creative projects can be brought to market. The idea of crowdfunding a video game that might be deemed too niche or risky a proposition is now common place, with many developers seeking to retain control of their ideas rather than compromising their vision to fit a publisher's remit. However, for every success story there are countless projects that have missed their target for a variety of reasons.
For the past couple of years, Dead Good has been involved with a wide variety of successful crowdfunded video game and movie campaigns, helping fund-raisers raise awareness of their projects amongst their target audience. From international to pan-European PR, Dead Good has consulted on pre-launch buzz and campaign activity planning, helping project creators understand what makes for hard news in an ever changing media environment. Crowdfunding PR 101: a Kickstarter campaign is not news on its own.
