While Kickstarter gets a lot of the press, there are other crowd-sourcing platforms that are friendlier to people outside of the United States.
Canadian game developer Deirdra Kiai, creator of The Play and Life Flash By, has a campaign for a fun project on IndieGoGo called Dominique Pamplemousse in “It’s All Over Once the Fat Lady Sings!”.
Kiai describes the project as a “stop motion musical detective adventure” and has provided a few behind-the-scenes posts describing how she creates the stop motion puppets and music. There’s even an early Pamplemousse demo available.
Here’s the video introducing the project and explaining why you should pledge to support it:
Pledging just $5 gets you a copy of the game when it is complete, and there are quite a few perks at different pledge levels, such as getting your name in the credits, a model of your head in the style of the game characters, a puppet from the game, and even a short film of the characters singing and dancing to the song of your choice.
As of this writing, the project is a little over 30% funded with 16 days left to go. Pledge at least $1 to help get this project fully funded.
