Hi folks! This is another article about Next.Land game. Let's talk about funding today. I want to clarify the reason and purpose of my crowdfunding campaigns and I want to also describe some other funding options.
Crowdfunding is very popular way to help many projects become successful. It brings a ton of benefits to the people who use it, whether to raise funds for the idea or gather helpful feedback. Crowdfunding is very often mistaken for a donation. It is not true. Is is more like a pre-order of some products or services. The difference is, that the primary intention of contributors/backers is to help some project become real, finished or successful.
Without a doubt, Kickstarter and Indiegogo are the most popular crowdfunding platforms today. I want to start Indiegogo campaign first. It is a better choice for me, because Indiegogo has less restrictions for projects. It is also my first crowdfunding attempt and I know it will not be perfect. Based on the experience from Indiegogo campaing I will launch Kickstarter campaign next.
It is really simple. I want to promote Next.Land. I can create a perfect game, but it is useless if nobody knows about it. Next.Land is a MMO game so I need to create a wide player base. More players, more feedback, more feedback, a better game. An additional reason is money of course. It would be pathetic to pretend I don't like to raise funds in the campaigns. Developing a game is a costly business. I have already invested a lot of resources into this project and I will keep doing this. With your help, however, I will be able to obtain a better computer and network infrastructure and provide a better game performance.
I definitely don't want Next.Land to be a pay to win game, but contributors deserve a reward for sure. For you support in the crowdfunding campaigns you can select from two types of rewards. There is 5$ silver premium account or 10$ gold premium account ready for you. I want to keep rewards very simple. I think 10$ support is generous enough and there is no reason to offer higher rewards.
Silver - $5
Gold - $10
|Increased player limits|
|Boost to player basic statistics|
|Premium building skins|
|Your name in the credit section|
|Pre-launch name booking|
|Pre-launch property booking|
|Free voting points|
Exact reward details will be revealed later. All depends on the player based. I will adjust the limits to keep balance between premium and non premium accounts to reduce possible pay-to-win attributes.
All funds raised by the crowdfunding campaigns will be used primary for computer and network infrastructure. I can't be more specific, because I have absolutely no idea how popular Next.Land will be.
