Now on to another part we would like to speak about. We currently have added Assault Knights to 8-bit funding. The game currently has it's own page on this site below.
What is 8-bit funding you might Ask? Here is a small rundown about what the site actually is for..
1. What is 8-Bit Funding? 8-Bit Funding is a crowd funding website dedicated to game developers and gaming enthusiasts.
The idea is pretty simple: as a project creator you'll register an account and create a new project. You'll include a bang-up video explaining why people should help contribute to your project. In return for contributions you'll also supply various "perks" that users can earn should they contribute a specific amount.
2. How does 8-Bit Funding work? Anybody can create an account. From there, if you decide you want to be a contributor, you can browse the various gaming-related projects and contribute to them as you see fit acquiring various perks along the way. As a creator, you can start a new project to raise funds. Everything is run through PayPal making 8-Bit Funding an international website.
3. Why does 8-Bit Funding exist? 8-Bit Funding was created as a way to help fund gaming initiatives. While sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo have pioneered the crowdfunding initiative, 8-Bit Funding was created due to each's lack of appeal amongst the game industry. Basically, neither site promotes gaming projects very often, or very well. As a gaming-centric crowdfunding website, project creators are free to market in terms that are familiar to other gamers, not the general consumer.
4. What type of projects are allowed? 8-Bit funding is exclusively for gaming related projects. Game development, gaming websites, game-related projects. Anything that has to do with the video/board/card game induustry is allowed on 8-Bit Funding.
5. Does it cost anything?
Creating a project and account is 100% free and always will be. For projects that meet their funding goals a 5% fee will be taken from the top. Should a project only reach half way to their project we will then take a 10% fee.
6. What are the exact fees associated with 8-Bit Funding?
As contributors fund your project, a specific fee will be charged on each transaction by PayPal. This fee is 2.9% + $0.30.
After said PayPal fee, we will charge our own fee of 5% for successful projects. Our own fees come out AFTER the PayPal fees have already been taken.
So if you would like to help this project grow into something better then what it is now. And help support
other game developers like myself, and other people or need funding for your own project, I would say to go there and help out people like you and me. The site is very good and seems to have alot of supporters.. If you want to help support this project, please go to the site link here..
As said earlier before are trying to raise money for our project, and hope that this will get us there. We currently need the 10,000 dollars to pay for stuff that is needed for the game, like new models, and other expenses.
