So, you've been working hard on a game...
Tried your hand at a launch...
But ended up not funding.
Ouch.
The downside?
It's devastating, we get it.
It never feels good to have an idea you're passionate about get shot down.
It never feels good to see all your hard work go down the drain.
It never feels good to lose years of work to a grey unfunded bar.
The upside to it all?
You're here reading this today.
You're here because you don't give up in the face of obstacles.
You're here because you believe in your game.
You're here because you know you can do it.
We think you can do it, too.
With over 15 years of combined experience in the tabletop and crowdfunding industry...
We know a successful launch is possible for you...
And we're here to help you reach your goal.
And guess what?

We will provide you with:

  • A custom Kickstarter launch plan with specific, actionable tasks, focusing on your funding goal, pledge levels, shipping, page layout, videos, art, rulebook, marketing and audience building strategies.
  • A weekly calendar with actionable steps to help you plan for a successful launch
  • A one-hour video call with the team to review progress on your plan and feedback on your Kickstarter page to make sure everything is on track
  • A one-hour video call with the team to review and provide feedback on your Kickstarter page prior to launch to ensure you’re ready to relaunch with success
  • A one-hour video call with the team during your Kickstarter campaign to discuss strategies for building on your momentum and finishing your campaign strong
  • All calls will be recorded and shared with you so that you can review them anytime you need.
  • Optional: we may also make recommendations related to game development and product fit, Kickstarter video production and graphics, and/or marketing and promotion. These are optional and may be discussed further with the individual members of the team who specialize in each of these areas.
