Crowdfunding Together takes a look at different projects that our authors have deemed interesting or that need a second look for various reasons. Each author will take a look at some of the crowdfunding projects that they’ve found to highlight and bring to our reader’s attention.

Matt Holden of the Indie Game Alliance joins us for an advice post about first-time creators on Kickstarter. The Indie Game Alliance is a professional organization made of publishers who have united to bring buying power and community to indie publishers and creators. You can learn more about the Indie Game Alliance HERE.

If you are a first-time creator:

* Don't do a deluxe edition.

* Don't do an add-on.

* Don't do Kickstarter exclusives.

* Don't discount your MSRP on Kickstarter.

Just. Don't.

These things were invented by companies MUCH bigger than you, with MUCH bigger reach and buying power than you, because they know their fans had *options* other than buying their game from Kickstarter. CMON for example - I know all of their games are going to be at my favorite FLGS or deep discounter a week after they ship, and I can get it then and keep the money in my pocket in the meantime.
