This means that local developers, publishers, and anyone else with great ideas can create local campaigns easily and effectively. Previously it’s been a bit of a pain in the neck for Aussies to run Kickstarters.
To help get people with ideas up and running Kickstarter is running a series of workshops in the coming weeks. These will provide tips and tricks on how to run successful campaigns – and if you are intending on launching a campaign it would be worth attending these. Oftentimes the difference between success and failure with Kickstarter is simply understanding what people are looking for.
Campaigns can be built now, but not launched until November 13. Given how many independent developers we have in Australia, and how little funding is available for many of them, this can only be a good thing for the local industry.
