Crowdfunding platform for games launches at E3

The crowdfunding platform, specifically made for funding games, launches during E3 2012. Korstiaan Zandvliet of Gambitious just announced the date during his keynote at the Dutch Festival of Games-event.

The main difference between Gambitious and the currently popular Kickstarter is that the former does not rely on donations. Instead, a developer decides what percentage of the required funding people can buy. Someone who invests money in a project, becomes a shareholder and is entitled to dividends.

Gambitious initially launches in Europa, but is also coming to the United States as soon as legislation allows it. The company is waiting for a law which will make it possible for a platform like Gambitious to launch in the USA, which should happen in 2013.

The story is too old to be commented.
