Boston FIG Launches Kickstarter Campaign
The Boston Festival of Indie Games indie game Figgie Bundle is being distributed by 2013 fest sponsor IndieGameStand, an emerging digital distributor of indie games. Launched in September 2012, IndieGameStand is a new, low-barrier of entry way for indie developers to promote their games and be included in a dynamic indie gaming bundle. IndieGameStand hand-selects every game that is offered on their online service.
Mike Kanarek, BostonFIG co-producer and programming co-chair, says, “We are working hard to meet the requests and expectations of our festival fans this year by expanding our physical event space, adding more categories of content, and bringing in high-profile speakers. This means our costs have increased quite a bit, so we felt that a well-promoted Kickstarter campaign could be an incredibly fruitful effort. Our goal is to raise $15,000, and to ideally even exceed this target.”
Other Kickstarter rewards for Boston Festival of Indie Games include VIP passes to the fest, a special art pack with game and concept art straight from the BostonFIG Art Gallery, pairs of tickets to the BostonFIG Concert at The Middle East in Cambridge, a one-of-a-kind BostonFIG tabletop game bundle, a collection of musical tracks from games featured at BostonFIG, high quality prints of every BostonFIG 2013 poster, and even a fest after-party drink named after top-tier pledgers!
