Welcome to Gambitious, The Professional Crowdfunding for the Videogame Industry from Gambitious Crowdfunding on Vimeo.

Gambitious, a Kickstarter-esque crowd funding site dedicated to independent videogame projects, has opened its (metaphorical) doors today. Developers set their own funding goal (€20,000 to €2.5 million), project terms, and decide if they go for funding though equity raise or pledges/donations. As with Kickstarter, pledges are will only be paid if projects succeed in matching or beating their funding targets.

The fact that Gambitious is the only videogame-specific crowd funding site may make projects easier to find if you're seeking to get in on the ground floor, though we'll wait and see whether it's a viable alternative to the likes of Kickstarter or IndieGoGo.

Interestingly, 3D Realms have already stepped up to the plate with a new FPS, as has Firefly, who plan to crowd fund the sequel to Stronghold: Crusader. You can read more here.

Fail.. I'm sorry checked out the site the biggest missing piece is how much people want me to invest. To find that out I have to sign in first. So I have to give my details away and then you will tell me how much you want? Sorry I don't need to do that on Kickstarter.

Has Stronghold 3 been fixed yet?, You're review suggests it's buggy/broken. If Firefly want people to fund them maybe they should fix what they already have out there first. :/

It's for those two projects you can't see the target - because they are still "Upcoming".

Whole site feels fairly cheap though. Struggling to see why this would be any better than Kickstarter.
