I'll say this: within two days of his post the campaign went from 32k to 46k. I don't know if that's all from him, but it was really cool to watch! He certainly has an amazing attitude about supporting indie devs!

Nope! it was with the help of about 20 or so other campaign creators who gave me a shoutout. JackSepticEye did eventually play the demo, and some other streamers, which certainly helped! It was mainly the other campaign creators :) Thanks for such kind words!

I had lunch with a friend of mine who I consider a successful business man. He started a really incredible jean company, and he told me he despised Kickstarter. Basically, he told me so many individuals set out to make something great, and they have a super cool trailer and rewards, but they don't know a damn thing about actually starting a company or finishing a project. So they actually just dug themselves a hole. So I'd say that's one of the hardest parts! Knowing the cost of creation going in, and ensuring your budget is accurate! I'm guilty of this to some degree: if Pinstripe hadn't raised 100k, and only raised the goal of 28k, I'm not so sure I would have made a game that people actually felt proud of. Are you talking about a specific campaign in general?
