What does it take to create a successful Kickstarter campaign? Better yet, what lessons have we learned from previous campaigns?
Doug TenNapel is not new to Kickstarter. He raised over $115,000 with his first campaign to print a beautiful hardbound archive of his sketchbook’s. Now Doug and the founders of Pencil Test Studios, Mike Dietz and Ed Schofield (also from Earthworm Jim and The Neverhood) are joining forces to create a brand new game called ARMIKROG which has already raised over $230,000 in the first 2 days alone. Their goal is $900,000 so head on over to their Kickstarter page and pledge to help them hit their goal.
Patrick Yurick hosted an amazing online discussion about Comic Marketing last night and I was one of the panelists along with Jen Vaughn, Mark Luetke, Lee Cherolis and Enrique Lugo. You can see the whole hour long discussion here:

Shortly after I ended my second Kickstarter for reMIND Volume 2, which raised over $107,000 Daniel and I got onto Skype to talk about the whole adventure. This is just part one of the conversation. Sorry it took me so long to edit and upload. :(
