Since Pernilla Rydmark (Internet Foundation in Sweden ) visited us on a lecture I have been obseced whit Crowdfounding and Kickstarter. I have put a lot of time and thinking in what makes some projects more successful then others. What I have realised is that I do not understand a thing why people think the way they do!!
I mean there is a lot crazy and strange projects among the most founded Kickstarter projects. If you go to Kickstarter you can read about the “toplist” but I am going to meansion some of them in this blogpost, just to explain what I mean by“strange and crazy projects” getting a lot of money.
One popular project is the “Exploding Kitten”, Pernilla Rydmark talked about this project and so summarize it is a card game for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.
Almost a third of all projects are games like WARMACHINE, Ghostbusters, Robotech etc. What’s up with all this gaming? Is it that important?
